The end of September..... where did the time go? The older I get, the faster time flies. It's the end of the month so you know what that means.... It's time for our 12 Kits of Occasion post. This month was Kim Heggins turn, from Cupcakes, Card and Kim to host, and her adorable kit was the perfect ode to summer, titled Light Houses.
Anyone who knows Kim, knows that she likes color. Her kit's are always filled with the cutest papers and images and this kit was no different. Loaded with paper from Doodlebug and the most adorable pirate Koala's and light house images, I just couldn't get enough! I'll jump right in to my cards:
This sailboat paper captured my heart the moment I saw it. I knew it would pair perfectly with the larger sailboat image and this "punny" sentiment.
Did I mention that I think this paper is adorable?? I've never seen these darling Koala images. They're from Create A Smile, All Hands On Deck. Super cute!!
Thanks Kim for such a fun kit! I have plenty of leftovers to make lots more cards.
I hope you'll stop over to the 12 Kits of Occasion blog to see how my talented team mates were inspired to use Kim's kit.
Thanks for stopping by!
Birgit, you nailed it with these 3. Paired the stamped images with papers that told the whole story. Well done, my friend. Loved the koala on the sea map paper especially. Perfect!!! Looking forward to October and your visit!ReplyDelete
Birgit your cards are so delightful, wasn't Kim's Kit such a fun way to end summer? Love your colouring, I was having some technical difficulties colouring my images--Lol once you commit with ink it's too late to change! I see we were on the same wavelength with a couple cards. Hope you are doing well. ~hugsReplyDelete
Brilliant how you added the background papers to complete the scenes! I love the little guy on the map "crab cove" - smiling here! Your sail boat in a regatta with the other boats, and the waves around the lighthouse! Wonderful!ReplyDelete
Three FABULOUS cards my friend!! I'm jealous that I didn't get the sailboat dsp...that makes such a CUTE card!! And the sentiment goes perfectly with it too!! And I love how you added the little Koala with the spy glass to the scenic dsp...never even thought to do that and am kicking myself for using the other side! And your lighthouse card is just beautiful!! Lovely, lovely cards my friend and Kim is going to love everything you created!! Well done Birgit!! Hugs. :0)ReplyDelete
