12 Kits of Occasions - Garden Party!

February is my favorite Winter month ... guess why?  Because it's the shortest!!!  We also had fewer days to wait to play with our 12 Kits of Occasions team!!

Michelle Leone is our Host this month!  and who better to have a theme called "Garden Party?"  Two Ls, as I have always called her, sent us the prettiest little packet of garden variety gorgeousness... enough with the chit chat ... let's get this party started!!

Here is a tiny peek into Michelle's kit:

Thanks, Lindsey, for the photo!
 
You'll soon see that I've barely made a dent in it, but here goes - beverage ready?
 
"It doesn't get more beautiful than that...at any age!
 Happy birthday, gorgeous!!!"
 
"For a very HOPPY, and blessed, Easter!"
 
 
"Hope yours is blooming awesome!"

 
"You're always there as my shelter from any storm!"


"For a moment, this nest didn't feel empty at all!"
 
Last of all, and perhaps the quickest card I've EVER made!

 
 "Life is too short to have it any other way!"
 
With that I leave you ... perhaps you've stopped by from the 12 Kits of Occasions blog ... if not, please do head over there!
You won't bee-lieve your eyes...

Sweet! What a delicious lineup of sweetness here Michele! All of your cards just sing of the joy of spring! I love the rolling flower hills on the bunny card and the wonky layers on the happy spring card. All of your cards are super amazing!!

Karen said...

What a wonderful array of spring cards you've created from this lovely kit! I love that last one--simple but striking, and the bunnies in the garden are simply adorable!

OMGosh Michele, that is a beautiful kit indeed! I am loving all the cards you have make with it so far. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor after looking at them all! My favorite is your quick card, I just think that is so dang cute!!! Love that bee paper! I also think that one thanks card is so unique in the way the thanks cut out. Been wanting a stamp that say's "be you (tiful). I think that is such an awesome phrase! Such fun dies cuts on these cards as well, I think you had a lot of fun creating these! Hugs, Brenda

Hi Michele! Beautiful cards for us today (as always!) Love your thinking .. the little twine string for the bird cage.. the THANKS with the under laying pattern peeking out and the umbrella nested between the letters and OMG.. the fields of flowers and bunnies! A treat as always! I love your clever mind! (and yes a little jealous too!)

Nora N. said...

Oh I LOVE to see these kit posts!! I LOVE the first card with the tape to "hold" the tag!! Loving the wonky way you put the panels on the "Happy Spring" card and the cute little string you used on the bird cage. Such fun cards!!!

Kim Heggins said...

Wow...seriously where do I start? So many incredible creations from that wonderful hanging bird cage to your floral field of sweet bunnies! Love how you used that sweet umbrella, it is ready for a spring rain! Fabulous cards my dear....love them all!

Lisa Elton said...

There is some serious fabulousness happening here!! I didn't use the polka dot tag or the bird, So I'll be CASEing that delightful card. I'm completely smitten with the bunnies tucked in among the scalloped borders and flowers. That card is my favorite. I like that we used the same papers with the birdcage!!

donna mikasa said...

You always ALWAYS rock the kits! Love everything--even the "quickie"!

Sharron said...

I love what you created using the little critters! Are you surprised!! Fun idea use the twine for a hanger. Your bunnies look so adorable! Is that a puffy tail I see? I knew I had to use all three and you managed to keep them all together, definitely a 'happy' card! Plus you used both scalloped borders too!! Fabulous collection all around!

Kathy Mc said...

What a fun post, Michele! All of your cards are awesome, including your quickie. Love the bunnies with the flowers and that adorable little bird in the cage! Such a fun Garden Party - bring on Spring.

Each one of these cards is just gorgeous and what a fabulous way to showcase those pretty patterned papers!

Anita in France said...

Well that was a lovely lunchtime intermission, Michele ... scrolling up and down all these gorgeous cards enjoying all the perfect details that make them so you! Among others, the fluffy bunny tail, the delicate frame die cut, the tiny drops of rain on the brolly ... the latter's my favourite BTW ... such a cool look with the DP behind that fabulous die cut 'thanks'! Hugs, Anita :)

Michelle said...

Oh my.... swooning here! Each little masterpiece more lovely than the last! Such a beautiful blend of color, pattern and texture. LOVE, love card #1.... you've used all of the elements SO perfectly!

Tracey McNeely said...

Michele all such sweet cards! I love that you always use it all (the washi tape!) to give that little extra special touch. You use of the patterned paper and the still CAS feel is wonderful! I may need to CASE a few of these!

Marybeth said...

As always, you've done an amazing job with your kit, Michele! I love how you played with the bunnies and birds, not to mention all those fabulous sentiments...WOW! Now, I'm really looking forward to spring...Thank you!

Lindsey said...

Michele, you seriously are the best. Boy is hallmark ever missing out not having you write their card sentiments. I adore how you used Mixhelle's kit, especially the bunny card with the fabulous layer of hills. So SO brilliant! And your pairing of products is so fabulous. Really love the card with the Eah Thanks dies as well.

Jeanne said...

What a delightful array of cards you were able to make from that one kit. Now that is fantastic. I adore that first one with the sweet bird. All of them looks fabulous, however. Fun, fun, fun!

Bobby said...

You put your magic touch on everything, Michele, and even included the inside sentiments. They are all fantastic!!!
