Hey Girl

Have you ever started a card, then like 2 hours later, you can't see your desk and you're not really sure how to get the idea you drew from the sketch into an actual card? This was that card :)

A window card. Of course my mind wants to come up with something super creative. But, let's face it, it's a window. Just make a card and have fun :)

I made a grid 3 x 3 and drew 1" circles then either punched them or used my circle cutter. For the frame, I punched a 1" circle then punched a 1 1/4" circle around the 1" circle to get the 1/4" frame. I colored the white 1/4" frame with Faded Jeans Distress Marker.

Thanks for stopping by!

Melissa, this is cool! Love all the little windows! And I can certainly commiserate with the 'expolding desk' situation, haha!

Melissa, I think this card is super-fun! Love all your windows! And your circles impress me -- I always have the darnedest time with them!!! How'd you do the hearts in top right/lower left? Are they punched and the coated in glossy accents?

Super-cute! :)

Just too darn cute! There is a LOT of work in this little masterpiece. How fun it would be to receive this in the mail and just enjoy every window? Thanks for the inspiration!

Hey! I think this is very creative! When I think about a window card I just imagine ONE window! I love that each window has a cute and different element inside and I love the bright colors you used :)

I chuckled out loud reading your post as you just described my creative process and crafty area to a t. I think your card turned out amazing, what a wonderful mix of patterns and colors. Nothing conflicts or fights for attention, which is utterly awesome.
