Happy Mail and This Month's Paper Pumpkin

Happy Friday, stampers!  Hope you have some fun things planned this weekend!  I just received my April Paper Pumpkin kit, and it's a really fun one!  It features colored pencils, watercolor papers, some with resist patterns, and a paintbrush!  Cool!  I whipped up these two cards fairly quickly; I only used one color on this one, making my design darker at the bottom to create an ombre effect:

All you do is color in the areas inside the resist pattern, then brush it with the damp paintbrush!

Here's the second one...I did add a few retired sequins just for fun:

The kit comes with full-sized cards, white inserts, and even black envelopes with a white space on which to write the address...more trendy fun!  If you're interested in subscribing to Paper Pumpkin, click on the link on the right side of my blog!

And speaking of fun, I got some lovely Easter cards in the mail, and I thought I would share them! Their names are right on the photos!  Thanks, everyone!

I just had to share this picture!  We went up to my brother's house to let out the dog on one day when Cassidy had off school.  She had gotten a word puzzle as a party favor the weekend before and brought it with her.  While I tossed a stick to the dog, she sat on the ground and did her puzzle.  The reason it brought a chuckle is because I do the same thing....might not sit on the ground, but if I have a long car ride (or a short one!) or a few free minutes to spare, you can be sure I have a crossword or sudoku to work on!!!  And my mom used to do the same thing...I guess it's a family tradition!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I think you've passed on a tradition for sure, LeAnne, how wonderful! Speaking of wonderful: love the use of black on each of your cards - very cool!

Thanks for posting my card, LeAnne!! The flower is from a very old set called Funky Flowers, I believe. I did the dot border with a pencil eraser! Fun and easy!!

The black stripes on your cards make a striking addition LeAnne!! These are marvelous!! How cute that Cassidy has picked up one of your fun habits!!
