Flower Jars on the Sill

Hello Friends and Family,

I have another card for you today...I used the honkin' big Accu-Cut machine at my LSS to cut out the card base with the window/shutter opening.  Stamped the image a few times, colored with Copics and  paper pieced the jars and  popped them up on pop dots.  I "built the shelf with two pieces of paper one for the base the the other mitered on the edges and distressed with mahogany colored distress ink...(I forget the actual name of the ink color)... When I folded the shelf in half I used my finger to color the front edge of the shelf with distress ink.
Haven't added a sentiment because I don't know what I'm going to use the card for.....
Thanks again so much for your comments and your visits to my blog......

I love this! So different! I dreamed about you last night. I dreamed my Mom went to a card class and came home with cards and I was looking through them and saw one I recognized and I said, "Hey, I've seen this card before." and then I turned it over and saw your name and told my Mom, "She's in my blog group!"

That dream was pretty tame unlike the one I had about a naked, dancing Tony Danza in the mall near a Bombshell Stamps store. I'm so weird!

Oki Doki... this one just does it for me, I love the open window, I adore the jars on the window ledge.. it gives you the feeling of being in Italy or france.. the rustic colours and just lovely...

And talking of Lovely, I love the kitty trio in your blog header :-)

Really cool card. Love the shutter style window. The jars are such homey images, makes me want some jam! Fabulous card! Cute new pic of the kitties, too.

1st of all, your kitties are adorable. Do you happen to know if it's true that Tabbies are only males? I had a chance to play with one of these awesome dies too. But that ginormous machine will NOT be making it in my house! Beautiful job on your card. TFS & Big Hugs!!!

You are so creative! I love this fantastic card- what a neat idea to make a ledge that the jars can sit on! Perfect colors too. TFS
