It's a 'Cool...Cool Summer'!



Welcome back to The Open Window !

It's Day #4 and the final day of New Release Previews for


Tomorrow will be the BIG TEAM blog hop and 
all SIX of the fabulous new stamp sets
previewed this past several days will be available for sale.

Today, we have one more set designed by Mabel R-O
called 'Summertime with Fibi & Lilly'
and for the month of July only,
it can be yours with a $50 purchase



We have had nearly two straight weeks of 96+ degree weather
and when I saw this glad with the ice cubes, all I could think
of was ice water with lemon & lime wedges, as that's been
my drink of choice every day.

I layered a variety of textured cardstocks created using
my embossing folders & Bazzill cardstock
and stamped the glass in lemon & lime inks.
The feel of the entire card made me think
70's and the sentiment was a perfect match !
It's difficult to tell from the photo, but I added
Stardust Stickles to make the ice cubes 'sparkle'.


Don't forget . . . this set can be yours when you order $50 or more
from The Craft's Meow when all new releases become available
tomorrow ! ! !

Make sure you pop by
and check out the creative work
from all of the designers.
TCM is giving away a new release set
each day, so make sure you leave a comment
on the blog for a chance to win!

I am so glad you stopped by today.
Tomorrow is the New Release Blog Hop,
so make plans to stop back.
