Cristabel looks out a window

Hello! We're baking here in NJ: not in my kitchen, but outside. Man, is it hot! This morning, before the heat became too unbearable, I spent some time weeding, deadheading and watering in the garden. Then, because I'm just plain ol' crazy, I cleaned all the windows on the bottom floor of our house. My girls helped a little, and I am grateful for that. We have tilt-in windows, the ONLY way to go, as far as I'm concerned! Makes the cleaning job much easier. 

Speaking of windows, how about this paper version?

Looks like our Cristabel, peering outside! I used a Memory Box Madison Window die, and backed it with a plain piece of white cardstock that had been sponged to resemble grass and sky.

See the tiny pawprint inside the card? I always like to stamp something in the card, and then do a matching image on the envelope.

See the resemblance? :-)

Hope you're keeping cool, wherever you are!
