12 Kits of Occasions - Bye Bye Birdie!



It's the last day of the month!  For me that means time for the 12 Kits of Occasions!!   The 12 kits is a group of 12 friends (well... right now there are 11) and we each take turns putting together a "kit" of supplies for the group.  Our hostess this month is Sharron Gregory from On Papillon Wings, and the theme this month is "Bye Bye Birdie".  I couldn't think of a better person for this month's theme,  because when I think of Sharron I always imagine her in her garden of day lillies, enjoying the outdoors and watching the birds.  She is a nature lover - and birds always seem to find their way into her designs and kits.  I even remember seeing photos of a little feathered family taking up residence in front of her house! I could almost hear the smile in her voice when I read about them!    Sharron gave us a very generous supply of beautiful pattern paper, stamped images, and oh so many beautiful die cuts of all different types of birds.. .seagulls, cranes, sand pipers, finches!   You can see a complete list of all the ingredients on the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog!   I made 6 cards so I will get right to it... 
I added this sentiment from Serendipity Stamps to stamp on the patterned paper.

Now if you want to see how the rest of the team used these same ingredients you can click on their name to jump to their blog, or you can hop on over to the 12 Kits of Occasions Blog and see a preview from each designer.   We have a new team mate joining us this month. I hope you will give a welcome to  Michele Ferguson  from  I Card Everyone Blog.

We also have a special guest joining us this month - she was the winner from the comments left on the blog last month! Taunya Butler from Daisies Girl Blog.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Jeanne, your cards reflect the joy of the sweet words you used to describe this month's theme. I can feel Spring through each beautiful creation! Even those adorable penguins are celebrating eventual sunshine!

You always rock these kits, Jeanne, especially with color! I just remembered 12 Kits has a Pinterest board, thank goodness, because I've been pinning as I've been hopping and you've made even MORE cards I'd love to CASE! Hugs, Darnell

I just love how well you work with your patterned papers. I find myself getting stumped by so many of mine, but I love them all!
These cards are elegant and charming, flights of fancy that land perfectly.

What a fantastic assortment of cards, Jeanne. You used so many supplies I did not even get to, so thank you for all those fantastic ideas for CASing. And, you cleared up a mystery for me--those partial birds that I had no idea what they were.

Oh all the colors...you must have been in Heaven with Sharron's papers! GORGEOUS card with the layered sunshine and the bird silhouettes, and oh how I love your yellow and black birds with the pale blue in the background! Those tall birds get me every.time. I love them in red and yellow! And last but not least, those sweet penguins skating around...next time mine are getting pink cheeks, TOO! Amazing as always, Jeanne J!
