12 Kits of Occasions April '17

Hello! And welcome to 12 Kits of Occasions: April post.
Our hostess this month is Sharron Gregory from On Papillon Wings,
and her kit is titled: Hello Friends.
I couldn't wait to dig into this kit, filled with sweet critters, 
darling dressed for rain kids, and papers and sentiments to match! 
Loved the theme, and love you, Sharron.
You hit my sweet spot with your joyous kit!

On to the cards!

I lead with a favorite, 2 Mama Elephant rain slicker tots sharing an umbrella.

This closeup shows some glossy accents on the umbrella
and the rain wear.

What would you do with a kitty just begging for color? 
I might have gone a bit overboard with the eye makeup, but she didn't complain...

Sharron was very generous with the PTI: Super Succulant pattern paper,
paired perfectly with the Spellbinders pots and succulents.

Honey Bunny just seemed to go with this sentiment!
Background was a PTI Ocean Tides card stock that I put through my emboss
machine with a Spellbinders folder, rolled with ink.
Memory Box Scribble Flower Circle.

Sharron sent along this cloud filled card stock.
 I couldn't resist putting it with this 
sweet pair I colored with pencils. can you see their fuzzy tails?

And finally, another favorite, was this birdhouse duo included in our kit, 
I left white,
and added it to a PTI scallop circle sponge inked, with 3 popped up 
Succulant Garden flowers, I just happened to have.
Otherwise Sharron's kit supplied me with more than 
enough wonders I hadn't seen before or had!
Plenty of cards on hand to send to friends is just what I needed.

Don't forget to check out the other 12 Kits Designers for more
card ideas. And so happy to see Marcia Hill as our Guest Designer this month!
Please go by and give her some love at Marcia Hill's time for Paper.


  1. Nancy I hope you're still celebrating ... these lovelies are certainly worth a celebration of their own! Cannot wait to go back to my own rain-kids to add glossiness to their rain gear - though I did do a little wet puddle! LOve them all, and you, too ... xx

  2. I knew I'd be blown away by your cards Nancy and I totally am! I love the slick rain coat treatment your little kiddo's got. I need to add some GA to mine as well. ;0)
    The coloring on that kitty is over the top amazing~ Eye make-up and all! You totally rocked the succulents on that cacti card. And fuzzy bunny tails.... Yes!! So, so darling... every one of them!

  3. As always, your cards are fabulous!! I love the way you colored in the bunnies, with the little fuzzy tails. I also like the colors on the last card. Great design and it looks like you had a lot of fun with this kit.

  4. Love ALL your cards Nancy, and just too funny that we both added pompoms to the little bunny tails! Loved your shiny raincoats too and your last card with the succulents and bird houses is it!! I had so much fun with this kit too and appreciate all you talented ladies letting me hang out with you this month!! :0)

  5. Oh goodness gracious did you ever make Sharron's kit shine!! I love what you've done with the little rain coat kids. I didn't use mine yet, thanks for the idea. The coloring on the fancy floral cat is fabulous and I love the pretty birdhouse card!!

  6. Wow, Nancy, your coloring is amazing! Love how you used your magic on the kit! Your cat certainly looks very cool and I adore your sweet bunnies with fuzzy tails. Great idea to use GA on the rain gear too. Your last card was such an inspiration. Love that design!

  7. Every card is beautiful and unique. I love cats so that one is my favorite. Thanks for sharing your talents.

  8. Nancy these are all amazing! I love your raincoat card in color! I keep looking at it and it looks like the coats are really wet, great job! I love that last one with the birdhouses, I am happy I still have that to use. As always very amazing designs with the kit, my friend!

  10. Look at all the different techniques you used.. the distress behind the bird houses, the glossy accent rain coats, the gold embossed kitty that reminds me of cloisonne.. I could go on and on.. You amaze me!

  11. WOW.... an amazing array of beautiful cards! Love, love the shiny raincoat kids and your final succulent/birdhouse project is just lovely in every way! Fantastic colors/coloring and great use of so many of the fabulous kit elements!
