Are you implying that I have big feet?

You will do a wonderful job Kathy. You have done a great job when filling in for me in the past. Remember, you can make it your own and modify it however you wish.

I really wanted to participate this month.

So, I managed to get one of the sketches done;

It is the first one of the choices:

Purple Thinking of You Card By KatieJo

I also did what I hope I can count as a favorite... a one sheet wonder technique. It is just a quick way to get several cards done with one inspiration sheet of patterned paper. I found the idea on Pintrest and borrowed most of her ideas to get to started at least. The link to the inspiration is this: http://mutchtostamp.blogspot.com/2007/03/one-sheet-won d...

Thank you for the birthday wishes. We went to San Antonio for a 4 day weekend this past weekend. I got to pick what we did and where we ate. Although, we did start and end the weekend with bbq. DH has set out to try all 50 of the top bbq restaurants in Texas.

just 3 days left in August to get any last minute cards finished for this month's challenge. I can't believe how fast this year is going. Can you believe Christmas is 4 months away!!

I should have September's Card Challenge posted on Sunday. Hope you will come play next month as Karen is taking a break and I will be taking over. THANK YOU Karen for hosting since March 2013!! You have been a wonderful hostess and pushed me out of my comfort zone many many times. Hope you will come play with us when you have time....still would love to see your wonderful stamping as you know that is not a strong area for me. Thank you again for hosting this awesome challenge.
