The Twinery Has Gone Sweet 'n Sassy



It's blog hop time once again at The Open Window.

has teamed up with
   
If you've arrived here from the Sweet 'n Sassy Blog
you are in the right spot.
If not, just pop back to The Twinery blog where it
all gets started and enjoy the hop!
There are some great prizes to be won, so you won't want
to miss out on any of the fabulous inspiration
from the designers of both teams.


 

I really enjoyed working with the 'Forest Silhouettes'
from SNSS.  Masculine-style cards are sometimes
hard to design, but this set made it so easy!
My 'wallpaper' background is a mix of
Authentique's 'Free Bird' Collection and of course,
this card would not be complete without a few
baker's twine accents.
I mixed Denim, Honeydew & Cappuccino to match
the colors in the paper.

Both companies are giving away fantastic prizes...
From The Twinery...


 and from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps...


Just make sure you visit each blog on the hop,
leave a comment and do so by midnight EST
on Saturday, Oct 22nd.
The winners will be announced on Sunday, Oct 23rd.

Your next stop on the hop is the very talented
