Simply Thinking of You

Welcome back to The Open Window.

I find it hard to believe how quickly the week just
comes .... goes .... and comes around again

It's time for another wonderful color challenge at

What I love about our color challenge is that it's 
always open to interpretation and that includes
our design team and this week, I wasn't sure which
way to go with the suggested colors, but I like my choice.

Such a simple design using papers from My Mind's Eye and
Webster's Pages, an EF from Sizzix 
(one of the newest additions to my collection)
and a beautiful sentiment from The Craft's Meow.

Oh...and some beautiful bling!

I hope you can play along with us this week.
Check out who's sponsoring this week....

and it's a terrific shopping spree for our winner !

I'll see you over in The Cafe !
