Pumpkin Spice is my sponsor and a giveaway!

I am SO excited to finally announce that Pumpkin Spice is sponsoring my blog!!! This is the company that I was telling you about during the hop where I bought My Pink Stamper stamps from. 

I put the same My Pink Stamper stamps in my cart for 5 companies. Hallmark Scrapbook and Custom Crops were two of the bigger ones and they charged about $6 and $8 for shipping respectively. 

I chose Pumpkin Spice because of two reasons: 

  1. The shipping price was $2.78 (I think or it was $2.87)
  2. I called customer service because I needed them pronto to use for my projects and for the give away. I got a call back within 15 minutes! And she went to the post office and shipped them within an hour! 

THAT is amazing and I told her so. Now here we are - a friendship has been born and now a sponsorship!

Today I have a card for you that is for my grandfather's birthday. So Grammy, if you're reading this, don't show it to him! :)

Denine at Pumpkin Spice was SO generous and I am pleased to open this with the Union Square line from My Mind's Eye. While I doubt it's the same one they named the line after, we have a Union Square here in San Francisco and I just LOVED the red glitter paper. I thought it is so versatile from men's cards (like this one) to girls night out cards, polka dots, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and even Halloween -- of course it's a shoe in for Valentine's day as well but that's a little bit far away.

From the My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Union Square™ Line:
Union Square "Favorite" Decorative Brads™
Union Square "Home Sweet Home" Glittered Accessories Sheet™
Union Square "Perfect" Stamps™
Union Square "Favorite" Trims™ - the "ribbon" is linen! I love it! 
Union Square "Favorite" Union Station Paper™
Union Square "Favorite" Birds of a Feather Paper™
Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg Collection - Acorn Paper™
Embossing: A2 Seeing Spots Emboss Folder™
Glossy Accents (on the crown)
Red Stickles by Studio G (on the crown)
Pop Dots
Corner Rounder

Denine (owner of Pumpkin Spice) has also generously put this all in a Court's Crafts Collection Kit! So you can everything you need to make it here! How cool is that! 

And if that wasn't great enough, she sent me some goodies to send to you! Leave a comment on this post telling me how many items for sale there are under the section listed "Blackbird" under "My Mind's Eye - Halloween Collections and what your favorite paper is from there. I will randomly choose a winner on Friday to win the Cosmo Cricket Matilda mini deck sponsored by Pumpkin Spice

You will have until Thursday at midnight PST to leave a comment. Winner will have 48 hours to contact me because I am leaving for Europe! So become a follower if you don't want to miss it and if you like my work!

You are so right. Shipping is a big amount of my checkout and I usually buy from the shops that have the lowest shipping rates.
Love My Mind's Eye and my faveorite of the 14 items on sale is the Argyle Paper.
By the way, love your kit. It has some really greta items. Wondering what's with that pointing hand taht I see everywhere including in the Lost and Found stamp set. How about using that for a challenge ?
