This is for today's color challenge as well as a little Double Dog Dare Challenge that I participate in with a couple of crazy stampers..

I used crystal effect on the window panes and popped up the hearts and pink fowers.Thanks for looking!

Now, yesterday if you had looked through my window you may have seen this unfortunate fellow... I found out AFTER I killed it with a stick (that's right I'm a superhero) that is is just an ole cornsnake and quite useful - sorry.. It would have lived if only it had told me before I bashed it with my stick.. and maybe had it not hissed at me and tried to strike me! The kids found it while they were playing in the yard - OMGoodness!!! Needless to say, Andrew is now afraid of the yard... which isn't such a bad thing since he is a fearless 3 yo boy with and adventuresome spirit who loves to explore. I suppose this guy came up from the creek to eat some cat food as he was pretty close to the garage where we keep the food. ooo.. now I have the *shivers*. After I killed the beast, I let the kids touch it and gave them a mini-science lesson on the parts of a snake...

Well, goodness you just never know what skills will be required of you on a daily basis!

That is a pretty large snake - I think I'd have been very nervous too.

Love your cute window card - great color choices and love the popped up flowers! so sweet!

Oh my goodness that snake is so long and big! I would not want to step outside and see it I would totally freak out and Griffin would not be going outside.

I might grab the gun instead of the stick but we are from Montana so you know that is how we roll....LOL

WOW!!!!!POOR little snake; but I'm glad you made a good point to the kids, not to bother these slimmy , slithery, unpredictable little serpents,; but to tell MOMMY so she can, (not get the gun) but take the hoe and chop it's head OFF and chunk it down the creek!!!!HOW bout that?
Oh, I just loved your window card, too........MOM---is chopping more or less violent than shooting???? oh, well, whatever!!!!!
