What is outside my window?

What a fun challenge over at Less is More today - 'what is outside your window?'  I have been unable to play along with my favourite challenge for some weeks due to being in temporary accommodation, and having much of my craft supplies in storage.  Well, I'm still in the same circumstance, but when I saw this week's challenge, I just had to try to join in!   I have included a photo of exactly what is outside my window at present - a Feijoa fruit tree, and a bird feeder.  It is a delightful outlook, shielding this little cottage from the road nearby, and providing lots of interest.  At night of course, possums visit to eat or play in the trees!  They are louder than you'd think!

So here is my CAS interpretation of this view.

Stamps:  WPlus9 - Folk Art Florals
Die:  Mama Elephant 'Thanks' script cut from dark green card from my stash
Ink:  Hero Arts Shadow inks - Green Hills, Field Greens, Passion Flower
Stencil:  MFT Cloudy Day

It's good to be back, and thank you for visiting!


  1. Whatvan absolutely gorgeous card! I love the colours and the design you've gone for. The cloud stencil in the background really sets it all off nicely. Great job!

  2. Super make and view .. craft materials in storage? YIKES, however did you manage?


  3. Your card is so beautiful Ann. The way you have continued those pale clouds onto the base card stock is wonderful. That is such a pretty outlook that you have there. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More (and I hope you get all your crafty stash back soon!)
