12 Kits of the Holidays - May Edition

 It's time for the 12 Kits of the Holidays!  Just to refresh your memories the 12 Kits is a group of 12 designers.  We take turns supplying the group with a kit of supplies once a month.  We all get the same things and and the end of the month we compare and see what each other has made..


Our hostess this month is Marybeth from Marybeth's Time for Paper Blog.  She focused on making a kit with Get Well, Thank You and Thinking of You  sentiments and images.  Look at this amazing kit she put together for us.....paper from My Mind's Eye, Stamps from Serendipity, WPlus9 and Lil Inkers.  I loved everything she put in here!  This was the first time that I messed up coloring one of the images and Marybeth was quick to send me out a replacement and help me save face!  This kit also convinced me that I absolutely needed the Lil Inkers Rain Boy - and he is already safe and sound here at home!  I'm going to keep this short and sweet because I made lots of stuff this time and I'm photo heavy here!
 


 Well was that fun or what?  Check out what the rest of the team made!  Just click on their names below!




Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!!

Jeanne

Yes, that was fun...absolutely FUN and talk about the coolest concept for a crafting team! I love the idea of each using all the same things and comparing at the end. TOO AWESOME. Your cards are spectacular, all of them, BUT my two favorites would have to be the blue polka dots and the soup can...ADORABLE!!!! :D Thanks for the picture heavy post, those are always the best when I can drool over your work.

Wow Jeanne--you really made some beautiful things with this kit. I love all your cards--there are so many great layers, details, and extra touches. Now I know what to do with that cutie pie and his umbrella. I saved him thinking I'd see a better idea here than what was running through my head.

Cathy Weber said...

Beautiful colouring Jeanne! Those SS images are so pretty. You used the patterned paper perfectly on all cards and I love how you created an aqua mist stitched mat behind that circle frame--brilliant! So much eye candy!

Sharron said...

Wow, those flowers are incredible--beautifully colored and just gorgeous! Love your charming umbrella card --so perfect with the rose paper and lace. And aren't you clever to create two totally different, but equally great, cards with the Lil' Inker guy. All the details on your last card were a wonderful way to end your amazing post. You really rocked this kit!!

Jeanne, the flower card is perfect! I just love the button centers and the gorgeous bouquet you colored :) Then the two little boy cards, so sweet! I like how the second one is stamped on patterned paper, and I really love how you put the soup and bowl in the frame...that looks awesome!

Amy Kolling said...

Just wonderful Jeanne! Each card has it's own wow factor but I love the last one with the unexpected pop of red with all the pink! I love this card!!!

Christina said...

I can hardly believe we used the same kit, Jeanne! Your cards are just incredible, every single one. Gorgeous coloring of those flowers on the first one, and I love the beautiful frames you used for the other images. I think my favorite is the monochromatic blue one--perfection!
