12 Kits of Occasions: March 2019 - A Whimsical Garden

A great big 'howdy' to you all! The last day of March brings the 
12 Kits of Occasions. And our hostess Lisa Elton from,
is spreading Spring our way with 'A Whimsical Garden'. 

Beautiful papers from Cartabella, darling die cuts and sentiments, stamped sweet Spring
 images, and the most gorgeous rose gold sequins ever! Be still my blossom lovin' heart! 
Well just take a look...

This guy is loving the rain, and the hope of Spring blooms so much, I had to lead with 
him. Life in my valley is beautiful right now. We've had loads of life giving rain, and I
thank God for every drop!

Lisa included this phrase, which I added to the inside of froggie's card.
Really... it says it all!

Next up, one of 3 Impression Obsession bunnies included in the kit, popped up on
a field of flowers.

Lisa wrapped our goodies in this green and white chevron paper. Wish you could
feel it, so rich and smooth. Perfect for 2 bunny friends enjoying the outdoors.
Corners cut from PTI's Mix and Mat Herringbone and some of Lisa's dp from the kit.

These 2 friends are mounted on Stamplorations: Luggage tags

Lisa stamped these 2 in soft brown ink for us. I used my Polychromos pencils to color them.

I'm a bit over the moon for this Art Gone Wild 'puttering around bunny'. Lisa sent us the 
mini bow too. Seemed a good place to put it, over the medallion, on the wreath. 
Colored with copics.

I also colored the trio of bloom die cuts with copics, and framed the card in black.

Thank you, thank you, Lisa for a fabulous Spring-a-licous kit!
Can't wait to peruse my 'kit sisters' blogs to see how they used their goodies! 

Lisa is giving away a couple of mini kits on her blog. Be sure to visit her blog
for details.

Happy Spring! Hope it's beginning to look like Spring where you are!

And you used all the papers so beautifully too...every card is a masterpiece!! LOVE the little IO bunny card and the card with the little girl and the bunny peeking out from behind her...SOOOOOO cute!! And of course the Art Gone Wild bunnies are just too sweet with all the layered goodness you added! Lovely, lovely cards my friend!! :0)

  2. Oh Nancy, my heart is just filled with joy after looking at your beautiful cards! I love the froggie with the rainboot paper. It is such a fun pairing, I wish I had saved mine out now. Your topiary bunnies and little girl are colored so sweetly, as are the beautiful flowers. Gosh, I'm just in awe and wish I could case all of your cards. Happy spring my friend!

I love how you always add a bit of your own to the kits and that you were smart enough to use the green chevron paper--smart lady!
