September Blog Hop!!!!

I think maybe fall has arrived or at least the cool, brisk mornings have gotten here. I think I will miss summer. It seems like it went by SO fast!! I know I feel like my life has blown by here recently (which kind of explains my blog absence!). I have to share that this week I was honored to celebrate my Grandaddy's 96th birthday with him!!

Anyway, on to the wonderful blog hop!! You should have found me after visiting Veronica's blog. I hope you are enjoying your hopping!!!

Don't forget to leave a comment on my blog - I will be giving away some blog candy!!! The winner will be chosen at random on Friday, 09/16. All comments must be made prior midnight CST on Thursday, 09/15.

I actually have four cards to share with you today. Let me know what you think! All card ingredients will be listed at the end of the post.

The first card is very simple and has mutliple uses.



I made the mistake yesterday of shopping at Walmart after I got off work. By the time I made it home, I was ready for a martini!!!



The third card is essentially a variation on the first one I showed you. I was having fun using that stamp set!



My last card is done from a stamp set that I adored from the minute I saw it in the calendar. This idea came about just while playing around with my stamps and ink.



I hope you enjoyed what I had to share with you. Now, keep hopping. If you have lost your way, here is a complete listing of all who are participating in our blog hop starting at the beginning:

You've been busy! Just because is my favorite stamp set--I love all the images and love what you've done with them. All of your cards are great and I love the pops on color on the last one.

Each one is great. Blah blah blah just might be THE phrase of the decade!
