Welcoming Window

Ready for another Festive Friday challenge?   What is the Festive Friday challenge?  The Festive Friday challenge is a bi-weekly challenge that is inspired by a holiday/festivity.  An Inspo list of 10 items is created using the festivity as its inspiration.  To play in the challenge you need to use 3 items from the Inspo list on your project and enter it in the Festive Friday gallery.  We love seeing what you choose from the Inspo list and create.


You can also read more about how to play in the challenge HERE.


I used from the Inspo list flowers/plants, green, encouragement, and brick.  


Here's the breakdown of the products I used.  I really enjoyed putting together this fun scene.  The Welcoming Window bundle is on sale through March along with 12 other bundles and the Mini Stampin Cut & Emboss Machine.  In addition to the Welcoming Window bundle I used the Perfect Plants die to cut out the planter and plant from the Bloom Where You Are Planted DSP.


Inside I added a strip of the brick DSP and another planter and plant from the Bloom Where You Are Planted DSP.  

Now it is time to check out what the rest of the Festive Friday design team created for the challenge.

Ukraine tutorial

As a member of the Creativity Abounds Design team, I am participating in designing and selling a specially designed card making tutorial featuring a blue and yellow theme. (You can of course make the cards in any colors you'd like.) We felt called to do this in order to offer assistance to the people Ukraine.
All proceeds from the sale of this tutorial (PDF sent by email) will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross to support their work with the people of Ukraine.
The tutorial is being prepared now and should be ready for distribution by mid-March. Please reserve your bundle by commenting below or messaging me. Cost is $15.
I hope you will join me in support of this endeavor. Thank you!

This is so gorgeous, Sharon. I love the detail of the little hinges on the shutters and those tiny pink flowers... so many wonderful little elements. So warm and welcoming. I just love it.

Sharon your little garden window scene is fabulous! I love all of the little details, and am especially drawn to the flowers - what a great use of these embellishments! They add a pretty pop of colour and texture to your card.


Sharon, you showcased these elements beautifully. Your plants are perfectly positioned and I love the brickwork color in the background. Fabulous card
