12 Kits of Occasions: Spring Fling!!

Another month bites the dust ... but no where is there evidence of Spring here in my neck of the woods ... a few bulbs have popped their brave little greens, but not a bloom in sight - YET!  But now?  It's 12 Kits of Occasions time!

I promise there will be heaps of SPRING-y cards for you in our 12 Kits of Occasions blogs.  Michelle Leone is our host this month - she has thrilled me to no end with her CAS style and Spring Fling 'ingredients!'



Here are my cards ... grab a cuppa something, or a cold beverage, maybe lunch ... I may have gone overboard - again!

First up, a little card for Gretchen Michele's arrival home - soon,  is our prayer!

Before and after =]
 
thank goodness Tom left me one Cadbury Egg!
 
Next, a little birthday card for Gretchen's Mom who has so diligently been with her darling peanut every. single. day.  She has plenty to smile about, but thought one more would be good - it is her birthday after all:
 
 
Michelle gave us so many bunnies, I was beginning to think they multiplied en route!!!
 


This next one might be my favorite ... wish you were here to see the dimension I was able to achieve by 'planting' those carrots!  You may not know it, but Michelle is a carrot LOver!


You'll have to check out the supply list for this kit ... LOve this cover-plate:


 I'm saving this one for a later sentiment ...

 
Two more ... using these darling little bows that we all had a lesson on how to put it together ... thanks, Michelle!  Really wonderful video, and a super fab-u-lous kit!!!

 
I'll save this last one for my granddaughter's 'supposed to be birth day' in a few weeks:
 
 
I hope I didn't lose you along the way!  As always, thanks so very much for stopping by!
 
I'm hopping over to see all the wondrous cards I know my teamies have in store for us ... see you in the comment sections at The 12 Kits of Occasions team blogs! 

You'll find a list of all the goodies Michelle sent us at the 12 Kits Home page.

Oh, Michele! You amaze every single time! Your twine nest, flags going in opposite directions on your birthday card, adorable rows of bunnies, and multi-angled frames. I love love each and every detail. We must meet! I'm secretly (okay, not so secretly now) hoping that a hug will transfer some of your crafty genius to me. ;) Plus, the thought just makes me so incredibly happy and I'm keeping my schedule as wide open as I possibly can, so hopefully we can make this work!

Oh, these are all fabulous, Michele! But my favourite is the one with the bunnies and the carrots in the row -- it's so clever!

Barb Ghig said...

Oh Michele, what a BEAUTIFUL collection of cards...WOW! I love them all, but I think my fave is the one you created for Gretchen Michele! You really knocked it outta the park with that one, grammy :) Keeping her in my thoughts and prayers that she will be home very, very soon :)

Tracey McNeely said...

Michele your were a busy busy bunny with Michelle's kit--WOW, where to start! I guess at the beginning. I am not one to pick favourites but I have to say that your first card spoke right to my heart so many fabulous details and so pretty. Moving on You DIL I am sure loved her card and I am so glad to hear that maybe Gretchen will be coming home soon! Yup your bunnies definitely multiplied on cards 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7! Well done!

Sharron said...

WOW, so clever and cute and so beautifully done! Love every one!! I adore little Miss Ballerina! The orange peeking through the white scallops at the bottom made me think she had been sampling some of those carrots! You did such amazing things with all of those adorable bunnies. Love the 'let's up the Hoppy'!

TK said...

SOOOO many wonderful cards, Michele! I believe my fave has to be the first one for your little peanut! And you're right, that cover plate is FAB!
