The 12 Kits of Occasions

You read that right--I'm joining in this month as Lisa's Guest Designer for The 12 Kits of Occasions--what an honor!  Gotta admit--it was a bit nerve wracking as I didn't want to mess up any pieces of the beautiful Sweet Pea kit.  I managed to pretty much fix my coloring goofs & have 4 cards to show you today with more to come.
I'm entering SSS Wednesday.
I'll be sending this to a blogging friend for her birthday, so I'm entering CCCB.
I'm entering Word Art Wednesday.
I'm entering my shaker with the faux stitching at SSS Monday.
Long post & pretty self-explanatory.  I actually colored the 2nd & 3rd cards with Copics--yah! My little girl's mom keeps her covered with sunscreen--haha! Someday maybe I'll try coloring skin.  Next, though, I want to try coloring flowers.  The shaker window is made from one of the glassine envelopes Lisa used to hold pieces of the kit & I really like the look which is very different from using acetate. Thank you so much, Lisa--I loved creating with your darling kit!  Be sure to check out the 12 Kits Blog for lots of inspiration from the very talented DT & 2 giveaways! Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  35. GRETA! My Feedly feeds have been wonky of late, so I'm starting here, which is the most 'recent' of the 'latest'! Again, apologies for falling behind! Super congratulations on your GD role with the 12 Kits; what an array of fabulous cards you've designed from the kit! Your little girl, sporting sunscreen *grin*, is especially darling!
    Hugs~c
