12 Kits of Occasions - March 2018

Here we are, the end of another month!  The best ending to any month calls for the gathering of the 12 Kits of Occasions team - now, who could ask for more?


Jessica Davis, of The Paper Parade, is our Host this month ... she's gifted us with the most wonderful collection of papers, and darling little images to Copic color, too!

Without further ado... I've chosen just a few of my favorites to mix n match... thanks, Jessica!! 

"you're quickly becoming my favorite!"
 
Jessica sent oodles of wonderful sentiments... but!
Sometimes I like to save them for an 'as needed' occasion!
 
"or is it MY good looks?  Either way, thanks, honey bunches!"

"There's no one I'd rather share my wishes with!"
 
"... shot to the heart!"

Well, my friends, that's it for me today ... hustle over to the 12 Kits of Occasions blog for a looky loo at the abundance of brilliance from my teamies!  You'll find a list of supplies from this month's kit from Jessica, too!

BTW team... I'll be a bit tardy with my praises this month!  Tom and I are headed South for Hurricanes, and Beignets!

A beautiful, colorful array of loveliness!! You've used the patterns in the prettiest ways....and I especially love the little polar bear pair on the lovely lavenders (and the perfect snippet of gold thread)!
Enjoy your trip south! If you're going where I think you are, be sure to look into dinner at Jacques-imo's (http://jacques-imos.com) and tell Jacques (Tony's cousin!) that we sent you! Safe travels!

Hurricanes and Beignets! You better be safe!! What a way to spend Easter! Sending you prayers for safe journeys Michele! Wonderful cards! I smiled at each sentiment under every photo! Your girl in blue is unexpected but totally works She reminds me of an anime character and the owls couldn't be cuter. I think we were in sync with the bears looking at the stars! Super cute!

Nora N. said...

Oh I LOVE how you mixed the papers on your cards!! Your coloring is so fabulous too. I LOVE the first card with the blue haired girl!!

Lisa Elton said...

Your worked your magic with those little owls, so dang cute! And the little bear reaching up to the star...LOVE!! I couldn't figure out how to make that image work (insert head smack!), now I know! Wishing you and Tom a safe, and amazing vacay. Wishing you both a Happy Easter.

Your cards are so much fun!!! I love your sweet little lady sitting there all decked out in blues and greens, so sweet. I love that you used that same color scheme on your fist several cards, so beautiful. Your final card is too darn cute with that sweet bear shooting that arrow, so fun! Happy Easter to you and your family!

Honestly, Michele, you are like some stamping goddess. Your ideas tickle me silly with all the ideas on each and every card! You used the fun papers to perfection, even matching the little girl's hair! The owl cards are so much fun, love the coloring. and bear duo are too sweet. Of course the bear cub is my fav, we both added arrows to our designs, so I feel connected to your creative genius. Hugs and Have a wonderful blessed Easter!

You were so creative with your new design papers and cute copics colored images, Michele. I loved the fun sentiments too. I loved every one of your sweet cards. TFS and do have a wonderfully relaxing trip. Hugs..

Bobby said...

Wonderful coloring to go with those colorful papers, Michele. I bet you know which ones I love best. ;)

Sharron said...

Oh, how fun to see how you used the same colors on the first three cards! The little girl with blue hair is adorable! Love the added touches of stitching. The bears and star are just precious. The purples are so pretty. I especially adore your arrow shooting bear--awesome design and fabulous coloring! Hope you all are having fun and staying safe on your journeys!!

TK said...

Great group of cards, Michelle! I'm sure you'll showcase those sentiments perfectly, as always!

Birgit said...

What fun these cards are! I adore all your sentiments and how perfectly thought out they are. The owls are delightful and I just love the sentiment you paired them with. <3 Have safe and happy travels my friend!

Barb Ghig said...

What a fabulous collection of cards, Michele! Once again, you have out-done yourself with creative designs and clever placement of all those darling images...I'm so impressed with your Copic coloring, too!

Tracey McNeely said...

Michele so many beautiful and sweet cards! I love how your cards fall into two colour schemes and yet the cards you made with them are so uniquely different. There are a couple that I still have supplies left to case you on. Love the way you coloured the images, love the bears reaching up to the star and the bear shooting the arrow into the sun! All fabulous.

Ivana Camdzic said...

Ohhhhh Michelle! These are all so very beautiful and sweet!! I just hopped over to Lisa's blog too, and I am loving how you girls used the sweet little images! Your coloring is so awesome and I love the tones you picked for the sweet girl and the adorable owls!

The Paper Parade said...

Michele, how bold, how beautiful! I love how you used non traditional colors to color the owls and the little girl, they look amazing! I also love the sweet little jewel accents you put on the owls in the 3rd card, and the way you made use of teeny tiny scraps for the birds to stand on in the second one. I adore the bear one where they are reaching toward the sky, I have to recreate that one for sure! And how cool that you have the bear shooting the arrow right to the heart, and I love how you cut the circles out from one patterned paper to use on another. So creative this month! I hope you're enjoying your trip :)
