Watching the kids play...

I'm in the States. New Jersey to be exact. Yesterday was VERY long (up for 23 hours straight, and back up again after less than 6 hours sleep) but I'm doing ok.

This card is one I dreamed up while waiting for my new GinaK stamps, but I'm not happy with the execution. I need to keep working on it, because I love the concept of watching the kids make the snowman through a window. When I get back home though you can rest assured that I will rework this card until I'm happy. For now, I'll take any feedback you all have!

I stamped the kids on a half sheet of Stamper's Select cardstock and watercolored it with reinkers an dmy aquapainter.. Next, I trimmed my River Rock cardstock to fit over it. that wasn't easy. Then, I decided my wall needed some wallpaper, so I trimmed the designer paper to fit over the river rock, leaving some trim around the window. Then, I added the window sheet and put some very thin strips of river rock cardstock on it to mimic muntons on the window.

Lastly, I added the greeting in the hodpodge. I think I need to reorient the card, and re-think the greeting part...but I'll come up with something. Fo rnow...I still love the idea!

Hope you all are having a great day...I'm enjoying getting to spend time with my family here, and Julia is having a wonderful time with her grandparents, aunties, and little cousin Maddie! Soon her other Aunt and Uncle will arrive, and then on Friday we'll drive up to Boston to see her newest cousin, Camden at Boston Children's.
