Celebrate with The Craft's Meow!

Happy Monday and welcome in to The Open Window !

If you are just stopping by, you picked a great day
because it's Day #2 of the New Release Previews over at

We are on the countdown to TCM's 2nd Birthday Celebration
and release of our March images !

Today's preview is of a 'sweet'
{ I couldn't resist }
new stamp set designed by Mabelle R-O called
'Sweet Birthday'

I immediately knew I wanted to use fun, bright colors for my card
and the balloon in this set was so fun to play with.
I did a little simple 'masking' to make my bouquet using vibrant
ink from A Muse Studio (to order, see link below)
and stamped the sweet daisy on each balloon.
Prima's Doodle Deux made the perfect backdrop for the colors.

The sweet little double bow was made using yummy baker's twine
from The Twinery in 'Ocean' & the 
brand spankin' new 'Iridescent Blossom'

What I love about this set is there are so many fun & surprising elements
you can play with, right down to the little 'swirlys'.

To celebrate this week, TCM will be giving away not one but . . .

crossed that you'll be a winner !
