Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 29 – Add a Door or Window

Hello everyone,

I had to think long and hard with this one.  I have a porch on the front of my house with a picture window and when I thought about it I thought it would be nice to recreate my dream front porch.  I so enjoy sitting on the porch on a warm summer evening and looking out into the front garden.

Since this week the blog challenge at Cheery Lynn is to use a Door or Window, this was my perfect opportunity.  I absolutely LOVE the new Cheery Lynn window dies but I must admit, I have struggled with using them.  I was determined to find a way.  I seem to always be inclined to look “outside the box” no pun intended 🙂  although I love their intended purposes.  Another one of my favorite Cheery Lynn Design Dies is the picket fence die.  I have used this die for so many projects in the past and once again it was my “go-to” favorite.  I thought it was perfect to make a garden bench and with a little perseverance I was able to make it work.

I love flowers, arbors and swings (actually, I love anything to do with the garden)  so here is what I was able to come up with:

For this project I used:

Cheery Lynn Window A

Cheery Lynn Victorian Picket Fence

Cheery Lynn Flourish Leaf Strip

Cheery Lynn Cuties 3

Cheery Lynn Princess Tree

Cheery Lynn Exotic Butterfly Small

Cheery Lynn Small Angel Wing

I also wanted to send kudos to the DT for such wonderful inspiration this week.

Thanks so much for popping by.  Hope to see you again soon.
