12 Kits of Occasion ~ September "Friends & Food"

Hello everyone!  Quite unbelievably, it's the end of September so you know what that means.....  
It's time for the 12 Kits of Occasion posts!
Kim Heggins was our hostess this month with her kit titled "Friends & Food" and it was filled with pure sweetness as you can see in the photo below.  

Kim has an amazing eye for color and prints and I just love her CAS style.  I tried to channel my inner "Kim" as I was making these cards.  Thanks Kim, for this super cute kit!!  

This card just makes me want to bake and now that cooler weather is here, I have no excuses not to.

Love these donuts from Mama Elephant!  I added the sprinkles with fine tip markers.

This sentiment that Kim included in the kit stands alone.  I simply added a leafy frame from Tutti Designs that I watercolors using Zigs.

The last two cards are simple heart shaped Valentine cards that I made similar to the mid-century style of Valentines, when it was popular for adults to send them to each other. 

 I drew the face on the toaster and added Glossy Accents to the pop tart.

Aren't these fun?

I'm so glad you took time to visit my blog today.  I hope you'll visit the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how all my talented teamies were inspired by Kim's super fun kit.

Thanks for stopping by!
