Happy September!

Wow, it's already the first of September--hard to believe! I'm already in the mood for Fall and I have more than 1 treat to share tonight.
First, these fun caramel apple cards I came up with. Just a simple 2 piece pattern, some good sponging, a few popcicle sticks (who doesn't have them leftover from the summer popcicle cards?!), little raffia tied greetings and done! Cute and easy--final card measures about 2 3/4" tall x 3 1/4" wide. I can't figure out how to make the pattern available from here, so if you are interested, please email me and I'll send it to you personally. linseyp2@msn.com
other supplies include: red, green and caramel/tan colored card stocks-popcicle sticks-double sided red sticky tape to adhere sticks-real red, certainly celery and creamy caramel SU! inks and daubers to sponge-stickles/glitter, optional

Now, for the even sweeter news......Miss Cyndi Bundy, aka: TarheelStamper is the September Guest Designer for Unity Stamps! She is such a wonderfully talented gal with an equally amazing personality and is constantly inspiring me and so many others out there! I can't wait to see what Cyndi has planned for Unity this month--it is certain to be spectacular!!! Cyndi's BLOG is chocked full of inspiration, too, so make sure to visit her there and on the SplitCoastStampers Unity Forum and for Hip Hop Thursday this week and for the entire month!
And more from my super duper sweet friend, CAROLINA--she awarded me with this I {heart} your blog award 2 weeks ago and you know how I've been--so I'm just getting to posting it, but I haven't forgotten how amazing and wonderfully kind and thoughtful my sweet Carolina is!
Thank you so much for not forgetting me, even though I haven't been blog hopping like I should--I'm inspired to be a better blogger and I will award 7 people with this award first thing tomorrow morning.
