12 Kits of Occasions October '16: Let's Be Thankful

Good morning and welcome to 12 Kits of Occasions, 
a day earlier than usual. We usually post the last day of the month,
but tomorrow being Halloween, we are coming to you on the 30th.
'Let's Be Thankful' is our theme this month, with a super sweet kit
full of a variety of stamps and dies from 
our hostess, Michele Ferguson.

I send out as many thank you cards as birthdays, so
I welcomed Michele's lovely papers, die cuts, ribbon, pearls, sequins, and
even a laser wood cut butterfly.
Well, just look at Lindsey's beautiful photo of all our goodies in the photo above!

Hope you enjoy my cards, I loved making them!
Thank you Michele. The first card was done with you in mind,
knowing your love of butterflies!

So many gorgeous papers

2 sets of these die cut leaves. Used them on this card.

Used my zigs on this die cut.

Michele included some printed doilies, which I put under this dual fold card.
She gave us pearls I copic colored.

So easy to just add the 'thanks' die cut to these coordinated designer papers.

A shaker with some of the sequins

Copic colored this kitty, and created a tag attached to a polka dot bag
Michele gave us in the kit.

Thank you for the visit.
You won't want to miss the other designers, and see what 
they all did with Michele's wonderful kit!
And we have a talented guest too, Leanne Pugliese.


  1. Yes, yes, yes! I totally enjoyed each and every card here today, Nancy! The pink doily card is darling in every way and I love that CAS shaker with the gorgeous bloom! Oh... I love your water color too!

  2. What a wonderful array of beauty here Nancy! I love them all, especially that rose shaker card ~ it is so stunning! You totally rocked this amazing kit!

  3. Nancy is it wrong to say I wondered if the butterfly card was in my honor? Or maybe Sharron's as she is in love with them, too! Each and every card is indicative of your lovely style, Nancy ... so happy you liked my kit! Will you send that little Kitty to our CTS Card for a Cause this week? xx

  13. These are just amazing, Nancy! I really love the beautiful shaker & the typewriter card is so unique & fun!

  14. Sorry I'm late Nancy! I love visiting you - every time is an absolute delight... I love that we used the doily the same way on the split opening card - I knew we had a connection! LOL! My favorite card here is the leaves with the distress behind them (grateful) .. but oh gosh.. all that color on that Neat and Tangled stamp is amazing!

  15. Oh my gosh, Nancy, you made SO much!!! I absolutely adore the leaves card, they look like stained glass! And the grateful card looks amazing with the sponged color behind the leaves, so simple, yet so cool, I want to try it! Of course your cat bag is adorable :) And the butterfly card you chose to showcase is just beautiful!
