Chairs and Windows - Looks like Home

The first order of business in this post is to announce who the winner of the Nikki Sivils products is from my blog. It was so wonderful to have so many of you visit on National Scrapbook Day and as usual, I wish I was picking every single person who commented!
The winner is: Amber - Ambrosia Designs
She will be receiving an amazing package of scrapbooking supplies from Nikki Sivils scrapbooker.
The Moxie Fab blog is having a challenge to create something with a chair on it so here is my card.
Nikki Sivils scrapbooker has this cute collection called Victoria's Street and it has chairs in it, how perfect is that? That top little border is cut from the patterned paper that has pillows all over it.
The chair, lamp and pillow are cut from one of the patterned papers and the stamp is from the Nikki Sivils Victoria's Street stamp set.
And I wanted to share my Card Positioning Systems card for this week. Taylored Expressions is our sponsor and the stamp set I used has this adorable window in it.
Notice this totally amazing wood grain cardstock for the card base? That is new from Core'dinations and Cosmo Cricket. All it took was a little sanding to expose that great wood grain embossed design.
And a couple photos. I stopped by one of our beaches this last week. I thought these two photos were kinda fun. They are from the same spot but one focuses on the wood fence and one focuses on the water. I loved the contrast in the two looks.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

I have a weakness for photos of chairs and doors. Don't know why, but I do, so I just love that window stamp. How cool to make my own window designs.
