So where did the month of August go ?? I hadn't realized that my last post was in July !! Sorry for the delay in getting here. I was extra busy las month getting ready for my stamping retreat. It is a retreat in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin with 23 of the worlds most wonderful woman. This group was formed little by little and our common thread is stamping. Our 4 days together in August is the best time ever. We laugh, hug, stamp eat, laugh, hug, stamp & eat ..... well, you get the picture. I haven't sorted out my pictures yet, but when I do, I'll post one here.

I did stamp yesterday - although I think my pictures of my cards did turn out that well. Here they are. This is those big paper clips from Walmart. With the help of my CuttleBug and Stampin' Up designer papers, I made these bookmarks. I just love them and they work really well (something I find necessary because I love a cool bookmark in my book) ! :) I'm going to be selling these at a craft fair in November. As soon as I'm clear on the details of the craft fair, I'll post it here.

This card was part of a Virtual Stamp Night challange. In my stamp group someone puts together some layouts and color schemes and we all try to make something. This one is just using pink and brown. The image was from an image swap that I was in. What a fun thing to do - you might want to try it with your stamping friends. You all stamp images and then exchange them. It gives something different to work with along with the fact that everything is already stamped. You just have to color !! :)

Here is another image from the swap. Very fun to do. The stitching on the background paper is faux stitching. Can't compete with Cami and her sewing so I thought I would try this. It is fun ! I chalked all of these images. The cup cake mouse I did with blender pen and this one is just plain chalk. I forgot how fun my chalks could be.

Well, I promise not to wait so long before the next time that I post. I have some fun stuff coming in the mail and I want to share them with you. And of course, Halloween is coming and I have to make some stuff for that too!

I hope you all enjoy your labor day and have a great week !!
