Happy WCMD & Happy Autumn Too!



Welcome to Julie's Open Window !

I hope you are joining in the celebration of


I have plans to create cards for most of the day today and
hope to be back to share more a bit later.

I'm sharing a couple card created today using stamps
and embellishments from teams I love being a part of.


It's time to celebrate autumn here in Northern Illinois


This first card was created with a lot of paper-piecing and yet I
kept it very clean and simple.
I used stamps from TCM's 'Happy Fall'  'Golden Days'
along with fabby paper from Simple Stories 'Harvest Lane'
{which I received from StopandScrap.com}



Boy, Oh Boy . . . was this guy a hoot to create !


I love autumn scarecrows.  I think it's because my grandmother made me
a life-size couple nearly 20 years ago.  Their names are Alice (my grandma)
and Earl (my grandpa) and I adore them.

I simply stamped this guy from the 'Happy Fall' set and embellished
the heck out of him !  LOL
I colored him with Copic markers, used Stickles for the sparkle
and his 'straw' was created using baker's twine in Ocean & Mandarin
from The Twinery.


This last card is just a reminder project.

If you love to play with color and you love a good challenge,
we'd love to invite you to play with us over at
