The December Paper Pumpkin kit was just as cute as its recent predecessors. It is awesome! 

Unfortunately, with the Holidays, I didn't get to play with my kit until a few days ago. And then it was a case of "quick sneak in one card". Not really very satisfying, but, as my dad would say, "It's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick." In other words, a little is better than nothing. (At least, that's how I always interpreted Dad's little aphorism.)

Darling little shaker cards, this is what the front of the instruction page for the December kit looks like:

When creating my quickie card, I didn't change it up much at all. The only thing I really did differently from the directions was that instead of angling the word, I set it straight across:

I am getting ready for my first workshop since October (for November, our house -- as well as my mind -- was in complete disarray, and a December workshop would have been pushing it too much since we moved into our new home the day before Thanksgiving). After the workshop, which is scheduled for next Monday, January 12, I have every intention of unearthing this little gem of a kit once again and having some more fun with all its components. I already have some ideas floating around in my brain. So, stay tuned for more variations in the near future!
