Happy Hump Day! I know that you might be wondering….where in the heck did that super FUN gold FUN come from…..YEP ~ it is from February’s Paper Pumpkin Kit! I have shared with you before that it is so much fun to play with the products in the kit and think of it in another way….like I did today!

I knew that this would make a great masculine card and from the minute that I saw the FUN in the kit….YEP  – I was going to use it in a different way! Today’s card is a 4 1/4″ Square Card (and that in itself is FUN) and then a 1/4″ smaller with the Rich Razzleberry and then the Botanical Gardens DSP (I love this print….very stately!)




The real FUN is the “cheers sentiment” that has been back~burner-ed for a bit….poor thinlit – it is all the way in the back of the catalog but it is a keeper and being paired up with the Vanilla Coaster Board….it is like PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY!!!

This is a product that I think is very overlooked in our catalog and I highly suggest that you keep some handy as it really does come into handy and quite effective! I cut (2) of them out and then used “green glue” to adhere them together!






I have been having a bunch of fun with this stamp set, Greatest Greetings ~ the font is fabulous and the sentiments are fun and fresh. I simply used a piece of scraps to stamp the sentiment on and then banner cut them.




Here is a breakdown that will help you see the products that I used to make this fun card. For those of you that are subscribers to Paper Pumpkin…this refill is available and YEP…I have already purchased some! Please do not forget that a 3 Month Subscription is on sale for $55.00 which will let you earn a FREEBIE from the Sale-a-bration item!!!




Clean, classic and fun – I thing that this card is going to make my special friend smile! After all, that is what we want….to share a message, a feeling, a warmth of kindness and then comes the SMILE… does not get better than that!





Do you remember that I shared with you that I was going Pensacola on Monday? Well….Hannah and I did that and had a blast….it was wonderful to see my brother and see his new home….but during that visit…he encouraged us to go to New Orleans ~ and guess what  – that is what we did…..Hannah was up super early yesterday…..rode 4 horses ~ came home and showered and off to New Orleans we went!

I was AMAZED that it is only an hour away ( SILLY SUSAN ), when we are at the show…we are in our little bubble but I must say…it has been FUN to make some day trips!!!! We had a BLAST…WOW ~ what a country bumpkin I felt…it was super easy to get to and it was super fun!

I thank you for popping in and also hanging in there with me while I am away,,,,it is a juggling act to fit a blog post in…..but that is what is wonderful about Stampin Up! We can make if work for out lifestyles….Until tomorrow!
