12 Kits of Occasions - Here Comes the Sun!

Our sweet team-mate, Sharron Gregory, of On Papillon Wings, is our hostess this month!  OH my was her kit packed with pleasure!  You probably know by now that we list all the supplies on the 12 Kits home page, but here is a photo of her wonderful kit [thank you Lindsey!]:


Sharron and I share a love of a few winged things - butterflies [as her blog name suggests] and birds, and one day I'd love to walk in her gorgeous garden ... cheers to 'one day' wishes!

For Sharron:  I hope the dust settles soon so I can tag a few butterflies this year!

This gorgeous cardstock from the Sharron's kit, was embossed using one of my
new 8x12 inch embossing folders!  Doesn't it just set the stage for that beautiful winged specimen?
 
I sent a little message to Sharron after coloring this cutie:
I never thought I needed a Gecko in my life, but I just might!!!
 
Inside sentiment:
"Of course they would be the Saltwater Taffy, sticky kind of kisses -
my "ocean" is of the freshwater variety!  Wish you were here!!"
 
Another little 'peek a boo' frame for
this cute little bunny!
 
Love this perfect paper, for a darling sentiment!
 
Left this one un-colored, so the recipient can color it in her own fashion, and 'shake it up'  =]
Inside sentiment:
"It will color your world, as you color mine!"
 
Just LOVE these papers, Sharron!! and your fabulous die cuts, too!
Inside sentiment:
"Grey skies, or blue - all we need is each other, and a few ice cubes!"
 
I have so many more fabulous cards to create with the left-overs from this kit!!  Speaking of fabulous:  please visit every member of our 12 Kits club for a look at all the fun we have 'playing cards' together!
 
Thank you, Sharron - I've loved playing cards with you this month!  xxx

What a fun array of summer time cards, Michelle! I adore that gecko and think you've colored him perfectly!! I never thought I'd be wanting a gecko as much as I do now after seeing everyone's cute, cute card with him!!

Your style knocks me out! Each card, a beauty! And my favorite? Has to be the uncolored one, with the peek-a-boo sun! So elegant and fun too!

Oh Michele I always love seeing what you do with the kits - your whimsical style seals the deal every time and always a delight. Your little lizard hanging on a cliff... never saw that coming. I love the elegant embossed background for your butterfly and that you left the flowers on the last one un colored! Amazing as always!

I think it nothing less than amazing to see the wide variety of cards you all create from the kit. Your gecko is my favorite:)) and of course the gray floral with yellow!

I look forward to seeing what you create with your card kits, and I have to say, you have really knocked it outta the park this time, Michele! Beautiful embossing and coloring, and I LOVE how you kept the images B&W on your sunshine card...so clever!

Oh my goodness so much beauty in one place, Michele! I love your yellow and gray card, the shaker is elegant and darling all at the same time. You rocked this kit as you always do. We are so lucky to have you .

Joyce said...

What an amazing collection of cards. I love them all. The coloring is fantastic, and the uncolored one is also so fun. I love the idea of the recipient being able to color their own card. Your gecko is so cute--it looks like he is climbing the wall.

Sharron said...

LOVE what you've created with the kit, Michele! It's such a joy to see all the CAS beauties and then read your priceless sentiments for the inside. And I was anxious to see what you did with the grays. I found that pad of neutrals and instantly thought of you! Love your fun idea to do the shaker with uncolored blooms.

Cornelia (fun stamping) said...

Another parade of gorgeousness! Your first card already stole my heart on FB, but the chameleon is a close second!

Lindsey said...

Amazing as always! I felt the same way about the little gecko...loved him! Adore your creative layouts and added sentiments AND your added gorgeous embossing folders. Your first card is just stunning in its simplicity.

hazelspaperdesigns said...

SO, so, SO late, Michele! I am so sorry to be so tardy! You KNOW I love these 12 Kits... Crazy, disorganised life I lead... such beautiful cards. LOVE that EF you used in the first card?? Where is that from? Really WOW! These are all such fun! Your layouts are always so clever and thought-provoking, and truly, I can never wait to read your inside sentiments... enjoy the sunshine your way. Windy and cold out ours. About time though. We can't hog it all year! ;-)

The Paper Parade said...

Michele, wow! I need to jump on this shaker card wagon...I just love what you created! How cool that the sun is in the shaker and the white flowers surrounding it really make the shaker part pop! Loving the card with the circle frame surrounding the sentiment...that is such a clever idea, and then the pink circle behind the hula girl really makes her stand out, I love that paper behind her!

Tracey McNeely said...

Oh where to start, so many beautiful cards with Sharron's kit Michele. Of course the very first card with the gorgeous embossed background, I love that it is grey! The cutest gecko ever and coloured perfectly, your sweet hula girl and sweet little bunny, unique shaker and I relly love how you left some of the elements uncoloured! All fabulous!

Petra Swart said...

Oh, my, Michele, what stunning cards you have made with the kit!!! Fabulous butterfly against a wonderful rose embossed bg..., a sweet as can be little gecko (I love them - we've got a lot over here!!!)..., a pretty little hoola girl sending saltwater kisses..., a cutie little bunny with a lovely flower pot..., a fun green grass card with lovely bright pink accents..., a clever shaker with images for the receiver to colour and a card having me wanting to bring the ice cubes and enjoy the sunshine with you!!!! Oh, you are so talented, my friend!!!! Really love what you have done here and so enjoyed every card and the cute inside sentiments!!!! All just great!!!
