A lucky little trade!

Have you ever seen an idea and can't let it go?
Do you just have to go out, search and search for that specific item, to you find it?
For the last week I have been on the search for an old window.
Not just any window, it had to be an old wooden window.
While strolling through town the other day, 
I seen an old window used as display in a photo studio.
What a neat idea I thought
and the treasure hunt began!
I mentioned my little mission at work and
I couldn't believe it 
my wonderful co-worker still had an old window 
from an old house in her attic and 
was more then happy to give it to me...
...for FREE!
I hated not to give her something.
So I traded her some of my cards,
 including the one I made this week,
 for the sweet little window.

I love the little crown on the bird, 
a perfect spot to add some rhinestones.
The stamp is "Bird Post" by Stampendous.
Of course I had to wrap the cards up pretty.
I closed the bag with a flower paperclip she can use as a bookmark later.
She loved her cards and baggy
and I adore my old window.
What a lucky little trade!

Thanks for stopping in!
