So Blessed ~ 4 Years of Blogging



Happy Monday and the beginning of a great week here
at The Open Window.

I am celebrating FOUR YEARS of blogging
(my first post was June 14, 2009)
and the sentiment on today's card says it all.
In so many ways, it seems like just yesterday
I posted my first thoughts & photos.

I've also been blessed to work with some pretty
aMAZing companies along the way.

Today....I come to you representing one of
my very favorites !


It is
NEW RELEASE PREVIEWS WEEK
at



Let's get things started here with a gorgeous set called
'Beautiful Rose'
illustrated by Nina B Designs


 I recently picked up a batch of new 6x6 pads on an Archivers
shopping trip and couldn't wait to start using them.  Most of the paper
on this card feature 'Down by the Shore' from Fancy Pants Design.
The rose was cut from Authentique's 'Pride' collection.
Although there are a few elements on this card by way of punched
borders using Fiskars Apron Lace ( great go-to punch),
a hand-cut flag & baker's twine in Canteloupe & Denim from The Twinery,
it still goes back to that 'Beautiful Rose'


How would you like a chance to win this set ?
All you have to do is stop by the TCM blog and leave a note
to say you stopped by for a visit.
Each day of the previews will bring another set up for grabs.
You have until 8pm PST, tonight to comment to be eligible.


I've also had the pleasure of working for
aNOTHer aMAZing company
for the past
3 years and wanted to let you know that there is a
TERRIFIC CHALLENGE
going on right now over there . . .


Whether you use a 'little' or a 'lot', 
as long as you use baker's twine on your project
YOU CAN ENTER!

I sure hope you'll leave a little note here as well.
