It's a Long Way

It's Friday, and I am moving at a slow but steady pace.  I have been playing with some ideas on lighting and shadows, this morning as I was waiting for something to dry, seems lately I do a lot of that, I started playing with this tree, it is perfect for my owl.  As I was working the song "It's a Long Long Way to Tipperary" starting rolling around in my head, lol, have no idea what brain file it flipped out of but it just worked for this card.
The song was written in 1912 as a pub bet and just took off, it was adopted by an Irish Regiment in 1914 and was heard on the front in WW1 and so is remembered as a war song.  I guess I will be singing it all weekend as I march to my own drummer.  Hope your songs are happy this weekend, hugs

Oh Sandi, you march to your own drummer with such zest for life and kindness for your fellow man, that more people should join your "band" of positivity!

I like how Bonnie said it.... I loved your littlesstory, as always, and the owl won my heart. Long long ago in the Land of the Art for Carole, I did a lot of artwork with owls. This owl of yours is by far the cutest little hoot hoot I've ever seen.

Sandi ---- Tipperary has a nice catchy tune, and we know how those are hard to ignore :-) I love your card and I love your blog. I have been away from blogging and reading blogs for too long; long enough to lose the old one, but I have begun again with and I would love it if you would follow again. I miss my blogging friends!
