December Thank You!

Picture from Lindsey

 Hi there friends, long time no see! It’s been a very busy time at our house. 
Cant wait until next week to get back in the swing of things!
Welcome to the December 12 kits of Occasions!

Our sweet host of this month is Jessica Davis
I have so many beautiful papers left over for many 
more cards, thanks Jessica! Perfect time of year to make 
thank you cards!

On the card above I fussy cut the bear, added a heart from ;
Poppystamps, Grateful Heart Die Set and Stitched Divider. 
So sorry about the photos! 

Using my new Poppystamps die called Dotted Curve and 
stitched it up with the pretty silver string that Jessica 
included with the kit.

Im having trouble with PicMonkey, couldn’t edit my photos like I am used too. 
On a few of my cards I used a new die from Poppystamps called Stitched Divider. 

 Thank you for the visit ! 

Please stop by the 12 Kits blog to see what the other
Designers have created with the very same kit. HERE

I love the idea of stitching on cards and you did an incredible job. So happy you love your patriotic handbag, I had so much fun making it for you. My mom loves red white and blue just as much as you do so I made one for her too. Hope you put it to good use. Wishing you and your family a very Happy New Year!

  14. I love how you added the gold heart on the bear with the "heart of gold sentiment" that's so clever! Your designs are beautiful and elegant! The photography is gorgeous too Marybeth - love the reflection in the glass and the soft blurry backgrounds that dont distract from your photos.

  15. You started off with the sweetest card, I love that adorable bear!! You always amaze me with what you do with your Kits each month. One elegant and amazing cards after another!!

  16. Marybeth, I love that on the first card you took the sentiment literally and gave the bear a gold heart!! So sweet :) I love the paper you chose to go under him too, it has a nordic feel. The thank you card with the clear sequins is beautiful, you placed them in the perfect spot to make the sentiment pop! The stitched snow drift on the snowboarding penguin card is awesome! That extra little touch gives the card so much!
