Guest Designing for 12 Kits of Occasions

Sunday, August 31, 2014

I received the most wonderful email from Kara last month asking if I would like to be a guest for August's 12 Kits of Occasions post. I said yes in a heartbeat. I think their group is such a fabulous idea and was just thrilled to get the invitation. Thank you so much Kara for asking me to play along and for your most generous kit.

Kara sent the most wonderful kit that included many die cuts, papers, stamped images, and even a stamp set.  Click here to get a list of all the kit ingredients.  I made several cards because I was just having so much fun. You  will also want to check out the blog for a chance to win a fun surprise from Kara.
Here are my cards. Warning, this is a long post with several photos.







Thanks again Kara for inviting me to play along!
