Missing in Action...The Play Date Cafe Challenge

First....let me say thank you for bearing with me
through a week-long absence from The Open Window.
Late last Friday evening, I was awakened in the
middle of the night with, what turned out to be,
a horrible flu virus that kept me in bed for nearly
5 days.  I am slowly getting myself back to
the land of the living, but am taking it really slow.

In the meantime, I have had some very messy
computer problems to boot, so all in all, not a great
start to the week.

The good news is....there is a new challenge over at
The Play Date Cafe!

Can I just say....


The girls have come up with some very clever ways to
do this month's 'Color Splash' which is black, white
and a 'bit' of orange.
My dear friend (and partner in crime) Sarah
made sure the post was complete over in The Cafe.

We are also THRILLED to have Kelly Marie of
as our Guest Designer and Sponsor
for this week's challenge.

So, although I am no longer contagious,
I'd still rather you head on over to 
and check out this week's challenge and better yet,

Ugh!! Sounds awful... 5 days and counting! Hope you're feeling wonderful again soon. I've heard that a few days of crafting is actually very beneficial for those recovering from the flu... speeds up recovery like nuthin' else can! ;)
