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!






I actually already sent out all of the cards, too! They were too cute not to :) Now go check out the 12 kits blog so you can see what all the other ladies made, too. Thanks for stopping by and happy Easter!

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!


Hope you like it!

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #271

I just got back from a work trip to Baltimore, and the coolest thing ever happened while I was there...I met a director from one of our sister communities, and she is former DT member for MFT, Kim O'Connell!!! It was so awesome to talk with her on the plane about all things crafty, and we are going to be getting together, too. (we live really close to each other). Not only do we both enjoy stamping, but we have a passion for seniors and work in the same industry for the same great company. She was sweet as ever, I'm so glad I met her :) I never in a million years thought that that would be happening on my trip! 

Of course when I got back I was ready to ink up another one of the sets from my last order, Prehistoric Fun. I used it to play along with this week's sketch challenge:

I turned it on its side and created this card:

My Favorite Things Color Challenge #40

Well, I didn't have the exact colors, but I tried to get close! I just got this sheep set in my most recent order. I had been on the fence about it, but I've seen so many adorable cards made with it, and after this one, I definitely have no regrets...the sheep are ADORABLE!!

My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge #269

A long time family friend is going to be a grandma! I'm so excited for her and I couldn't wait to make a card, so I used this week's MFT sketch, and I have to say, I love the results! I used a stencil in the background and I must say, I need to buy more, I've been having fun with them lately :) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that one of these days my name will get pulled as the winner, because with this new MFT release coming up, my wish list is getting long!
