Welcome back to the International Blog Highlights for September!

International highlighst banner

Again, I am up for the Challenge and wanted to use the Bamboo Beauty Stamp Set.  As usual, I had to try something a little different.  I had taught the ladies how to do this technique earlier on this year, but I always knew that I wanted to use it with this Bamboo Beauty Stamp Set. To me, this technique was made to use with it.

So what is this Highlights Gallery all about?  Well, there is a gallery full  of amazing cards  and you are able to VOTE for your favourite cards that you would like to see highlighted later on in the month.   The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop.

I would Really Appreciate you taking the time to Vote for me!!  Scroll down below, there is a button where you can click on and see all the participants and you get to vote for 5 projects!!  So 4 plus mine!! You will vote by clicking on the heart.   Hint, hint.......  Thank you, I really do appreciate it!  I will put the vote button right below my picture.  My Card is # 23.

As usual, the theme is THANKS and what better way to say thanks is by sending or giving a card. I do have a video for how to make this card..  In the video, I am showing how I made the mini Slimline card and the partial easel using the Beautiful Blackberry Suite.  Here is my Card.  I will also include the supply list below.
