Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop + MME Lost and Found Sunshine + a Giveaway!!!


Today is our very first hop to introduce the Pumpkin Spice Design Team!!!


You should have gotten here from Lenae's blog. Isn't she darling?!? If not, start at the beginning HERE at the Pumpkin Spice Blog!


Each month there will be a "featured designer" where we are allowed to create a kit! I have created 4 cards to go in the kit that I made. It is called You Are My Sunshine! Why you might ask?.? BECAUSE I am using the BRAND NEW My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Two Sunshine Collection!!! I LOVE this collection! And because I am known for calling up my girlfriends and singing this to their answering machines....


So you can make the four cards that I will be releasing with the kit that I created (and so many more! You will have quite a bit of paper left over!). I will be releasing one card every Wednesday here on my blog and on the Pumpkin Spice blog. But if you hop over to see the kit, then you'll get to see all of them!


Okay, I just saw the pricing on this kit and it is $15!!!! Crazy good! You get ALL of the Sunshine collection papers, 4  8.5x11" white cardstock (for the card bases and cuts), AND the brads, sticker stackers, burlap.... AND there is an add-on where you can get the My Pink Stamper stamps for $15.50 for one or $30 for both of the ones I used - and they are my most used My Pink Stamper stamps!!!! Crazy good! Click HERE to check it out!!!

Small print: Now I did use Cricut Cartridges for all of these and have used a few items outside of the kit, but you can improvise easily to make these work with the stash you have! :)

Without further ado, the first card is a baby card because we always need those! The next three cards will be anniversary, birthday, and thank you themed. Enjoy!


CUTE
*I got my inspiration for this card from Cricut Magazine August 2011 - page 55 - Feeling Under the Weather by Melyssa Connolly*

Recipe:




Here is a sneak peek of all four cards. :) 



Leave a message at each stop on the blog hop as ALL of us have a prize - Pumpkin Spice is giving away a $20 gift card to the store for EACH of us!!!!! CRAZINESS! That's a total of $100 in gift cards!!! THANK YOU Pumpkin Spice!!! You have one week to leave comments and I will pick a winner next Saturday! 


Now you are off to my dear, sweet, lovely, wonderful friend June's blog!
