Merry Christmas 3

Hello Blogger Friends! Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
This cold and congestion has gotten the better of me and my hubby. He and I spent most of the day yesterday under our blankets just laying on our sofa. Fortunately we have a large sectional so we each could get our space (lol)!!
Drinking hot tea and eating chicken noodle soup was our lot for the day. I slept through the night and just woke at 9:00 am. And that after sleeping a few hours in the afternoon. I am coughing but don't feel as congested as yesterday. So hopefully I am on the way to clearing up.
Now onto the cards I am sharing for today.  These are 3 that I made with the Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin kit for November. The 1st and 3rd cards are alternate projects and my 2nd card is made following the kit instructions.
On the top card I used some designer paper, die cut a frame and flag and added a medallion doily. The sentiment is from kit from last year and the flourish from the September kit. I used this card from Holly as inspiration.
this one made with kit instructions and stamp
used different stamp set and added a layer

These paper Pumpkin Kits have been so great in the 1 1/2 years I have been a part of the monthly club. You should give them a try. If you need a Stampin'-Up demonstrator, let me know. My demo offers 20% discount on all orders. It just doesn't apply to these Paper Pumpkin Kits but they are only $19.95 per month.
Well, that's it for me for today Blogger friends so until next time.......God bless.
