Through a Christmas window!

   Hello!  I started my Friday morning by taking a wonderful, long walk on the beach.  It was warm enough to be outside with only a light jacket on which made it tough (but not impossible!) to come back in and make a snow filled Christmas card! LOL  My card today is a partial CASE of one of Susan Nygaard's swap cards  that has been floating around!  I just loved the idea of combining these two stamps sets to create a window scene.   This idea lends itself to many outside through the window scenes!

 I changed  the card by using a different sentiment, a plain background and color combo. I colored the sentiment with markers and added mini brads.  I also hand drew the wood grain on the window sill.

Side view of the window!  Love how you can almost feel the cold noses on those kids!  I added Dazzling Diamonds to make the snow glisten in the sun.

Close up of the snow in the tress!  Not sure if you can see the sparkle, but boy is it shimmering!

The two stamp sets are Lovely as a Tree and Welcome Christmas.  I used Chocolate Chip ink to match the window sill and trim and  I sponged the sky in Tempting Turquoise.

Really fun card!!

Have any fun weekend plans?  Hope that your Friday is the beginning of a wonderful weekend for you!
I will see you soonest!

This is such a great concept and I love the shimmer of the snow and your windowsill too! I have to admit I am quite envious of the walk on the beach. It has been cold and rainy all day here...
