Papertrey Blog Hop - September 25

I don't now about you, but I can't believe that it is already time for another Papertrey Blog Hop and that it is the September hop!  Here we are already in the fourth day of fall.  I love the fall but I love summer too and I don't know if I am quite ready to say goodbye.

The fundraiser last week was a tremendous success.  I have been to New York for my procedure and all went well.  Now that it is over I have 60 thanks you cards to get out to friends and family for their incredible support. I am on the lookout for some great ideas to mass produce thank you cards so pop in again this week to see my new post. I am super excited to be back into my studio again.  What a better way to get started than with a Blog Hop.  Nichole has given us the following inspiration photo for September.




Here is what I have put together.


All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Smokey Shadow, Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz
Patterened Cardstock:  Hawaiian Shores (Damask Designs)
Clear Stamps: Think Big Favourites #2
Dies: Half & Half
Ink: Black (Memento)

Thanks for looking.
