Make a Wish



I'm so glad to have you back here at The Open Window.
It's time for another fabby color challenge over at


Today is a very special day . . .
It's my daughter's 29th birthday.


I can't believe so many years have passed.
She is so beautiful, both inside & out.

Choosing the sentiment for this card was a simple choice!


Because I've been personally busy for the past few weeks, I didn't
devote nearly the time to getting my card done this week as I
would have liked.  I tried photos both indoors & out, but still struggled
to find the right lighting.

Very clean & simple, I used the 'Dandelion Wishes' stamps
and dies from My Favorite Things.
It's very special to know that my long time blogging friend
Mona Pendleton is the illustrator of these beautiful images.

I love the intricate detail of these stamps.

Many thanks to Mona for providing not only the stamps/dies
for this week, but also the most generous prize for our challenge !


You'll find all the details over in The Cafe.

I hope you will play along with us this week!



Project Recipe:
Patterned Paper: Ledger from DCWV
Stamps: Dandelion Wishes by My Favorite Things
Ink: Slate & Latte from A Muse Studio
Tools: Die-Namics Steps & Toppers for Dandelion Wishes
from My Favorite Things
