NO August Secret Sister Swap


i'm sure everyone needs a break from the Secret Sister Swap as summer comes to an end.  i definitely do!  for the month of August, we will NOT have a swap.

take the time to get your kiddies ready for school, rest up, clean out your craft spaces (Christmas is around the corner).

we will continue the swap with September.  Please look out for that post. 

Thank you for all the participation!!!  you deserve a little break!!!  Hugs!

Happy 1st Birthday Sister Stamps!!!

It's release day and we are celebrating a VERY special day!  Happy 1st Birthday Sister Stamps!!!!  Yipppeeeeee!!!!!!!!!
One year ago Sister Stamps released their very first set of rubber stamps...  and today, on their 1st Birthday, they are releasing new additions to the ever growing CUTE asian images!!  Release #8!!!! 

So how did you like the hop leading up to this BIG release?!?!  any faves or MUST you have them all??  i just know you all have been hopping with LOTS of inspiration!

Happy 1st Birthday Sister Stamps!!!  a gigantic CONGRATS to Jenny and Denise for the dedication they've given to us crazy crafters!!!

Hope you've enjoyed my creations the past few days...  these images are super fun to work with and i LOVED every moment of it!  it is release day and we are continuing the party for all you fans and lovers of Sister Stamps!  So like previous days, you should have come to my blog from Donna's blog...  if not, go back to the beginning of the party train, Sister Stamps blog, and begin dancing there.... 

i've got 3 cards to share with you in celebration...  although i do have a fave from this release, i want you to revisit all of them because let's admit, they are totally FABULOUS!
 Miyoko is up first sharing some sweetness with you....  yes, she is my fave...  i think she has a weakness for cuppy cakes like me...  hehehehe!  hmmm, i could use one right now...  ;)  i'm happy i saved these papers because they go great with her...  it's an extra hit of sweetness... 
Next is Mariko...  she loves giving surprises!!  and presents are always her treat!  not my normal color combo but i have to say, i'm really enjoying this mix...  Mariko really stands out....
Takeo!!!  the life of the party!  he truly knows how to have fun....  and as long as he's got a bunch of balloons, he is happy as ever!!  now that's my kind of partying... 

Now that you've gotten a burst of colors from me, go and check out Linda's blog for more party fun!!  Don't forget that Debi has some goodies to share and Sister Stamps is celebrating with more treats too! 

Thank you so much for hopping here this week and i really hope you've enjoyed seeing my creations...  even hoping that it sparked some inspiration for your next project....  THANK YOU to Jenny and Denise for having me on this celebration blog hop!!  it was SO much fun!!  Best wishes for new and upcoming adventures (and releases)!  can't wait to see more!!!  and THANK YOU to the crafty girls in participation, for allowing me to be apart of an AWESOME team!!  Happy 1st Birthday Sister Stamps!!
