April Paper Pumpkin kit

Hello Stampers!  I have been super busy this week prepping for my Sale-a-bration Celebration tomorrow!  I'm so excited for it!  I have almost 30 ladies coming!!  I will have pictures later.  Today I wanted to share with you what I did yesterday morning.  Every month, on the last Thursday of the month, I have a meetup at a local Bread Company for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers to bring their kits and work on them.  

Here is what I did yesterday:

April Paper Pumpkin kit This is the April kit, and I think I have to say it is one of my favorites!  As I was doing the watercoloring, I wasn't so sure, but when I added it to the black card bases, they really popped!  Love them!

Would you like to subscribe to this wonderful monthly kit?  It is only $19.95 per month and it is delivered directly to your door.  Every thing you need to complete the kit is provided except for some adhesive.  And you certainly can't beat 12 cards for $20 dollars!!  You just have to sign up by the 10th of the month to receive that month's kit, so be sure to contact me by May 10th!

Silhouette cards

Hello Stampers!  Have I ever told you how much I love to make cards???  I know it is probably pretty obvious, but I do love it!  I take a class once a month where we make papercrafts using our Silhouette machines.  Well this month's cards were so cute!  Want to see them?  Here they are:
