Boo Turtle

Sorry this is going up late! I got SUPER bad pink eye and super bad light sensitivity. I have been in basically a dark room for days and am trying to write this with sunglasses on. haha. I'm quite a sight! 

Anyway, here is my card using the September kit!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit!!! It's awesome. 

The only things not from the kit were the Glossy Accents that I used on the fence, the Stickles (she has the black, but it's not up on the site. Just email her if you would like to purchase it!), the Cricut Cartridge and the Bo Bunny Double Dot paper  - all of which (besides the Cricut Cart) you can get a Shop Pumpkin Spice! :) Just click on the words for the links to the products!

Designer's tip: Don't be afraid to use Stickles. I used the black to outline the hat, his cheeks, and his tummy lines. I used two different colors on the witches hat to create a more shadow effect and add interest. 

Have a beautiful day!!! :)

Shop Pumpkin Spice blog hop and a GIVEAWAY

You should have gotten here from Diana's blog! If not start at the beginning - the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog

This month's kit is SUPER fun! What other kit club do you:
1. Not have to subscribe to
2. Get to pick your own stamp set to go with the kit
3. Get SO much stuff for SUCH an amazing price?!? 

I love this kit. Here is what I made with it:
Designer tip: I stamped the background with spiders and the sentiment and then stretched the black tulle from the kit and adhered it to the back. It gives the card texture and turns plain white card stock into something better!

Of course there is a giveaway because Shop Pumpkin Spice is SO generous! 
It's a referral contest! :) Tell your friends to follow the SPS blog and have them leave a comment letting us know that you sent them! The person with the most referrals will win a $20 to the Shop Pumpkin Spice store!!! Contest will run until September 30th. Winner will be announced on the 5th before the next blog hop! :)

Now continue onto Lezlye's blog - she is our featured designer for September and has done some AWESOME things with this kit!!! Check it out and then head to the Shop Pumpkin Spice store to buy the kit HERE!

Shop Pumpkin Spice Labor Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop!!! You should have gotten here from Saundra's blog. If not, start at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog! There is a giveaway for participating in the challenge!

Today we were challenged with a theme of "Labor Day" or "Back to School"... well I super stretched this one... We got married on Labor Day 2008 which happened to be September 1st that year. So this is our 4 year anniversary! Happy anniversary to the love of my life!! He has made every one of my dreams come true and I hope he can say the same for me. Love you! 

Getting a card done while a baby is sleeping is... challenging... especially when that newborn only sleeps 3 hours during the day.. total. But she slept an unusual amount a few days ago and I was able to get this card done! :) 


I am the last stop on the hop so end at the Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog and join in on the challenge to win an EXCLUSIVE My Pink Stamper stamp set!!! You cannot get it anywhere else!!!
