Much Excitement in the Turley household

My daughter has arrived home for a 10 day holiday so there is much excitement in the household.  All my family together for a few days R&R on Waiheke Island.  Emma and her partner arrived at 6.45 am and we are all packed and waiting to head off to catch the ferry over.  Two cars packed to the gunnel's.  Enough food to feed an army.... not just 6 of us for 3 nights!   Oh well, would rather have more than less.

Today I do have a card to share.  I wanted to enter the City Crafter's challenge last week.... to use Woodgrain.

Window Frame Thinking of You.

I have had the window die ( Spellbinder De-lite ) for ages but this is the first time I've used it.  I had some woodgrain paper that I picked up at a $2 shop.  Didn't quite turn out how I envisaged, but Hey that's crafting !!!       I cut out the window from the wood grain paper and some cream card.  Did a bit of paper piecing to cover up some bits that I didn't want to stay open, made the curtains ( Didn't realise till I looked at the photo, my scallops are going sideways :-(  )  Used another De-lite die to make the greenery for the window and a couple of punches for the flowers.   Through the window I have stamped a Hero Arts Starburst stamp in Old Paper to resemble wallpaper.   Distressed all the edges. Finished with a Simon Says die and sentiment stamp.   Something a bit different.       

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter....
