Paper Pumpkin

This month's Paper Pumpkin arrived just in time and was the perfect idea for sharing photos with my friend Sherri.  She and I used to live next door to one another and then she moved, I moved, and life went on.  She contacted me again after about 35 years and what an awesome feeling to see someone you love again after that many years, it was like time stood still (except we both kinda aged!)...

I even made my own box to put the little album in and added one of the new little flowers I made with the new Simply Pressed Clay Molds.  (Coming out in the new 2013-2014 Catalog).

Hope everyone has gotten their Paper Pumpkin for this month, if you haven't signed up yet, please do, it's a new surprise every time!

Happy Stampin'

For All You Do Card

I created this card for the coordinator of our business meetings in San Ramon at the Learning Center.  She is always so cheerful and helps us in any way she can.  She has no idea how much easier she makes my life!

This will give you a "sneak peek" at our new embossing folder Modern Mosaic.  I used the Cherry Cobbler Co'ordinations Paper and sanded it off after it was embossed for the background layer.  The Dress Up Framelit is one of my favorites.  I used some of the new Gingham Garden DSP for the top of the dress, just love the gingham print.  I ran the bottom through the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.  The stand was cut from Natural Composition Specialty DSP.  I used some of the Silver Glimmer Paper and ran it through my Big Shot with a Labels Collection Framelit.  I colored one of the little roses with the Regal Rose Stampin' Write Marker.  I added some pearls for the buttons and necklace.  The belt is Melon Mambo Striped Organdy Ribbon. The card base is Regal Rose.She fell in love with my card, I think she liked it more than the real miniature rose plant we got her...
