The 12 Kits of Christmas

This is the kit Renee sent us. It was so
 fun to receive  such an amazing kit!

Hi I am so excited to tell you about this fun Christmas group Cathy and Joyce
 asked me to be in. Renee and Suzanne wanted to get a jump on Christmas cards for next year.  They thought it would be fun to make them all year and formed this group of 12. The 12 Kits of Christmas We will each host a month , and send out kits.
 We will all make something using at least 4 items from the kit, and make at least one card.
 This kit was so over the top , I made many cards and posted 4. This is such a talented
 group of card makers , I am very humbled to be included. Please stop by their blogs and see what they have made. Renee has some blog candy for those who visit each blog and leave a comment. I posted all the names and links at the bottom of this post. I made my little wreaths using a little flower punch and glued them close together I learned how to make them from KittieKraft, I used different punches , she has a wonderful blog with amazing inspiration and ideas.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Take Care

First card I came up with , Love this window
