September 1 -- we are getting close to fall -Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop

Shop Pumpkin Spice blog Hop September 1st Hop

I am so glad you could join us for another Shop Pumpkin Spice Blog Hop.
If You  arrived here from Lenae's  blog, then you are in the right spot

The August kit "SUMMER BLAST" is fantastic-- there is so much in this kit.
Everything on this card is from the kit except the gel pen I used to write with, that is from my stash.
This kit exudes summer with lots of patterns of  life and what we do here on labor day. I know there is a lot of BBQ-ing going on, I didn't want to go there. I wanted the card to be more beach -y, whimsical and all around end of the summer fun, so I gave it a title

 "Summer is over + it is Back to school"

Theme: Labor Day/Back to School

Look at every thing you get in the kit. Don't those 3 rolls of washi tape look yummy?
Look at the little garlands-- You know you want those. Every piece of paper in this kit is so adorable. I can see using this whole kit.

So here is what is in the kit: ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Look up^

As you all know Robyn,  AKA  My Pink Stamper will no longer be producing her stamps. I was sad and happy at the same time.  Sad for me, because I loved working with her kits, but happy for her and her family, that she is making the choice based on her needs.
Which brings me to----this point---- if you want to get her stamps there is a limited supply at Shop Pumpkin Spice. When they are gone they are gone.

We will still be having our Featured kit BLOG HOP- make sure to come back September 15th for that you will not want to miss it. Shop pumpkin spice has just gotten a whole new shipment of papers, stamps and embellishments in.  Great quality and a great price.

Challenge: In honor of Labor Day, make something Celebrating America! It can be 4th of July or anything that celebrates America!  Make sure to link it up over at pumpkin spice blog for a chance to win the Yankee Doodle stamp set.

Prize: Yankee Doodle Stamp Set (not the kit, just the stamp set.
 EXCLUSIVE stamp set that you cannot get ANYWHERE else! :)

I hope you enjoyed your time visiting me, and that you will enjoy the rest of the hop, you are about half way through now. I just loved having you here. Now head on over to Carissa's  for some more inspiration.

Before you go I wanted you to see another card that I made from this kit totally different, but I love it. There was only one sheet of the tea pot paper in there. That was fun paper to work with, it is gone now I think I have one circle left.

I love this card it is an A2 card
my sentiment is from Inkadinkadoo
The pink and the tea pot are from shop pumpkin spice.
I used creative inspiration paints to paint the body,  antennas and parts of the wings
with winter frost. The ribbon is 3 girl jam

Have a blessed day, Diana

 Before you go, I thought I would share with you the set of cards I made back in June from The Yankee Doodle set. I was going to say, I would give them away on this hop, then I remembered I had already given them away, to my neighbor who had just become a citizen.
