Thinking of you!

...and missing you too!!


Hello friends : ) happy "hump day!".  I didn't expect to be home today but I'm so glad it turned out that I could be because I have a cheerful card to share that I make in honor of Serendipity Stamps Blog Hop!  No one said I could join the hop but then again no one said I couldn't LOL there are sure some pretty cards in Blogland today!! Check out Mary, sweetest owner of Serendipity stamps, blog to learn all bout this one day only hop! and also about a nice SALE!! woo hoo


I started my card by sponging yellow on a piece of cs before cutting out my window and window box die.  Then I cut another window and window box out of a piece of white cs and attached the yellow window frame and box over the top of the white to bump it up just a bit.  I really had fun with my Daisy Border Die.  I sponged a rainbow of colors on some white cs and then cut out the die.  Next I snipped the border apart and placed them inside the window box! : )


Next I sponged some puffy clouds on a separate sheet of cs and attached it to my card base.  I stamped "thinking of you" on the top of that layer and finally added a "bumped up" top window frame and box panel using sponge tape : ) I had some left overs from the colored yellow cs as well as some extra flowers so I added a little touch of spring to the inside of my card as well.

I have decided to play along with three awesome challenges with this card!  Please check out each of them out and  then consider  joining the fun!

Such a sweet window and window box, Patti. The yellows are so well done, and I love how happy they are! The bold 'you' done in black really stands out, but doesn't take over your beautiful images. And the flowers...oh so pretty!! I expect they'll want you on their DT soon....brilliant card! Bev
