Windows to the World Challenge #343 Week Two

 Hello Ai fans!

Welcome to week two of our Windows to the World Challenge.

That means you have one more week to create a handmade project with a window on it.
(see rules at bottom of post)

Last week Janet (Sugarshine Designs) was our featured artist and she put together a wonderful tutorial showing you how to use the 5408-ShadowBox Window Die Set.
You can view that HERE.

This week she has a second card for you using the M4691 – With Love Window

Now we have the cards from the rest of the Design Team.

Sharon used M4588 – Pleasures window5408 – ShadowBox Window Die4900 – Reel Great Guys Set  and two Freebie stamps.

Reneé used the same 5408 – ShadowBox Window Die, along with M4586 – Memories Window and several pieces from the 5543 – Journal Template Die Set.

Reneé also made a 5512 – Front Porch Door Set and added elements from 5490 – Front Porch Farm House Set.

Tasha used 4619 – Window Die along with 5349 – Koalas Set
Her sweet sentiment is from 5136 – WC Sentiment Set 2.

Nina's card featured a window die from the 5543 – Journal Template Die Set combined with 5458 – Llama Set.

Mercy shared some more pages from her Freebie Journal.
She used the journal cover, pages, windows, mattes and borders from the 5543 – Journal Template Die Set along with several Freebie animals.

Lynn is wrapping things up with an affectionate window card for a valued co-worker.

She creates amazing tutorials to help you learn how to recreate her beautiful cards. You can view this tutorial here.  I recently called Lynn the Queen of video tutorials and someone said... Nope, there is only one queen...Bonnie.  I'm 1010% sure if you asked Bonnie, she'd say Lynn reigns supreme for marker tutorials.  I don't think Bonnie has ever even done a marker tutorial.  She is OF COURSE, the ultimate Queen Bee.  None of us would be here without her,  but there are queens all around on our two design teams.  Some are the queen of cute, soft colors, bold colors, bows, backgrounds, combining sets, fantasy, new techniques, interactive cards ... every member of Ai's two teams is a queen and don't say they aren't!  Bonnie agrees and tells me CONSTANTLY how much she appreciates them all. 

Now for the new challenge rules.
Though our challenge is called Windows to the World you don't need to use one of the WTTW stamp sets.  Maybe you have a window die?  A car or truck with a window or a porch stamp with a window. A lighthouse or cottage... Any window will do!
