February '17, Garden Party


Good Morning! It's the last day of the month and time for 
12 Kits of Occasions.
This month we're featuring a bright and happy kit from Michelle Leone
called Garden Party. And what a party of spring colors and treats!


Some treats to color, like this cake,


Sweet bunnies and blooms,


Birds and die cuts,


rainy day papers and an umbrella,


tags, and more birds and cages,


and a favorite scalloped and curved set of die cuts I just couldn't separate!

Hope you enjoyed what I did with this month's kit. I loved every bit, and
have some left over.
Thank you, Michelle!

There's a kit waiting for some lucky commentor on the 12 kits blog,
February 2017- 'Garden Party', and please visit our Special guest this month,
Karen Walker from Random Reflections

  4. I've been oohing and aahing over all your cards through this entire post Nancy! I never thought to use the two scalloped pieces together either and I just love how it looks with the printed paper showing through. What a feast for the eyes, just as I knew it would be. All of your cards are fabulous!!

  6. Nancy it is no surprise that you've created the most adorable, layered, up beautifully embellished cards of the bunch! I think this kit was made with you, and Jeanne in mind! You won't think badly of me that I'm pretty chuffed we used the dotty tag on the same card base?! Yes!!! Every card a total charmer ... xx

  12. Wow, Nancy! Your use of the two scalloped borders was so creative! That was the perfect design for the large bird. And I love your glossy umbrella, definitely waterproof! Another favorite is your first card with the plaid background. I never think of things like that and it's so effective. Just so many beauties!!
