Hello Everyone...

Another day and another card...I'm not going to let another week slip by..

Had a great day in the garden...weeded and looked at all the new seedlings popping up, and the tubers are poking out of the soil in the lovely Spring weather...tonight..COLD SOUTHERLIES..that's Spring for you.

Anyway have another card to share....

I found the garden picture on the net and thought how nice it would be to be sitting in the lounge gazing out of a window at the lovely flowers..

So went through my stash and found one of my chipboard windows from WOC, with the little birds and vines, it was just right.

I distressed the edges again..[ my thing at the moment]  and added a few flowers...didn't really need much more...

The other side view...with a little pearl heart poked in there..

Challenges to enter....

Thanks for calling in again..two posts in two days..I'm starting to scare myself..

I will see you again Thursday..right now I'm off to play Super Cow at iwin games [love it]...and munch on a kit kat...and if I'm real lucky there will no earthquakes tonight, not like last night..shake rattle and roll..5.8 and lasted for 40 seconds...that's a loooong one...and there were 4 more through the night but I slept through those ones..only small..drop...cover...hold...are the rules and what did we do...sat there in a frozen state and

A very pretty image and love the decorative frame. Stunning card. You had a scary time!! We had one a few years ago in Greece, when we were on holiday. We were on the bed having an afternoon nap. It was scary and I just asked hubby if the earth had moved for him?!! It did feel very weird. Stay safe. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Hi Chrissy I know that Earthquakes must be real scary but never having experienced one I wish I could....just a small one of course, just glad that you are safe. Chrissy your card is full of so much beauty and delight I love how you have created the window effect I wish I could look out onto something as beautiful, the papers and embellishments are gorgeous I love it.

Hope things have settled down now

What a lovely card, Chrissy - the vivid scene through the window really glows, tempting me out for a walk in the garden! Love the delicate filigree and the doves, and the flowers and shabby edges finish it perfectly.

Very strange about the comment box - it seems to be working fine on my computer, and on a couple of other people's that I've asked. I don't really know what to suggest, but thank you for letting me know. I think you said you were going to email, but if you did, it hasn't got through.

Hope all is well with you. I've come back from my week's work in Norway with virulent food poisoning, and I'm having to do a whole bunch of other workshops this week, so I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself. Hope to do some proper catching up soon.

So glad to hear that you're okay with the earth shake. I've felt that only once and it was enough. Tornadoes I can take,'s all different to me. As for your card, that's sensational Chrissy. I feel so spoiled to get to see something from you almost every day. I am loving what you've doing.
big hugs to you,

Oh and did someone say, Kit Kat??? YUMMY!!
