Cute Card Thursday - AT the office!

Wow, can't believe it is September already, the summer went by so fast! 
I have been AWOL for so long! Not created anything at all!  I am feeling a little rusty in my attempt to get back into it!  It may take a while for my mojo to catch up!
We took our first trip back to the UK last month visiting the North of England and Scotland with a short stayover in Paris which was very exciting! Plenty of photos to get scrapping!  
first I must share with you my first creation in some time!  This is for Cute Card Thursday, the theme this week being at the office! (use office supplies)
for mine I used staples, paperclip, twine and notepad
We are sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp.
I decided to create a bookmark to send to my daughter who has just gone off to college.  Actually that is the other reason I was still AWOL, getting her sorted and then we took her up to New York to get her settled in.   It is taking a little while getting used to her not being home!
Yesterday I went out for some retail therapy and just had to get myself these.......

 Pumpkin spiced latte and pumpkin muffin from Starbucks, yum, my favourite part of September!
 and talking of pumpkins, look how they have grown over the summer!  I hope they ripen in time!  
My other success has been my jalopenos!  Perfect!
Thanks so much for dropping by, hope to be back much sooner next time!
Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous bookmark! Love it. Must be hard when the kinds leave home. Fortunately mine are only 4 and 6 so I dont have to worry about that for a couple of years.

Hugs Kim

So nice to see you back!!! Looks like success in the garden, way to go! We have some green pumpkins as well, they volunteered! I guess that is what happens when you "compost" the Halloween pumpkins in your garden, lol! Anyhow, we too are hoping they will ripen in time!
Fab bookmark for your daughter, I'm sure she loved it. Great challenge too, maybe I can play along!
