Pumpkin Spice DT call!!

**POST 2 for Friday, July 16

Hello, friends:}

I am so thankful that I found the Pumpkins Spice website {Shop Pumpkin Spice} and blog! They sell all kinds of fabulous papers {all of my favs!!} at 30% off everything! I love a good deal! You need to check them out HERE! I cannot wait until my paycheck comes--I'm going shopping:}

Pumpkins Spice is also having their very first Design Team call! I knew I had to try out {it never hurts, right!?}. The mission for this DT call was to create a project using two or more of the following paper lines:
Bo Bunny
Cosmo Cricket 
Crate Paper
Echo Park
Graphic 45
My Mind’s Eye

As you all know, I love to mix and match my papers and stamps and even stamp companies! I wanted to make a special card, so I used Crate Paper, Cosmo Cricket, and My Mind's Eye for my entry. I loooooove how this card turned out! I really like the mixture of layers and those book images on the left--those are from Crate Paper! And that dog {Unity}--I wasn't sure about--but I love love love him now! So cute:}
The recipe for my card [click on the company name and it will link you back to Pumpkins Spice's website]:::
Paper: (orange grid: Joy Ride collection) Cosmo Cricket; (yellow circles, books: Toy Box collection) Crate Paper; (blue grid, red stripes: Lime Twist-Fly A Kite collection) My Mind's Eye
Stamps: (dog, sentiment) Unity Stamp Co.; (stitching, hearts) Paper Smooches
Brads: (brown, yellow, silver) Making Memories; (teal: Brooke Collection) Crate Paper
Twine: (Brown Sugar: Divine Twine) Ribbon Carousel
Alphas: (Chocolate: Holly Doodle) Pink Paislee

Oh--I almost forgot--another thing we have to do for the  Pumpkins Spice DT mission is state our favorite paper company. I have to say that I have a couple of favorites::: My Mind's Eye, October Afternoon, Pebbles, Crate Paper, and Cosmo Cricket. I really enjoy all the patterns and designs on each paper! This is why I mix and match all the time:}

That's it for me today! Be sure to scroll down or click HERE to see my Paper Smooches decorations for my homemade chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with cookie dough buttercream frosting! 

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}
