Lets Hear It For The Boys!

Edited to add: that 12 Kits Of Occasions Alumni :Renee Lynch - It’s A Patchwork Life
Is also guesting with us this month, not sure how I missed that.

Thanks for the picture Kelly!

Welcome to the May Kits of Occasions! 
 Jeanne is the hostess, this month and she sent a wonderful masculine kit! Jeanne usually makes very fancy and colorful cards so this kit was full of surprises . Well, Jeanne can make anything and it always looks wonderful.

Look at all these fish , some are stamped in  two colors! Can you imagine stamping this many fish, for 14 ! 
I knew I was going to use every last one of them!

 Fun ,Poker Chips  from Serendipity Stamps .

 Hope my mom won’t see this card , we were not aloud to say this word. 
Sometimes when my husband apologizes to me he says: Sorry: you’re a brat! Yep thats an apology, but it makes us laugh and then we move on. I had to make this card for him! I cut some of the sentiments Jeanne sent and changed them up.  Perfect card for him don’t you think :)

We have two guest this month, please welcome :Richard Breaks - That’s MISTER Cardmaker, to you!! and Jill Norwood - Greenwood Girl Cards. Jill won the contest a few months ago. Welcome, Richard and Jill!

Don’t forget to stop by the 12 Kits Blog and see what all the designers have made. If you are new to the 12 kits all the info and supply list will be there. 
Thank you so much Jeanne, I enjoyed making all my cards/ 
Thanks so much for the visit! 
God Bless!

Thank You Teacher

I need about 6 more!  I think I will be changing the design.

Hello! Quick post, as I am on my way out the door soon.

 At first I wasn’t sure why there was not a stamp for the slide and swing then I looked a few of Papertrey Ink DT cards and saw that they just colored them in, I did the same with markers.Way easier than trying to stamp such a tiny image. 

Thank you so much for the visit today.

Muse Christmas

I love this fun garland from Serendipity Stamps!
Betty Wright made a beautiful card for inspiration . 

I forgot to post this and just getting it in under the wire. I have not made many
 Christmas cards yet this year, usually I’m about half way done, by now.
I use my Serendipity Stamps Ornament Pops Solid Cling Set for the garland, 
I love the way Betty used red on red sequins so I did the same.

Thanks so much for the visit today.

Do You Love Berries?

I Love all berries!
Hi, we have a new challenge with a darling strawberry tag that Lynn designed .
 I used blackberries and kept the two layer tag, like Lynn. 

  I added some Glossy Accents, after coloring with my Copic markers.  The second layer is
NOT black it’s  Blackberry Bliss from SU, and a vellum layer on the back.

For this little summery tag, I used this sweet little Blackberries stamp from Serendipity Stamps ! 
I so enjoyed this simple coloring. Hope you can play along. 

Thanks again for the visit to my blog.

Yellow Blooms

Ashley had some great tips on today's video.

 Hello. Happy Monday to you all! I happen to love Mondays but I don’t have to leave the house. 

I fussy cut my sentiment, popped up the cup and flowers with some foam tape. Simple card and I already had the flowers stamped and cut out. I went with yellow so I could also play along in: The Challenge. 
 We are so blessed to be enjoying some wonderful cooler weather here in Southern California.

Thanks so much for the visit!

Yellow is what inspired me.

Muse, Softie Storage And A Fox

Muse Challenge #117
 Hi friends!  I Card Everyone had a beautiful card over at the Muse challenge and I had to play along.

I used fun foam with adhesive already on it and some Deco Foil, no heat need. Just place the sticky side of the die face down and gently rub and that is it! I used my Poppystamps Maple Leaf Border and cut them out with fun foam. PPP Stitched Film Strip Die from Serendipity Stamps .

Softie # 2 for me can you tell its a fox, DH thinks its a cat. 

I used the wing to try and make the face fox like.

I thought I would share with you how I store my dies for the Papertrey Ink Softie Kit. With so many dies I did not want to lose any so I cut magnet sheets ( dryer vets covers from Home Depot) added the matching labels and placed them all in a Stampin Up stamp storage box . It works great for me and I also have the small stamp set in the same box . I added the total die on each label as well.

This is just a few pictures so you can kinda get the idea.

Thanks for stopping by and I know its kinda of a  miss mosh post. I just don’t have the time to do a separate one for each. I hope you have a great weekend.
