Happy Tuesday! Hope your week is going well so far. I’m off with my daughter to tour colleges in Southern California. She’s a senior this year, so it’s coming down to the wire for completing college applications. This trip should help her make her final decisions.
In the meantime, there are new Weekly Deals today. You can see them here:

Paper Pumpkin Billing:
For the month of October you may notice that you are billed a few days later than you normally would be. However, that should not delay the shipment of your monthly subscription. Paper Pumpkin Kits will still go out on or around the 15th of the month as usual.
I have a super cute card to share that my sister Jill made my husband for his birthday last month. She used a card base from an old Paper Pumpkin kit. She also used some old Paper Pumpkin stamps, as well as some current and retired stamp sets to complete the rest of the card.
I love the way every section is different! She must have used every birthday stamp in her inventory (maybe — I know she has A LOT of stamps.) But, the thing that makes the card look cohesive are the similar colors on each panel.
The color combination works so great for a masculine card. She used Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, and Soft Suede.
The closer I look at this card, the more details I see. There are different punches, die cuts, layering, and even Candy Dots!
Jill altered the original Paper Pumpkin “box” for this card so it would lay flat for mailing, and decorated it with stamps and washi tape.
In addition to all the fun panels on the front of the card, she also stamped the back of each panel with a cute signature stamp. I love it!!!
To me, this card really demonstrates the versatility of Paper Pumpkin. Is so different from the original, yet a great use of the exclusive stamps!
My husband loved it!!! Thanks Jill!
