Calm & Serene...and a DESIGN TEAM CALL

Did you survive Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
I love Thanksgiving but I must say that I feel sorry
for those who have to be
to work at 3am for the feeding frenzy.
Wouldn't make for a very relaxing day.

So now that a new week has begun,
I thought I would share a project that has
a more peaceful and serene setting.
I think, at last count, there were 10 layers
to make this a very, dimensional greeting.
The die cuts are from My Mind's Eye
and the snowflakes are from Martha Stewart.

It has definitely been a busy time for me here at  
The Open Window.
My Etsy shop has been busy with special orders and so I am doing
my best to get it re-stocked with new things for the holidays.
I will be listing this card as soon as I can, so if you would like it, as it will not be duplicated,
then head on over and make your purchase.

DeSiGn TeAm CaLL......
There is always something new going on and
now we are looking for some new designers with a vintage edge.
Are you a vintage girl or guy?
If so, then we want to hear from you!
We are looking for designers who would like to participate
in a brand new challenge
beginning in January 2010 which  
focuses on a style reflecting pre-1975.
Call it it retro...are we calling YOU?!?

Here is all you need to do:
Send me an email with your name and blog link.
If you would like, you can send up to 3 JPEG files
of favorite projects
you have done which reflect your vintage-style.
Send a list of any online galleries you participate in
such as Splitcoast, Graphic45, The Play Date Cafe, etc.
and please let us know if you have been or are
currently on any other design teams.
We are asking a 6 month commitment to the team
contributing one project per week
with possible hosting once per month.
Deadline for design team submissions is Sunday, Dec 20th.
We welcome designers from all over the world!

See you tomorrow.....

How absolutely beautiful! Bird silhouettes are a favourite design motif of mine, too, and I'm head-over-heels for this endearingly gorgeous creation.

Wishing you a splendid Tuesday & month of December!
