SERIOUSLY! My Paper Pumpkin

SERIOUSLYMy Paper Pumpkin brings me a kit with a stamp that says SERIOUSLY!  
This is a word my granddaughter says ALL the time.
Talk about current.

Stampin' Up! has a great thing going with this My Paper Pumpkin.
These monthly kits are great for beginners AND they keep, long time stampers like me,
stamping away and on the cutting edge of colors and trends.

 I'm just thrilled! 
My Granddaughter will love it too!

Along with the  bold 'SERIOUSLY' stamp, you'll also find two other stamps included 
"you kick booty" and "love your guts"

And the colors couldn't be more perfect!
That pop of Cherry Cobbler with the Pool Party and the Lucky Limeade, Just Brilliant!

Ready for a little story?  If not, just scroll thru to the sample and have a grand day! 

I was in such a hurry to see my kit.  Imagine this.
My friend Frances e-mails me and says...My Paper Pumpkin came!
So I run to the mailbox.  Definitely the best piece of mail in the box.  I open it quickly, then shut it so I can come in a take photo's for you. (your welcome!)  Once that is finished, I stand there at the counter and make my first card with the Snail adhesive that I keep in my kitchen drawer.
Did I mention,  I might have been on my way to the bathroom when I stopped at my computer.
(Yep! I said it!) 

 Under just a tad of crossed legged stress, here is my first card.

 SERIOUSLY??  I smeared it!  Yes ma'am! I am posting my smeary card.  
(actually, I'm starting to like the effect!)

When your Paper Pumkin arrives, restrain yourself!  Approach with calm.  This is a treat, something to relax with, savor, enjoy and share with others!  You can peak in the box, see what awaits you. Then CLOSE IT! 
Set aside 30 minutes or so.  SIT DOWN, grab a beverage, and a friend, if you can.  

Then enjoy the feel of the paper...the sights of the designs...the combinations of the colors...
the fact that someone made a kit for you, to just sit down and make! 
All in a space the size of a placemat !

Or just bust open that puppy and crank out a card in just a few minutes.  Seriously!  It's just paper and ink. I left a little more love than usual, on this fingerprints! 
But that's cool right?  We are sharing ourselves.  
 I'm kind of lovin' it!  I was thinking of repairing it, but now, I just might keep it!

I will return with more variations on the  My Paper Pumpkin "Seriously" kit.
