# Card Challenge Blogs

My Pumpkin Challenge - November

I have to say My Pumpkin Challenge is one of my new favorites.  Jessica and her team are doing great things over there and I highly suggest checking them out.

This month was hard because we had a great My Paper Pumpkin kit because it wasn't the usual card but a great notepad set and I loved the stamps but I admit to finding it different to see other uses for it. So of course that was the challenge this month, to do something different with it.

I actually did a Pinterest search to see what others were doing, looking for inspiration for the project. I wanted to do it to stretch myself and especially since I haven't been doing that many challenges of late because I am working on other crafts.

This was the best of both worlds project. I had found a fun pin about a Nice/Naughty board for the Elf on the Shelf. I had thought about doing it but than I decided I didn't really want to hold the kids to it and have anxiety build up about it so I passed on that idea but with that sprung another idea.



So this is what I came up- a Happy Holidays Memo board. I used MDS and created the fun Happy Holidays and than I stamped the "To Do" and Notes from this months Paper Pumpkin. I also used some of the fun new holiday stamps and die cuts that came out. Finally some of the fun paper from the note roll. 

I really like this and haven't decided to give it as a gift or keep it. I know if I gift it, it will be loved.

  3. You know, I think this is a GREAT alternate to "Nice" and "Naughty!" Sort of takes out the stigma, lol... What a fabulous project - thanks so much for sharing it with us at My Pumpkin Challenge!

    1. Thanks for the kind words. I really thought about and I hate being that Mom who uses that with the kids. It is all about the magic!
