  6. Oh, Marybeth--this was such an awesome kit, and of course, you have THE most amazing cards from it. Oscar was right about the raindrops. They are the perfect touch, and lucky for me, I saved that little guy. I love all the cards you made--and now I ahve ideas for some of the papers and images I saved. Brilliant to add all those white dots and sequins to your colored flower card.

  11. wow all of these cards are amazing.. lovely coloring.. awesome designing.. love them all..

  12. Marybeth first off that you so much for the gorgeous kit! You were not kidding when you said we were thinking alike on the bird card, I just ran and popped tiny scallop insert into the frame on my card because it looks so awesome on yours. You colouring is fabulous and I just love every single one of your cards my friend!

  13. Marybeth, this was one amazing kit, thank you so much! I had a blast playing with all your fabulous ingredients too. Wow, you made so many amazing cards, I just don't know where to start. Your all pink card is my favorite one, it almost makes me want to learn to color but with that pink gingham background, the stitched edge from Lil Inkers and all those amazing sequins, this is so stunning! Your thank you card is wonderful too and so clever to use three different thank you's, just so sweet. Really Marybeth, they are all wonderful and you out did yourself with your kit, loved every piece of it!

  14. Thank you for your sweet comment this evening. We're fine. All storms were south of us. Gosh, those poor people in Oklahoma have had more than their share of grief! And thank you so much for the awesome kit. I loved everything and it was such fun to try so many things i don't have. Loved the flowers, the soup set and of course that adorable owl! Your cards are amazing--knew they would be! Love how you so beautifully used the bold papers as backgrounds on several. Great color combos and your pink flowers are so gorgeous!

  15. Your set of cards is fabulous Marybeth! Love the designs and variety. I'm a new follower, looking forward to see your next creations. Have a blessed weekend.

  16. Beautiful, beautiful cards, Marybeth - I love them all! Such lovely colors and delightful images, I bet you had some fun making all those. ;-) Your fusion card is adorable. I love the little raindrops you found to add. Thanks so much for playing along with our Fusion challenge this week. ;-)

  17. Fabulous kit and of course you rocked it Marybeth! One surprise after another, the framed paper, the sequin flower centers with and the blue sentiment. and OMG! The pink flowers with the white pearl accents ? Drooling here!!

  20. Marybeth, this kit was SO awesome! I really loved working with it and you sure did show off the many different options in your post :) My absolute favorite card is the sweet little boy with the umbrella and the polka dot paper :) But the way that you made all the flowers pink on the floral card is beautiful! And who doesn't love that sweet soup can??

  21. Perfect FUSION card Marybeth, FABulous kit too :)

    Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp challenge.


  23. What a great collection of beautiful creations!

    Thanks so much for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge!

  24. Marybeth, I have plans to spend some more time with this kit over the weekend, and you've inspired several new ideas! I especially adore your circle frame with the bird paper and the way you've colored all of those gorgeous flowers. The white accents on the pink version look amazing! And that sweet little boy under the umbrella is wonderful--love the crisp black frame and polka dots to evoke rain drops. Thanks for a wonderful kit this month!

  25. I am SO sorry I have not been over to comment and thank you for your amazing kit this month! I just loved working with every piece of patterned paper and sequin! Such fun, unique images for us to try out, TOO!!

    That pink garden!!! I just love it in one color like that with all of the pearl and sequin accents. I had such fun working with those images, they may find their way to my house. Your little guy is so sweet with the soft coloring and the mini raindrops. Your little soup can and bowl are perfect on the lace "tablecloth"...eek I was so scared to use that, it's so pretty! And the single stem flower with it's pretty striking against the simple background with the touch of pink gingham. I was so proud of myself when I actually CUT that paper, hee! Thanks again, Marybeth!! XO


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love it when you do!
Take care.
