Paper Pumpkin June 2015 Happy Thoughts

 I realized I'm a little behind in sharing the Paper Pumpkin kits! It;s been a crazy hectic summer, so I guess that shouldn't surprise me. This is the June 2015 kit, "Happy Thoughts". It makes 8 cards, 4 each of 2 designs. One of the other demonstrators in our group was looking for it so I sold mine to her. Make sure you check out Pinterest for lots of great alternate ideas using the kits!

Use It Up Cozy Christmas Merry Everything Oh, What Fun

 Cleaning out my scrap box again! I had 3 of these little note pieces left from a kit that is now retired, They were so cute I had to find a way to use them! The colors on them were Old Olive and Real Red, so that's what I decided to use for the  cards. I also found 4 strips of Real Red that were 5 1/2" long. Perfect! OK, here's the first card:
