12 Kits of Occasions June '17

Hi and welcome to 12 Kits of Occasions June '17!
We're celebrating the fabulous Michele Ferguson, from I Card Everyone,
this month. She's put together a manly kit for us, 
called: 'It's a Guy Thing'
Lots of fun images, masculine colors and sassy sayings!

Leading off with a WOW of a sentiment from Avery Elle.
PTI Watercolor Wonders stampset, PPP tag & Cricut EF.

GA'ed the avocado pit to pop it up, then embossed it with 
Ranger's gold Embossing Tinsel.

I was so glad to see these MFT Seaside Seagulls in the kit!
Love them to bits!
Paired with MFT's sun and Lil' Inkers frames.

With 6 grandsons, this card will surely come in handy!
Poppy Stamps Happy Birthday Background die.

All these sentiments were in the kit. Also the shaker and window card stock.

Love this 'Thanks' die, and think it's perfect for guy or gal.

A better look at the 'Hinged Thanks' from Essentials by Ellen.

Among the treasures Michele included in the kit, was 3 dragonflies perfectly 
embossed, and ready to be popped onto a card front. 
With a few tweaks to the image (Nuvo copper glitter & Stickles Mercury Glass)
I did my favorite card!
MFT: Wonky Stitched Rectangles, PPP sequins.
PTI Melon Berry Cardstock & Pattern cardstock.

Michele invited Bobby Hogan, (Bits & Pieces), to be our guest this month,
Be sure and visit her blog and give her some love.
Can't wait to see what the teamies did with this fabulous kit!

Hugs, Michele!
Lots left over to play with later!
