Cake Wrapped in Bakers Twine



It's a busy day here at The Open Window with lots
of inspiration from a variety of places!

I am very excited to be a part of this fantastic
two-day blog hop and am so very
blessed to be a designer for both companies!


If you arrived here from the
Market Street Blog
then you are in just the right place!
If not, it's only two stops back to start at
the beginning of this amazing inspirational hop.

There are two really wonderful prizes being given away,
but you have to make your way around to each of the
designers' blogs and leave a little love to be eligible.
More on that shortly....


This is one of my favorite sets from Market Street.
It's called 'Celebrate Cake'.
I have always been fascinated with  cake decorating
and love looking through the British magazines
that specialize in sugar-crafting.
When I was in my 20's, I learned the Wilton Method
of cake decorating and once in awhile, I give it a go.
It's kinda like riding a bike!

Anyway...the beautiful designer paper is from 
Simple Stories and of course, 
my cake is decorated....

 

....with bakers twine from The Twinery.


So let's talk about the great prizes you could
win from both of these companies.


The Twinery is offering...


The Ultimate Color Sampler
{retail value $25}

and

Market Street Stamps is offering...  


So spend some time with the designers
of both companies this weekend.
You'll find wonderful inspiration along the way
and have a chance to win great prizes as well!

Don't forget to share a comment before you leave!

The next stop on the hop is one that will surely inspire you!
It's the very talented
Caroline Stender
