Birthday Bliss ~ 12 Kits of Occasion ~ April

Good morning friends~  It's the end of the month so that means it's time for a group post for the 12 Kits of Occasion gals to post our projects using kits put together by one of our amazingly talented team mates.  This month's kit was hosted by the incredibly gifted Nancy Penir of Artful Notions.  Nancy is one of the most artistic crafters I know.  She's not afraid to try new techniques and the way she puts things together just blows my mind.  
Have a look at this fun filled birthday kit we were blessed with this month.

And now on to my cards:

I somehow managed to get some random adhesive onto the bottom of this stenciled panel that Nancy created and it ripped when I tried to remove the adhesive.  I thought I was going to have to throw it away but I'm so glad I didn't.  I simply cut some puffy clouds out of polka dotted vellum and placed the sentiment over the tattered spot.  You'd never know I almost ruined it.  PHEW!  

This pair of Pure Innocence Birthday Buddies were put onto two separate cards.  

Nancy sent the embossed background and I happen to have the same embossing folder so I got two cards for one. 

Nancy's kit was so easy to work with!  I feel like all my cards practically made themselves.  All I did was slap on some glue.  ;0) 

And look at this darling purse Nancy sent.  

Gosh!  This was so fun to put together.

I hope you'll visit the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how the rest of my talented team mates used Nancy's adorable kit.

Thanks for stopping by!

How FUN! You have created some awesome birthday cards. Love those sweet happy birthday balloon toting gals! And that purse is so darling! Truly a HAPPY Post! (tomorrow will be May lol)

Oh my gosh girl...I'm loving every single card you made and that purse just couldn't be any sweeter! Never even thought of using that polka dotted paper on the purse but it totally makes the purse perfect for a birthday gift!! And I absolutely LOVE how you did the 2 PI girls with their balloons...such simple cards but absolutely perfect! (along with perfect coloring too!!!!!!) Also, great save on the stenciled balloons card too! Don't you just hate it when something happens to a piece of a kit when you only have the one and can't just stamp or stencil another one?! The vellum cloud overlay worked just perfect and no one will ever be the wiser!! FABULOUS post my friend and isn't it a great feeling to have ramped up our birthday card stashes?!! Hugs. :0)
