Bold & Beautiful

HELLO ! ! !

I'm so glad to be back at The Open Window !

If you're one of my Facebook friends, you may know that
my house has been running rampant with Influenza B.
Paul & I both had the pleasure of having it at the very
same time, so for the past couple weeks, it has
been quite the time here.
We are both feeling much better, but it has knocked
us for a loop and we've been slow to do ANYthing !

I am so happy to be here to share this week's challenge
over at

This week's colors are . . .

Hot Pink...Shadow...Lightning Yellow 

Each of our designers is featuring stamps from our sponsor
CAS-ual Fridays and I was really inspired to use the set
'Truth Is' with these colors.
I simply took my inkpad 'direct to paper', then stamped
each image on top.

I first saw this technique done by UK designer
Paula Whittaker, back when I first began my blog.
You can see my very first card using this technique
by clicking HERE
{it's from one of my favorite projects of 2009}

 I hope you will play along with us over in The Cafe.
The colors are vibrant & fun and our sponsor is terrific !

Hope you will say hello . . . I'd love to know you came by : )

Project Recipe:

there is nothing great in this, this is ans outsourcing platform which provides the opportunity for projects.
