My October Paper Pumpkin kit came in the mail yesterday. I just love getting these surprise boxes in the mail every month. This month, Stampin' Up! showed support to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by donating a $1 for every new paper pumpkin subscriber. I can't wait to hear how much was donated. It is such a great cause! Unfortunately, my video camera battery died so I wasn't able to do a video for you this month. So, the next best thing - pictures :) This month's kit was called Blissful Bouquet and included 9 cards with envelopes. It came with the new basic grey stampin spot and a cute stamp set which included floral images and sentiments. Here are the 3 cards I made quickly last night.
Starting today, October 19, stamps will be discounted 15 percent off retail. This sale will only be around for a few days - before it ends on Friday, October 23, so don't miss out! This is a great time to purchase stamp sets you have been keeping your eye on!
Happy Wednesday! I just wanted to share a quick post today with the cards I made last Friday night. We created a Thanksgiving card and 2 Christmas cards. Have you ever seen a purple Christmas card? Well I have not but I think I'm in love! What do you think? I have to admit I wasn't sure when I started but by the time I got home, that purple Christmas card was definitely my favorite.
I apologize for the lighting in these pictures but I hope you like them. It has been very gloomy here in Chicago.
If you have not seen the holiday catalog, it is worth a look here.
As always, feel free to email me with any questions you may have.
I have been attending a Stamp Night once a month and am having a blast! I really enjoy making 15 cards/3 designs in 3 hours with a great group of people. One day, I hope to host my own Stamp Night. Until then, I thought I would share our creations. The host comes up with the 3 designs but if you are familiar with the Stampin Up! annual and holiday catalogs, you can easily see where she got her inspiration. I also wanted to mention my new favorite trick - stamping the envelope!

It's hard to see in this picture but those are silver stars.
I'm attending another Stamp Night Friday so I will have more to show next week. Happy Stampin!
