For my Mother

For The Play Date Cafe Color Challenge

Welcome back to The Open Window !
You know I love being the DT Coordinator over at
and today, we are continuing our
'No Release' Celebration with terrific projects
by our team.  That's right !  We typically have a new release
at this time of the month, but TCM is gearing up for an
amazing new release in May, so we are sharing projects
with various themes this week and along with that,
you can SAVE LOTS OF MONEY because
every stamp set is 21% off !!!

Just enter the code
at checkout to get your discount !

Today's theme is 'Mothers' and with every second I spent
on this card, I thought of my mom.
Just a few short weeks ago, she was diagnosed with lung cancer
and it's been a sad, but hopeful time.
The feature set I've used from TCM is called 'Hope Blooms'
How inspired . . .
The sentiment set is called 'Cherished'
Again ... so inspired . . .

I sure hope you will join us this week for lots of inspiration
and of course, you can save 21% on your order.
You have until Sunday, April 21st to use this very RARE DISCOUNT !

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to hearing from you.
