Hello Hoppers! This month on the Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop we are featuring probably my favorite Paper Pumpkin kit yet!!!!!!  You Are My Anchor is right in my wheelhouse!!! It makes an adorable little set of cards as is, but so many options for coolness also! See, I am from Cape Cod! So anything nautical or ocean is my happy place!!! I love this set!!!!

So here's what I did:

This is a card to give with one of these amazing little gift sets that is made with the kit:

Just click on her name or the little pumpkin below!!!
