Good morning! Can you believe that it is the last day of February? This month has been mostly sick-filled for us, and I feel like it has flown by. Thankfully, Michelle Leone, the newest Papertrey Ink Designer (just had to throw that in there...we're so proud of her!) and wonderful host for this month's 12 Kits of Occasions sent us a fabulous "Garden Party" themed kit, which was just what I needed to end this month with a smile. The cheerful colors and elements are so welcomed at this time of year when we are all anticipating the arrival of spring. The only things I added to the kit were a tiny bit of black twine and sequins, so make sure you head to the supply list here if you want to know more details. On to the cards!
Isn't this little bunny the cutest? Love him and his little bird buddy. (They come in a collection of bunnies and birds from Frantic Stamper).
I am loving the little hints of green starting to pop up outside. I have bulbs already coming up! (Crazy! But it forgot how to snow here this here, so spring is making an early arrival at our house.) Anyway, after winter I'm always reminded just how beautiful green is, so I wanted to let these beautiful green stems shine.
There is a reason the kit is named Garden Party as it also included some super cute cakes from Jane's Doodles and coordinating sentiments. I had a lot of fun using cake on a mini Love Note sized card, which are my new favorite "tag" for birthday gifts.
I loved the patterned paper in this kit, and after seeing Rebecca Luminarias' darling fringe ensemble (if you want to see total cuteness, check it out here) , I just had to fringe a little myself. (This is another mini Love Note size card.)
Another fun cake on a simple tag....doesn't this just scream spring? Love that.
My last card some of the stamped flowers and leaves in the set. The little dot details are so cute. And as luck would have it, it is the Simon Says: Anything Goes Challenge, so I'm linking all of these up for their challenge today.
I sure love how the timing of that challenge works so perfectly with our 12 Kits post. ;)
Thanks for joining me today! Don't forget to go to the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog next, so you can see peeks of what all the other designers and our guest have created with this fabulous spring-filled kit, and then hop along to their blogs. Wishing you a cheerful day!
