12 Kits of Occasions ~ April

Hello friends ~ It's the last day of the month, so you know what that means right?  It's time for the 12 Kits of Occasion reveal post.  
This month Sharron Gregory of On Papillon Wings was our hostess with the mostest.


 Her kit was filled with heart warming words of comfort and friendship.  I adored everything she included in her sweet kit and everything was new to me so it was super fun creating with it!  
These little friends dressed in their rain gear were just so adorable!  I enjoyed coloring them up with Copics and using that fabulous cloud embossed background.  

I thought this green striped designer paper that Sharron included in the kit made a perfect rainy background.  Sweet little green sequins add a touch of whimsical rain drops.

This little pooch is so darling backed with more fun paper from the kit.

Ok, so the light I used on this card is actually supposed to be a bird bath but I used the birds elsewhere and thought of this layout.  I thought the sentiment called for a spotlight focused on this  lonely little pup.  

 This kitty and bird became fast friends while traveling in the mail on their way to my house.
ETA:  I'll be adding this card to the Paper Players tic tac toe challenge using circles, sequins and pink.

The same with this sweet little pair.

I've never created anything with succulents before so these dies and papers were extra fun for me to work with.

 I'm not exactly sure if the red shape is meant to be a flower but that's the direction I went in with it.  


Such a sweet, sweet pair of friends...

That's it for my magic today but I still have so many leftovers to create more cards.   I ran out of time to make them before leaving for our trip to visit our son and sweet daughter-i-l in sunny California.

Thank you so much Sharron for such a wonderful and touching kit to play with this month.  I totally loved it!

Be sure to visit my talented team mates at the 12 Kits of Occasions blog to see what they've created using Sharron's kit.  Be sure to leave a comment on the 12 kits blog for your chance to win a kit for May "Happiness is Homemade".  We also have a very dear to me guest designer who was the winner of Sharron's lovely kit, Marcia Hill of Marcia's Stampin' Pad.

I'll also be adding one of these cards to the following challenges:
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge ~ Anything Goes
Word Art Wednesday ~ Anything Goes

Thanks so much for visiting!  Blessings ~ Birgit

  9. You have given me so many ideas, Birgit, love every one of your sweet cards! So 'friendly'! Every one is unique and showcases Sharron's elements perfectly. that's what I love about playing with the kits, each of us brings 'us' to the creations.
    PS. You're not allowed to ever, ever come to CA without coming through the Central Valley and letting me know! You always have at least one friend here who would love to welcome you and your family! I hope you had a great time with your son. Is he in Northern, Southern or Central CA? Hugs, and hope all went well!
