Welcome to the May 2023 Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop sharing creative inspiration using the May 2023 Exploring In Color Paper Pumpkin kit.

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop

The May 2023 Exploring In Color Paper Pumpkin kit is probably my most favorite Paper Pumpkin kit to date. It has so much opportunity! The images and style of this kit make it appropriate for masculine or feminine and nearly any occasion from a celebration of a birthday or a precious loss. People are lonely and need a pick me up and receiving a card in the mail is the perfect way to let someone know you are thinking of them and that you care.

There are three different card bases in the kit and one of the card base images has a canoe on it. My oldest sister loves to canoe. I can swim and I am a good swimmer, however the idea of getting in a canoe does not appeal to me. So, I made up the card with the canoe just as the kit designed it and I sent it to my Sister and yesterday I received the sweetest text message back to say how much she loved it!
