12 Kits of Occasions ~ April 2017!


Hello! What better way to say good-bye to April than with a team post from the 12 Kits of Occasions! Sharron is our hostess this month providing us with an adorable April kit called {Hello, friend). She has also invited a special guest to join in our fun. Please stop by to give a big warm welcome to Marcia Hill!


My first card will be set aside for little Sweet P to give her mommy on Mother's Day. Some of her own coloring inside along with her little fingerprint will finish it off!



Aren't they a darling pair! I put to use my Pretty Pink Posh and Mama Elephant (how appropriate!) dies.


I water colored these birds to coordinate with the papers.



This kitty was water colored with pencils given to me by our son for Christmas! I even gave her a sweet sparkly pair of shoes! The scalloped frame is Pretty Pink Posh.



And finally, these elegant cats were made for each other! More PPP border dies were used on the matting.

That's it from me. 
I'm off to see what the team has done with the kit.
Care to join me?

Oh, every one is so wonderful, Lisa! Sweet P's card couldn't be sweeter and her mama will adore the personalized one. Love how you colored the kitty too, and with her sparkly shoes she looks so adorable! And I'm so happy to see how you used the patterned papers. I always struggle with that and you do such a great job. Love the one kitty peeking through on the last card!

Lisa, I LOVE the card you made for your sweet P to give her mommy! Oh that darling elephant pair with those perfectly wonderful dies, and your expert coloring... she'll treasure it! I notice you even used the sparkly sheer fabric, something I didn't fit in. Always inspired by your endless talent!

I am slow getting around again. One darling card after another.I LOVE the card that Sweet P helped you with for her mama, it makes my heart swell. Your colouring is wonderful and as usual you chose great dies to use along with the kit and thought of things I didn't, perhaps I need to start earlier. Fabulous my friend!
