12 Kits of Occasions


Lindsey of Occasional Crafter is our wonderful hostess this month ... her kit is all about Faith and Family, and she has made February look really good!  I'm loving the colors of Spring in her world!  Thanks, Lindsey - you've brightened my other-wise-dreary surroundings!

Armed with Lindsey's kit [every detail of it is shared with you at the 12 Kits blog] I was able to create so many cards ... many perfect for a friend in need of a little pick-me-up!  I've written a few inside sentiments that you'll find under each card ... hope you like them.

"Faith flutters by sometimes, and lands on your shoulder just when you need it most."

"... aren't I the lucky one who actually has one ... you!"

"Sometimes we just need to clear a few weeds to find it!"

"In a 'round-a-bout, shake-up-your-day kinda way!"

"Your kindness shone on me, when life had me in the shadows... thank you!"

"I do hope you know that... but I just wanted to remind you of it today!"

"... like Velcro!"
 
Thanks, my friends, for spending some of your precious time with me today ... hop over to our 12 Kits of Occasions blog for links to all the splendor my teammates have to offer!

Michele...so many wonderful and beautiful cards! My favorite is your sweet tag, just so cute and I love how you were able to add the sweet because word die, perfection! Your rose shaker is as cute as can be, such a clever use for that die! Really love them all!

Lindsey said...

Michele, oh, these are everything I hoped I would see and MORE! Your additional sentiments are icing on the cake. Your faith card blew me away, the lavender one is gorgeous (and I love what you added about the weeds...so true), your Friebd Lije You card is perfection, and I love that you used the Bookmark die on the last one because I actually meant to include that very die in my kit!! You have a magical way with cards and a magical way with words and both just make my heart so happy. Love you!

LeAnne said...

Wowza, these are bright and sassy too! Love the big pops of color...as well as the cool dies! What a great kit!

~sigh ... Michele does it again! Wonderful, wonders upon crafted loveliness. I'm going out on the preverbal limb and picking a favorite. The first with the electric blue and words of faith shows and says it all. You are amazing!
Wait, OK, love the second card too, cuz it reminds me of how special all of us friendlies are!
Have to give a huge nod to the sentiments inside too, brilliant!

ALL so wonderful! You make me want to head to my craft desk right now!

Lisa Elton said...

Okay, I was afraid of the bright blue, but look at you (my gray/neutral loving friend ~ I say that with love!) not only embracing it but knocking it out of the ballpark!! WOWZA girl!! These are all pretty and I always adore 'your' sentiments!

TK said...

Wow! These are all so beautiful, I'm loving each and every one! However! That hope one kind sticks close to my heart, and I love all your special sentiments!

Marybeth said...

I will say it again and again, Michele .... you and your blessed creative mind are AMAZING!!!!! Each card is a breath of fresh air and absolutely beautiful to the eyes and heart! You made Lindsey proud I am sure of it! My goodness!

Barb Ghig said...

As always, you've done an amazing job with your kit, Michele! I love every one of your cards and your tag is so clever and fun! I can see that the color palette in this kit is right up your alley, too...Perfect for Lindsey's spring theme!

TaeEun said...

The kit is wonderful and your cards even more!!! Love the unusual color combinations here!!!

Jeanne J. said...

Everything is so fresh and lovely here Michele! I love the "peek a boo" die cuts and elements nestled together. Even the little tag is perfection! I love the burlap twine with the cacti and that elegant pierced die cut tag!

Sharron said...

Wow, and you started out with a bright blue beauty! LOVE how you framed the pretty orange paper and added some sweet butterflies too. Every card is so beautifully done. And your tag is wonderful. Love the pot of succulents. Those are such fun images that I'm tempted to order some.

Anita in France said...

Your creativity never fails to amaze me, Michele ... what a gorgeous line up ... each one a beautiful showcase of your wonderful talent! I do love the addition of the supplementary sentiments inside each card ... so much love and thought has gone into each one ... and so much you! Hugs, Anita :)

Bobby said...

For a color-phobic you sure managed to make some beautiful and colorful cards, Michele. Sentiments are often the most difficult part of a card for me but you combine the outside and inside ones with ease.

Tracey McNeely said...

Michelle you made so many lovely cards using the same supplies but each is so different and unique. Of course you have your classic grey's in there and I love that you put the smaller succulents into,the big pot. Lots of eye candy. xoxo
