    Dear Friend

    Today is all about a Paper Pumpkin alternative. As a Paper Pumpkin subscriber since the beginning, I can honestly say that if you have been outta the loop for a while, you NEED to get back in!! Shelli Gardner, co-founder of Stampin’ Up! helped to design this kit. The top card, in Pool Party, is from the kit, mostly as the directions state.

I hear you cringing, however, a fussy cut was necessary. Can you hear the feathers asking to be cut out??…
