Window to the World

Today's challenge in my cardmaking group was to use either a stamp or a die of a window and what you usually see outside.  I have french doors that lead out to our deck and we have trees at the end of our deck that a lot of birds hang out in because we have a bird feeder close by.  That is why I picked this stamp set, of course I had to go further and make a table with some flowers and a frame on it to top  it off :)

Poppy stamps -- Grand Gothic arch die
American crafts -- seed stamp set (birds on branch)
Distress inks -- tumbled glass, mustard seed, tea dye and walnut stain
Cosmo cricket -- paper
Inkadinkado -- Florals stamp set for vase stems and flowers, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- Labels trio (table) classic scalloped square small (frame) die
Sizzix -- Woodgrain embossing folder
Stamps of life -- minis 4 circles sentiment stamp

They are once again predicting more snow for tomorrow, but they are talking we will get in the 50's on Tuesday, one day of warmer weather even though it is suppose to rain but I will take it.

I am quite sore this morning our Church is redoing our sanctuary, new carpeting, painting, molding, platform, rewiring of the sound.  Our church family is doing all the work except the carpeting and we did it all in this past week.  It has been great to see us all come together and work hard to bring new life to our Lord's house.  This girl is done tired out and hurting all over, but I haven't put in nearly the hours the men who rebuilt the whole platform, they did a wonderful job too.  So needless to say today I am taking the day off except to do dishes. I also have a few more challenges I need to finish up with my cardmaking group.

Hope you all enjoy your weekend, and get a little time to create!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by, I love hearing from you,
