Happy September to you!!  Is it not amazing the summer is gone and school has started?  I really don't know where the time went!  I am excited for this fall however...for me it brings a new beginning.  I start this month as a "Stamp Tramp" for Skipping Stones Design .  I am more than excited to begin this new venture of being on a design team.  The team of gals I have the honor to work with are so very talented!  I can't wait to begin.

I will begin my post today with the introduction to this stamp set that SSD just released called "Always Here".

This is a beautiful set with endless possibilities. For more information about this set click here

Also this week on SSD is Maren Benedicts last weekly sketch.  Her sketches have been so much fun to follow. This is the sketch for this week.  Please feel free to hop over to the SSD website and join the challenge! 

This is my take on the sketch created very quickly after work tonight.  I stamped the butterflies on vellum and then flipped them over and used a stylus on the back.  This turned the butterflies white where I used the stylus, and gave them dimension.  I then cut them out and spritzed them with vanilla smooch to glitz them up a bit.  Sorry the pic does not pick that up...I am practicing with my camera, just didn't have much time tonight!  The CS I used was white and black Bazill bling...very shimmery and pretty!  Hope you like!  I need to get some sleep as I was told our work day tomorrow at the surgery center will be from dawn to dusk.  I would so rather be stampin! LOL!
