12 Kits of Occasions - June 2018


Thanks for coming by today... I have the extreme pleasure of being the Host of our June 12 Kits of Occasions! 

I put together a Kit full of things that speak Sum-Sum-Summertime - to me, anyway!  Independence Day, Parades, beach time, and friends!  Here are my cards … first up:
 
I love a parade!

"Girl, you've still got the beat!"

 "Go ahead... toot your own horn!"
 
Fireworks still give me chills!
 
 "Go ahead - take that bra off -
let it all hang out on your birthday!"
 
 "I sure hope you see a few fireworks this birthday -
if you know what I mean!"

There's nothing like Beach-time!
 
"Life's too short - jump in, and enjoy every wave!"
 
"Cowabunga! another birthday??"
 
Last, but perhaps the most fun of all … this card is for my friend who is joining me in an adventure in September... where we're going, it will still be warm enough for the beach!!
 

"I cannot wait to fly away, can you!"
 

Thanks, so very much for stopping by today!  Now!  won't you join me as I visit my 12 Kits of Occasions friends?  The fun starts here... you won't believe your eyes!

Absolutely awesome kit and fantastic cards made from it. Wow! Love the sum-sum-summer time theme and the bright and happy feel of each card. You did an amazing job of them. I got a couple of new ideas for the MFT Marching Band set. Thanks! Love it! Hugs!

Wow Michele, you pulled together this kit?!! You are to talented my friend! I love, love, love each and everyone of these cards. They are so cute but it is the insides that I love. You are so clever with sentiments. I think you should have your own stamp line! Oh goodness, you and your friend must being going south! Florida perhaps??? Have a wonderful time where ever you are going my friend! Hugs, Brenda

Marge said...

Wow Michele! So many wonderful cards that I would love to CASE 😍😱❤ I especially love everyone, lols! Love the MFT mice cards and how you made ocean with blue ribbon. Sun of the Beach card is my favorite today! I once thought of similar design but I didn't know how to go with the lower part of the card on which you gave a fun clue to me with your card ;)

Have a good day!
Marge

Sharron said...

Sending you hugs wherever you are and thanks for such an amazing kit! Hope you're enjoying every minute of your adventure. Playing with your kit was such a joy! I think we all had many smiles this month. Love seeing it from your prospective now. The girly bunny band couldn't be cuter. And the red, white and blue beauty is perfect. Those die cuts are so cool! Your ribbon sea is probably the most creative element. Gosh, there's so much inspiration--so glad I have lots of leftovers! Have a fun and safe 4th!!

Michelle said...

Many thanks for such a wonderful beach-y, star spangled little kit...... great patterns, lovely stamped images (THE cutest little marching mice and beach kids!) and great embellishments!
As always, you've created a fabulous collection of cards, full of beautiful detail!
Wishing you a happy 4th!

Anita in France said...

I'm always charmed and inspired by your 12 kits cards, Michele ... even more so this time as it's your kit! Each one is clever, brilliantly designed, crisply executed and fun! My favourite? I'm rather fond of the floral/pink marching band ... though I guess you'll know which big eared chap stole my heart! An new adventure in Septmber ... so exciting! Hugs, Anita :)

Lisa Elton said...

Leaving you this knowing you are on the road with your #1 guy! Your kit was so darn cute and brought back SO MANY fond memories for me ~ THANK YOU!!! Now about these cards. Your band of girly mice are darling all decked out in their pink finery! You won my heart with the polka dot celebrate freedom card. And that ribbon serving as your water for that sweet beach babe is too clever. Fabulous cards all around!

Lisa Elton said...

Wait...bunnies...not mice!!!

donna mikasa said...

I don't have to tell you which one's my fave (it ends with a "beach"). Your 12 Days cards are always a treat for the eyes! Love them all.

Ivana Camdzic said...
