long overdue...

for a new post!! Sorry I've been MIA. In addition to returning to work in mid- August following a 4 month maternity leave... my daughter started Young 5's and I've been busy with my first big month with CTMH since before the baby was born!! It's been super crazy- but I love it :)

I mentioned way back on Sept. 1st that I had more Sept. stamp of the month artwork to show so I figured I'd better post than now before it's time for October! I'm going to attempt to pre-schedule some posts for the week- I have a LOT to show you!

For today- a cute layout of my Addie and a fun thank you card- made with the same stamp set- Treasures- available only through the end of September! Click here to see how to purchase it- or even earn it FREE!

I thought the stamp set was perfect for the cute photo of Addie blowing the dandelion seeds all over my yard!! She thought it was the prettiest flower :) Unfortunately I had twice as many dandelions this past spring. {Supplies- all by Close To My Heart: Cardstock: Chocolate, Bamboo, Sweet Leaf, Crystal Blue Pattern Paper: Sweet Home Level 2 paper pack Stamp Pads: Chocolate, Bamboo, Crystal Blute, White Daisy Embellishments: Chipboard buckle (sponged with Bamboo and name stamped in Crystal Blue), Cocoa Grosgrain ribbon, clear sparkles and rhinestone circle (from the Connections Club gift during Summer '09)}

Some close ups:

Here's the card I mentioned:
The picture is a little dark- sorry about that! The paper is Garnet- the patterned paper is from the National Stamping Month Celebration card kit- see the side bar on the right to learn how to get one for you!! (with a $60 stamp purchase you'll receive a FREE kit! you can order from my website here!)
