April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative

The design team I’m on at Use Your Stuff is having a Circle Challenge this week!  Circles are a challenge everyone can easily do, so jump over to Use Your Stuff when you have your Circle Creation completed.

My dear college friend, Sharon, is having a birthday this week so I decided to make this circle birthday card for her.

Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set has beautiful fonts and is the show piece for this circle challenge birthday card designed by demo Beth McCullough. This April 2017 Paper Pumpkin Alternative makes use of some of my favorite kit parts.Please see more card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

A couple friends were over stamping this month’s Paper Pumpkin with me on Friday evening.  I love the Lemon Lime Twist with the black and white, so I chose to use some of the Paper Pumpkin kit parts on this card and make a Paper Pumpkin April 2017 Alternative card.  I used the washi tape from the kit and also the DSP lining from one of the envelopes.  The sentiment is from the new Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

Saturday night was Prom for Abby and Keegan.  Here’s a picture of my kids before they met up with their friend groups.  I love the Lilac bushes shown in the background.  They smell wonderful!

We weren’t expecting any kids at our house Saturday evening. Before the night was over, Keegan and his girlfriend stopped over before the dance, Abby and her friend group came to have snacks and change before “After Prom”, and Ryan brought ten of his Okoboji Bible camp counselor friends for a bonfire in our back yard, and seven of them stayed overnight.  With three of our kids along with the seven guests, we had young adults sleeping on every couch and bed all over the house.  Sunday morning we sent them off after having cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs and bacon.  It was a fun evening!  I hope they all come back soon.  Superman and I are going to be super lonely when we become empty nesters in sixteen months!  I’ll probably have a lot more time to make cards though. 🙂

Bunny Cake made by Abby McCullough. Please see card and gift ideas at www.StampingMom.com #StampingMom #cute&simple4u

I hope you had a wonderful Easter!  We certainly did!  Here’s the Bunny Cake that Abby made.  My Grandma Olson made them while I was growing up, I made them for several years and now Abby has been the Bunny Cake maker for probably eight years.  Someone asked me why the bunny’s bow tie is missing?  Well, we needed to taste test it and make sure the bunny was yummy!  Also, our pan is not big enough to add the bow tie so it is now a tradition to eat the bow tie when we decorate the cake.  We had a wonderful Easter church service at Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines, IA.  Here’s the link to the video of the sermon if you’re interested.

I spent the afternoon cooking today.  I made two big pans of scalloped potatoes and ham, healthy Chocolate Zucchini Protein Muffins, and  my healthy Porridge Breakfast.

Hope you had a blessed day!

Beth 🙂
