How Sweet it is at CAS-ual Fridays

For the Sweet Stamp Shop
Blog Hop...Click Here!

It's a new day and a new challenge over at

This week, the challenge is to make
Clean and Simple
I LoVe anything miniature!
I toyed with the idea of making gift tags,
but I couldn't resist picking up this beautiful
stamp from Layers of Color.

I received this beautiful set of stamps as
a gift from my friend Nina Brackett
and it's simply....gorgeous.

The challenge calls for cards 4" x 4" or smaller.
I 'adjusted' and sort of split the difference so I
could fit this beautiful image on to the card,
so mine measures 4 1/4" x 3 3/4".

This card reminds me of the bees that make
their way in to each bloom of the flowers on
my patio.  As summer draws to a close
(and for the past 2 nights, the pots have come in due to frost advisories)
I will miss the days of watching nature do
what it's supposed to do.
We are very happy to welcome another
new sponsor to the Break Room at

I hope you'll come fellow
'Girl Fridays' have created quite a gallery
of inspiration for you.

Thanks for stopping by...and thank you
in advance for leaving a little love
here at The Open Window...from my heart to yours!
