ODBDSLC262 Dolphin Window

It has a been a very busy few months for me! There have been lots of preserving of food from the garden and many outdoor jobs getting finished up before cold weather hits! I just finished up preserving three bushels of apples. From that, I was able to can seventy one jars of apple products. I canned apple syrup, apple butter, apple pie preserves, apple pie filling and cinnamon apples. I also dried some of the apples for making fried apple pies and cinnamon apple oatmeal! Needless to say, I am tired of looking at apples but I'll sure be glad I have them come the dark days of winter.
Amidst all of the work, we snuck in a few days of camping too! You can read about that here.
 Now let's get on to the task at hand, it's card sketch challenge day at ODBD.
 Today I have a rustic masculine card for you! Nothing too fancy or difficult so I won't bore you with the details. If you should have any questions, feel free to ask. I'm always happy to help you out!

What an awesome masculine take on the sketch with all the distressing, texture, and kraft!! Love the dolphins through the window. Beautiful take on the sketch my friend!

Beautiful card. What a great idea to use the front panel as a window. But I'm really more interested in all those apples! I love apple butter - wish I lived near you. :)

Wonderful masculine card! Love the wood grain embossing on your window, the twine and manly colors and papers!
It must be nice having all those yummy apple products canned and ready for winter! I love the thought of some of those things you mentioned...sounds so good!

What a fabulous take on the sketch this week- love your textured window with the sweet dolphins along with all of your other fabulous textures and details!! What a busy time you have had with all of the canning but as you mentioned, you will be able to reap the rewards later this winter :-) Hugs and have a blessed week (and possibly some rest)!

What a beautiful card, Paula, and I just love the texture and wonderful scene with the dolphins. How wonderful that you've been busy storing up for the winter. I remember the days when my grandmother would can and preserve...brings back precious memories! Hugs, sweet friend!
