The 12 Kits of the Holidays - April







Welcome to this month's edition of The 12 Kits of the Holidays. We are shifting gears back to Christmas this month with our hostess Sharron Gregory from On Papillon Wings.  She  provided us with a gorgeous kit loaded to the max with fabulous papers, stamps and embellishments.  
Look at all the fabulous goodies in her kit:






I created 5 cards for today's post and I have lots of goodies left over for CASEing the other girls.
I hope you enjoy the hop this month.






I used this week's RetroSketch for this card.












We hope that you take the time to go have a look at what the rest of the group has to inspire you.
Have a great day and we will see you next month for the 12 Kits of Holidays when Sharron is our April hostess.
