a birthday wand. what?!? | It's a Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop

Well, hello new and old friends!

Just when I thought I was getting tired of Paper Pumpkin they came out with donuts... and now this month's kit is absolutely stunning... maybe, I mean "really cool" - not stunning. Stunning is more for like glitz and glamour, don't you think?  Words are funny, aren't they?

When I took out the items in the kit my jaw was dropping.  Two rolls of delicious washi tape and cut out card bases with stitching (gasp!).  More water color wash card bases and wood veneers...

Just. Well. See it for yourself.

I am so excited to be part of this It's a Pumpkin Thing Blog hop each month.  These ladies blow me away with their alternate ideas and I know this month will be no exception...

.. although we all know the truth is that it's hard to stray from these gorgeous cards this month!

Once I created a couple of the suggested cards, I went off in my own direction by creating a couple different cards and a fun birthday wand.... Birthday wand?  I totally just made that up.  Last month I created a birthday wand to stick in my daughter's vase of skittles for her birthday party.... (OK, I'll do the birthday post soon... just not today!)

Wow.  I really have a theme of "words" on this hop.

I know what you are thinking... Cathy has lost her mind... Errr... I need this kit.
Yes. You. Do.
Just order the monthly kits. (Oh, you did before and didn't like them? Well, guess what? They are improving becasue Stampin' Up! heard us...) Blah, blah - contact me and I'll hook you up. If you are in Canada, that is.

Next up is one of my new friends, Andrea - she's quite the card and well, I like her because she's real life.  I like real life.  Real Life + Pretty Things + Ink + Paper = Awesome. Now who ever said I wasn't good at math... (no one. I am an accountant. Piff)

  17. Every interaction you have is a chance to learn something. One of the recent ways I've learned this is through watching Ted Talks. What I love about these short speeches is that you can learn so much about subjects you thought you'd have no interest in here . But by keeping an open mind, you discover patterns in how people present their talks that you can learn from. It just shows you that no matter whom you meet, there is always something valuable to learn from the encounter.
