A Whimsical Garden - March '19

It's the last day of the month and time for this month's post for The 12 kits of Occasions
I know I say this every month, but wow is time every going fast!

Our hostess this month is Lisa Elton, My Paper Tales, and she sent us the most delightful kit full of just what we all need---some springtime goodness! Lisa sent us all the most beautiful patterned papers to work with along with so many lovely stamps and die cuts, most of which I have never seen before. Thank you Lisa for the lovely kit and thank you to our resident photographer Lindsey for taking our kit photo for us again this month!

Lisa is giving away two mini kits this month on so make sure you stop by the 12 Kits of Occasions blog to find out the details of how you can you can have a chance to win!

I was able to make 4 cards this month but I have lots left over to make a couple more cards. I saved a few pieces because I wanted to see what everyone else did with them first. This is what I made...

St. Patrick's Day | for Birch Press Design

Hi there, today I have a card over on the Birch Press Design blog for St. Patrick's Day which is this coming weekend. After what has been a VERY long, cold and snowy winter I feel that St. Patrick's Day is a hint that springtime is coming.

This past weekend I was away at a stamping retreat and when I came home the snow had gone down about 4" from when I left. Great news but while I was sleeping and during the day on Monday 6 more inches fell!!! So I could use a little Luck of the Irish and maybe the temperatures will warm up and the snow will melt!


Hope you pop over to the Birch Press Design blog and have a closer look st this 4 bar card I created for today!

Pretty Poppy - Concord & 9th Guest Design

Happy Friday!

I am here today with my last post as the February Guest Designer at Concord & 9th!
Today for the Feature Friday post we are sharing projects created with the Pretty Poppy stamps and the Pretty Poppy dies.

This first card was created with the Pretty Poppy die set. The details these dies make are so beautiful. The sentiment is from the Floral Prints Silhouette stamp set.
