12 Kits of Occasions - Periwinkle Party!

Hi my friends!  Welcome to the grand finale for 2018 - our December installment from the 12 Kits of Occasions team!  Hope you have a few moments, while you prepare for bringing in the New Year, to spend some time with us!

Michelle Leone is our Hostess for December … her Kit? Periwinkle Party - so packed with goodness and bright fun papers to play cards with!   Thanks, Two Ls for this wonderful finale!  Take a peek...


So grab a cuppa, and here are my final 12 Kits of Occasions cards!  It has been such fun being a part of this fabulous group … thank you to Tracey, and the crew, for inviting me to join - has it been three years?  or four?  Yep, time flies when you've had as much fun as we have each month!  You won't miss me one bit when you learn that the fabulous Ms. Marcia Hill is joining the team! 

 "I'm so impressed by you!"
 
"The Boss always buys the drinks, right?"

"I don't give up an acorn to just anyone!"

 "All you do is just exactly what I need at any given moment!"
 
"Let's face it... it can't get much worse!"

 So that's just about it...I'll not say goodbye, my friends, just … be seeing you!

"Llama spell it out for you... THIS much!"

Oh Michele...FABULOUS cards and just loved all the inside sentiments! You are going to be SO missed on this team, but at least we all know where to find you! I think we all need your brand of humor to keep us going, so you can be sure we'll all be visiting regularly!! Glad we got to play together with this kit too...wasn't it FUN putting all those yummy papers together with the great images?! Thanks so much for the kind words and hope you have a happy and wonderful 2019 my friend!! :0)

I'm going to miss your witty sentiments and beautiful inspiration every month Michele. All your cards are fabulous! I'm glad I can still visit your blog and play "catch-up" with you. I'm still hoping that maybe someday.... ;0)
Happy 2019 my dear friend.

Well, I must say if you have to leave, you are going out with a big bang! These cards are fantastic. I'm sure your creativity and humor will be greatly missed by the other gals. Your cards here are beautiful, creative and oh so fun! Love the vibrant colors, too. Excellent work, SingleL! ;) Hugs!

~sigh... not saying goodbye, need to keep tabs on your clever wit and endless talent. It seemed easy to assemble the cards this month, didn't it? Every element just so perfect. And of course you took it up several notches. You've done such a pretty focus and framing of all those special papers. And for sure, I'll be stalking you...

Lisa Elton said...

Would you just look at those layers of loveliness! You sure know how to go out in style. I like the way you've glammed up the squirrel with those pretty papers and that llama poking his head out of the wreath just makes me smile. You might be leaving the 12 kits family, but you'll always be family to me. I know where to find you on the web and heck, I know where you live! XOXO

The team WILL certainly miss you, but I know Marcia will fill in nicely! I love seeing what you created here, as I did every month, and still remember my guest gig...so fun! All the little critters just make me smile, and the bright colors certainly cheer up this dreary day here in my corner of PA! Happy New Year, my dear! ♥

Wow, what an awesome grande finale! Love that you added one of your little inside sentiments for each one. Each is so lovely, from the gorgeous bloom with the embossed background to the sweet squirrel on the pretty pink. You know I will miss your takes on our kits but am reassured that I can visit here any time! Maybe we will be able to meet in person again soon! Sending hugs, dear friend!

As always so much gorgeousness, I really have to get my Hope flower out again and that fab squirrel makes my heart melt!

Bobby said...

You went out with a Bang!!, Michele. See you can use bright colors and patterned paper. ;)

Happy Dance said...

You've created a "bevy of beauties," Michele (hahahahahahaha). Seriously, they are just fantastic. Such an amazing array of designs. And these colors are incredible, too. Gotta love that little squirrel especially. I promise to give you a ring-a-ding-ding soon (DH has been sick...). We need a nice long catch up. Bev

TK said...

Great gaggle of cards, Michele! You're so awesome with the puns to match too! You go, Girl!!

Anita in France said...

A fantastic finale, Michele ... you put together images and fun punny sentiments so well! My particular favourites for this last hurrah ... that adorable little squirell ... and the cute, quirky llama ... they're both brilliant! Bonne Année, Bonne Santé! Hugs, Anita :)

I love these cards full of creativity and witty sentiments inside, Michele! I'm always impressed by how you use patterned paper - jazzing up the cards without looking busy. The llama card is especially cute with the message!
You'll be dearly missed on the 12 Kits' team, but I know where to find you. :-)
Happy New Year, my friend!
