Through the Round Window...

Or the square window, or the arched window, or any shape window you like!

This week it's Rhi's turn to set the dare 'I dare you to make a card with an aperture in it, it can be any shape you like and can be see through or have something covering behind it. It could be a ready made aperture card or lots of small windows punched out, diecut or handcut or one large window. It could be a shaker card and can be for any occasion.'

and Rhi even gave us a fabby clip of vintage Playschool to inspire - and I made this...



...Die cut flowers, behind a bazzill frame. I added acetate behind the frame and then mounted it with foam pads - well actually fun foam with ds tape on both sides as I have run out of foam pads... handy as you can cut to the exact length you need. This meant that I could attach the flowers with brads :)
Paper is Scenic Route and Dream Street...

The other girls have made some fantabulous (strange, blogger says fantabulous is not a word?! lol) cards, they are all on the blog... Once you have checked them all out, have a go yourself!!

Away now to prop eyelids open with matchsticks, the boys decided that 05.00 would be a fun time to get up this morning and I did not go to bed too early last night (actually it was this morning).... Josh was star of the day (again!!) on Tuesday and received his award in Assembly this morning - all very fab but being tired and holding a 2 yr old for over half and hour is not the best..... Thank you Rhi for a really fun dare, I have some ideas for some shaker bits and pieces so may get to work over the weekend...

Fab card - loving those colours Jo.

If you nip into Poundland to grab more foam pads, have a look at the rub-ons they've got at the tick - some of them are a bit naff, but some are lovely. (oppps - must remember to stop trying to make you break your non-spending promise lol!)

Oh, and btw - fantabulous is MOST definitely a word LOL!

What a fab view through the square window! Beautiful design Jo, the flowers look good enough to eat.

I love the window idea. I am the sort of person that likes to muck around doing things like this.
I rely on poundland for all my foam pads!!! The fake blooms aren't up to much at the moment though!

I absolutely love this card. The flowers are so cute and funky and look brilliant through the window!

is 05.00 a real time then?
