12 Kits of Occasion ~ September

Hello ~ Can you believe the end of September is here already??  I love fall, but I'm not excited about all the cold and snow that comes after it and this season is flying by way to quickly.

This month we're keeping summer alive with a little help from Kim Heggins.  Her kit theme is "Under And Over the Sea" and all the images were new to me.  
So much fun coloring this little sunbathing beauty from MFT!  I wish I could be soaking up the sun today too!! (I'm also adding this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge)

These little critters from Otterly Awesome are so stinkin' cute!  I was inspired by a card made by my dear friend Kara but she had a frog floating down the river.
   I created a slider card for them so they could float lazily down the river together.  

I'm adding this card to the Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge.

It wouldn't be right to have a kit called "Under And Over the Sea" without a beautiful mermaid, right?  

This one has a heavy dose of Wink of Stella on her tail fins.  A heavy dose because my WOS pen leaked all over her!  Thankfully it stayed within the lines and I was able to spread it out fairly evenly.  

Be sure to visit the 12 Kits of Occasion Blog to see how my talented teamies were inspired to use Kim's darling kit.  She's also having a guest designer this month.  Joyce Merberg is a past 12 kits designer and is incredibly gifted when it comes to creating beautiful CAS cards so you must be sure to visit her blog as well.  You can find links to all the designers here.  Thanks Kim for a darling kit!!

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Birgit your cards are fabulous, as always. The girl on the floaty, clever paper to use for the water. The otters floating down the river is brilliant and your two mermaid cards are coloured beautifully.

  8. All are fabulous, Birgit! And your coloring looks so amazing. The WOS mishap turned into a blessing--love all that sparkle! Your scene with the otters is so precious and make even more special with the slider element. I've never seen river otters (except at the Zoo) but seeing sea otters in California was a highlight for me.

  10. Hi sweet friend! Just ahhhing every darling creation on your post. Oh those otters floating down the stream... too cute! Both mermaids shimmer so beautifully, we should all make mistakes in the future! And how clever to put all those little elements on flags above our floating sun worshiper. LOVE how you put her over the circle of water. Pattern paper to look like water, that is. Love and look forward to seeing what you do with your kits each month. Hugs!

  12. these are just adorable, the one I like the most is the otters going down the river. Your mermaids are so sweet too, so glad the pen leak didn't mess up your card and stayed on her tail, it sure has pretty sparkle!

  14. I think these are my favorite cards from any kit ever. I LOVE them all! I want my WOS pen to leak all over because the shimmer on the mermaid tails is so amazing. I love how you colored them! The otter card is amazing. Love how they can slide, and I adore that you turned the little images into a banner. I just love them all!

  15. Oh Birgit! I love these cute scenes you created like little post cards to the good life! The banner over the girl in the pool makes it a party. But the otters on a slider just floating down the lazy river is amazing! A treat to visit as always!
