Looking Through My Kitchen Window

Hi all, I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend and that those of you with snow have not received too much more. We have had barely any snow so far this year, and as we are already in late January, it is highly doubtful that we will be getting any.

As it is Sunday, it is time for another Release from Digistamps4Joy. This time the rest of my team mates and I have been lucky and Margy has given us 2 images to play with, a wonderful little scenic image drawn by Jen Lee and a fabulous sentiment by Margy herself. I didn’t have time to make 2 cards this time, but I did take the time to play with Jen’s image. It’s called Through the FarmhouseWindow. Now I have to tell you what I told Margy when I saw this fabulous image. Our house that we just moved from was on the corner of 2 roads, both of which came to dead ends. The one road turned into a dead end behind our house. And at the end of that road was a farm, with cows and a hill, only one hill, but this image made me think of our old home and the wonderful farm land I could see looking out my kitchen window. Thank you Jen for bringing me back home for just a bit with your wonderful image.
The sketch I used is this one from Stampin Royalty.

I got the idea for the colours from CDAC’s new Inspiration Challenge.

And the sentiment is from Beccy’s Place. I hope that you will make your way over to the Digistamps4Joy Challenge blog and check out all of the fabulous new images being added to our store and the incredible creations that my team mates have made to inspire and delight you.
Thanks for looking ~ Charlene
