12 Kits of Occasions April 2016

A coffee themed kit? Thanks, Tracey! I love coffee, and the colors you chose were so rich! I also loved all the different sayings and images to choose from, especially those doughnuts and that adorable bear!! I'm embarrassed that I was only able to make 3 this month, but I've been working on some invitations to a baby shower (just finished and mailed out today!). I'll share those soon. I still have a good bit of supplies left from the kit, so I can case!

MFT Sketch Challenge #276

I have seen several cards pairing the MFT gnomes and succulents, and I just had to have both sets! We recently got a gnome for the front yard and my 2 year old loves it, he says "hi gnome" every morning and goes over and pats his hat. So I went to show him this card and he says "WOW!" and then I pointed at the gnome and said "Sonny who is this?" thinking he would say gnome for sure, but he said..."Papa" LOL! Of course I had to text Nana right away and she thought it was hilarious too. Anyway, here is my take on this week's sketch, and the first Mother's Day card I've made this year:

My Favorite Things Sketch #275

Back for this week's round of sketch challenge with My Favorite Things! I just got this camper set, so I had to make a card for my husband. We will be taking our camper on vacation soon, so I thought this would be fun to give to him. Those are our initials in the wood heart.

MFT Sketch Challenge #274

I was so sad to miss last week's challenge, but it was for good reason, we were celebrating Easter with family in Maine, and it was the first trial run in our new camper. We will be taking it for a long trip to FL soon, so we needed a closer trial run. I had a really busy weekend again this weekend, but didn't want to miss another week, so I used a sheep that I still had left from last time's card, and created a cute thank you note for the family members that we visited for Easter. They'll love the funny sentiment.

Paper & Raindrops from my stash (not sure where they're from lol)

12 Kits of Occasion: March 2016

Hi everyone, and welcome back to another installment of the 12 Kits of Occasions! This month we had newcomer, Michelle, sent out the kits, and what a fabulous kit she sent out! I hadn't worked with anything that she sent, so it was so fun to try out new and adorable bunnies and paper. I particularly love the carrot paper and those veggies...the colors that she stamped them in were so vibrant, luckily I have a few left so I can case what some of my fellow 12 kittens make!

MFT Color Challenge #41


Here to play along with another MFT color challenge. Again, I didn't have the exact colors, so I just went as close as I could, and I created this cute little dinosaur card with a leftover dino that I had colored already during last week's sketch challenge!
