Thank You My Paper Pumpkin


There are two simple words that show you are grateful for what was done or given to you.  I often like to say, “There are not enough thank you’s in the world to show you my gratitude.”

So, today I say THANK YOU to you… my friend!  Thank you for signing up to follow My Paper Journey.  I’ve been at this for two years and I have learned so much from you and the blog.  If you haven’t signed up you can click right here and sign up now.


The card is an upscaled version of March’s My Paper Pumpkin and if you haven’t signed up to get the monthly kit delivered straight to your door step all I can say is your missing out on some fantastic kits.  If you missed the orignal kit card, you can find the original right here.

Lesson Learned:  You can take an original design and change it up a bit to make it your own.  With this card I used the same elements that came with the kit… the wooden ‘thank you’ die cut and the arrow stamp.

To make it my own I stamped the die cut in Silver Metallic ink with sponge daubers.  Then I embossed the arrow stamp with Silver embossing powder to give it texture.

Finally, to mimic the original card I used the flower punch that comes with the Punch Pack to give it a sparkle finish.

Thank You So Much Pals!

Recently, I needed some of our Spanish catalogs for a Show & Tell and I ran out.  I asked my creative sisters (over 400+) if anyone had any left they could sell me.

Immediately, they responded and they helped me out FREE of charge!  Do you have people in your creative life that have never met you, yet your hobby has brought you together and your friendships are so meaningful you feel truly connected?

I have my own Circle of Pals and we belong to an even stronger group of Pretty Pals…. over 400+ in all!  I’m NOT exaggerating either.

We connect not just in person, but virtually, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube.  They give me creative ideas and feedback when I’m not feeling creative or I need some coaching.

My hobby and new friends have enriched my life and to thank them I send them “thank you” cards for their generosity.  YOU too can be in my Circle and become a part of the most wonderful beautifully creative people in the world.
