Paper Pumpkin Alternative-June 2016

StampinUp Birthday card made with the Paper Pumpkin June 2016 kit as an Alternative card, designed by demo Beth McCullough. Please see more card and gift ideas at #StampingMom

Many of you signed up to get the $5 Paper Pumpkin in June.  I hope you love it!  I’m making cards out of most of my Paper Pumpkin kit.  I’d love to give you some ideas or you can come to the free class for my Paper Pumpkin subscribers on Thursday at 9:30am or 6:30pm.

This is my favorite card so far.  What do you think?  The Happy Birthday is gold embossed.  I think embossing makes any card look fancy!

You might have wondered where I’ve been again?  Our good friends Debbie and John Gorman were here visiting for four nights from Alabama.  We had a wonderful time, but I don’t think I stamped anything while they were here.  Not their fault, however, I did do some gardening and Superman and I went on a long bike ride.  I’m doing a couple days of RAGBRAI, so I need to get some practice in on my bike.  Do you know about RAGBRAI?  It’s a seven day bike ride across the state of Iowa.  Anyone who thinks Iowa is flat, has never been on RAGBRAI!  Between my trips and company I need to get my stamping mojo back.


Can you believe it?  Stampin’ Up has never done a sale like this before.  Starting July 7, you’ll get a coupon code for $5 to spend in August for each $50 you spend in July!  It’s like saving 10%! I have an additional special offer just from me, so if you don’t already have a demonstrator, email me and I’ll tell you all about it!  My special offer will be July 7-14, so email me today!

My baby started his first official job today!  He’s still 15, so jobs are limited.  Keegan is a bag boy at a Fareway grocery store.  At this store they do things the old fashioned way and carry groceries out to your car.  He came home very happy from his first day of work.  He said he loved it because it was easy, he met some great people, both customers and employees and best of all they paid him!  Keegan is motivated by money.  Keegan’s favorite person today was an older gentleman.  Keegan was carrying his groceries out to the car and asked the man if he should “pop the trunk?”  The man replied without missing a beat, “I haven’t buried the corpse yet, so you better put my groceries in the back seat.”  Keegan is hoping for many more customers like him with a great sense of humor!

Have a great day!
