12 Kits of Occasions: Crafty Friends Are The Best

Hello and welcome to the 12 Kits of Occasions, February post.
The fabulous Jeanne Jackna is our hostess this month. Her kit was full of projects
for friendship, especially our crafty friends! I loved every bit, thank you Jeanne!
Here's what I made:

Sweet Pure Innocence from MFT inspired this card. Jeanne supplied all the elements
with the exception of the easel (PTI: You're a Masterpiece). I had way too much fun
painting the mini landscape!

These paintbrushes from Waffle Flower are the cutest. Just had to combine 
them on a pallet (Poppystamps) and frame them.

In our kits were all these wonderfully colorful and artsy designer papers.
I couldn't resist using as many as I could. This sweet little frame from Hero Arts
was perfect to frame one of the flowers.

I used several of the papers in the kit for this collage. Not a stamped image on this card.

These Crafty Critters are enjoying the day with each other.

Jeanne included these die cut wood stamps (C9), along with the foil scissors and b/w
designer paper. I had the Concord & 9th stamped paper already done, and created my
card around it. It's one their Turnabout series (Crafty Turnabout). I just made my ink
pads to match. The sentiment is from the same set.

And finally, this Reverse Confetti tag, came with the window popped out. Just 
perfect for a flower stamp, also from Reverse Confetti, called Floral Gem.

I have several elements left over for more crafty goodness.
Can't wait to use them!

Thanks for the visit, and if you have some time, what'd you think? Did 
you like a particular card? Mine has to be the first one, with the PI doll
painting her masterpiece. That was just too fun to do. I forgot to mention
I used puff paint on the clouds and mountains. 

So hard to see, but irl the texture's there, and looks like wet paint.

Jeanne's invited 5 guests! Be sure to visit them and leave some love!
