Thankful for You

Here we are at the's Day #5
of New Release Previews for

We are finishing off our new release
sneak peeks with the whimsical new
stamp set called 'Fall Fun'
Although this set has a fall theme,
I chose to use the variations in this set
to bring you something completely not fall...
What I love about the stamps from TCM is how
versatile they are.  When you see this complete set,
you'll see exactly what I mean.
I paper-pieced once again...have been doing a lot
of that this week.  This set really lends itself to
that especially as I am not the best when it comes
to coloring.  I did color in the grass : ))
I used Echo Park's Dots & Stripes
(which is also available from TCM) for the
birds, flower and the clouds.
Again, I used my fave die from Lil' Inker Designs.
I am 'virtually' sending this card to
all of you
who continue to visit The Open Window
and encourage me each day to keep creating.
Make sure you visit The Craft's Meow blog
and check out the rest of the design team's
projects.  You will get a real taste for this set
by the time it is released on Saturday! 

You can also win a set, 
so make sure to leave
a comment before you leave.  
TCM will be drawing a name 
each day
and you never know 
it could be YOURS!
