Hugs ... The Craft's Meow & Want2Scrap Blog Hop


Happy Friday !

It's a great day to visit The Open Window because the
designers over at


are blog hopping with the designers of


Hopefully you made your way her by way of my friend

If not, I'd love for you to start at the beginning of the hop at the
because there are great prizes up for grabs!
The Craft's Meow is giving away 
a stamp set of your choice
and W2S is sharing bling too!

I thought the colors on this card worked really well
for the newest challenge over at The Play Date Cafe too!



Summer is still in bloom and here it is no exception !
I love the bright colors in this paper from Doodlebug Design and thought
it was a great way to showcase the 'Stitched Flowers & Sentiments' from TCM.
And how about those pearls ? !
Gigantic flower centers and the pearl flourish really create
a dimensional design, don't they ?


I'm so glad you popped by and now it's time to send
you on your way over to my talented friend
I know she has some very fun designs to inspire you.

Before I go, I also wanted to let you know that
The Craft's Meow is retiring a variety of stamp
sets & accessories and is having a Summer Sale.  
You can save up to 50% off
and you know what it means when
a set is retired . . . so make sure you visit the
and add what you can to your own stamp collection !

Have a great Friday !
