Paper Crafts magazine Presents: 365 Cards Blog Hop

Happy Friday!  And I'm sure for many of you, it's even happier than usual because of the holiday!  If you have some extra time off this weekend, I hope you find some creative time!  If you're in the mood to shop, I've posted some sale details HERE.

It's been a fun week in Paper Crafts magazine land.  If you've been following along with the Paper Crafts Connection and Moxie Fab World blogs, then you've probably seen all of the fun peeks of the newest special issue...

365 Cards!


365 days in a year.  

365 cards in this new issue.  


We think not.  

I got my issue in the mail the other day and it's just plain FUN!  So many fun cards for so many different occasions...the biggies (Christmas, Easter, Halloween, etc...) and the little ones (National Lollipop Day, anyone??).  Let's just say this issue was a blast to work on.

Well today is a fun day too.  Twelve designers from this issue are showing brand new cards today!  

12 Designers.

12 months in a year.


Probably not.  :-)

Each of the designers on the hop is featuring a month of the year.  I'm Miss October.  I'd probably better enjoy that title because I'm pretty sure this as close as I'm going to get.  :-)  

When I think of October the first thing that comes to mind is PUMPKINS!  They are everywhere during the month of October and I just love the bright spot they give throughout the month.  

So, meet my little punkin.  


I thought this would be a fun card to give to a child or grandchild any time during the month of October...versatile enough to not be limited to Halloween.  It could even be used for an October birthday, don't you think?  I created the shaped card base using the the Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge and my Gypsy.  I love how easy it is to create shaped cards with the Cricut/Gypsy combo.  




So I've already told you one of my favorite things about October, what's yours? Leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing about the month of October, and I'll randomly select one winner to receive a copy of the new 365 Cards.
