Paper Pumpkin is an awesome monthly box of craftiness that comes with a stamping block, ink spot, stamp set and materials to make typically 8 or 9 cards. The regular cost is $20 plus tax and less per month if you buy a longer subscription. For one day only, the cost is only $5 and includes shipping! This is the best deal ever! If for some reason you don’t want the kit, buy it as a gift for someone else. Can you imagine how they’ll smile to find this box in their mailbox next month? See the video below for more details or contact me and I can tell you more about it. Here’s the link to sign up for the $5 deal. Please remember to choose me, Beth McCullough, as your demonstrator. For $5 in the US only, what do you have to lose?
I had a Paper Pumpkin class today and we had a great time! Hope you can join us next month! If you buy the kit, the class is free!
I’ve been MIA for a few days because after Sean left Wednesday evening, I spent all the time I could with Abby on Thursday and Friday. We shopped, packed, crafted and went to lunch. Superman and I made her favorite last couple meals including Cauliflower stir fried “rice” with beef and broccoli, Cayman eggs and homemade hamburger pizza. Abby also got all her laundry done and cleaned up her room. I didn’t realize it could be that clean and organized. Now that I know it’s possible…
On Saturday Abby took the SAT college entrance exam and then Superman and I spent ten hours driving Abby to camp, helping her get settled, taking Ryan and Abby out for dinner and then one last trip to Walmart for extension cords, trash can etc. and then the long trip home. It was hard to leave Abby there to be a camp counselor this summer. My other kids have never been gone for the summer at such a young age.
The three of us remaining at home (Superman, Keegan and I) will be up visiting our two middle kids in Okoboji soon. It will be quite an adjustment for Keegan to have to absorb all the parenting and advice Superman and I still feel the need to impart. He’s never been our only kid at home.
Anyway I need a bunch of cute and easy cards to send encouragement to my kids while they’re serving the Lord at camp. Use Your Stuff has a great color challenge this week. Please stop by and play along.
I used Stampin’ Up retired colors Green Galore and Orchid Opulance and current color Bermuda Bay. The two outer flowers are punched with the Flower Medallion punch. I also used the Pansy punch and Petite Petals for the smaller flowers. Quick and easy, but Abby will love it!
I have so much more I want to tell you, but Superman is waiting for me to watch a movie with him. Please subscribe to my blog and I’ll be back with more stamping ideas and a few more stories of our crazy life.
We are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary on May 31! I feel so blessed to be in a Christ centered marriage. Superman and I were talking about it and decided we’ve had a 30 year adventure with our best friend!
My dear friend and Stamping team mate, Marcelyn, brought over this amazing Anniversary card! Thanks Marcelyn, we love it! It’s actually four cards attached into one.
Superman got me two dozen Melon Mambo roses. They truly are beautiful in real life!
We are going to go to New York City for four nights later this summer to celebrate. I know we are going to a couple Broadway shows and the 9/11 Memorial. Do you have any favorite restaurants or fun things to do in New York that you would share with me?
This is my favorite picture from our wedding.
We’ve had a fun Memorial weekend of picnics with family and friends, graduation parties and fun with our kids. Ryan has already left for Okoboji. Sean goes back to Seattle on Wednesday and Abby leaves Saturday. It my be more than my Mom heart can handle. I’m afraid Keegan may be smothered by Superman and I this summer. He’s never been the only kid at home.
June 1 is the first day of the new catalog. Do you have your order ready?
