goodbye May kit! :'(


Shaunna here today - stopping by to share the last few cards i've made with the May kit - sad to see it go but can't wait to get into the June kit - it's the perfect way to get the summer started!!!

i meant to come by and share a post about my challenge card last Thursday - but with it being last day of school, hubby flying in from a business trip, after-school party for my son, kids, dinner, awards ceremony and then throwing myself into bed - let's just say if you have kids you know what i mean and you're glad your kids are out for a few months too.

this card was made for a friend who has a 21st birthday coming up and i saw it as the perfect opportunity - and the perfect kit - for the occasion!  i love how it turned out, and it uses all the best parts of the kit (+ a teeny, tiny little piece of Love, Elsie ribbon out of my stash... i bought like quadruplicates of all her stuff, so it still manages to find it's way into my projects!)  i can't wait to give it to her - i know she'll be really excited.  it was my first adventure in flocking as well, and i can't say how pleased i am with how the flocking and the DIY Thickers worked together.  DIY THICKERS PEOPLE!!!  they're genius.  they should have done it years ago.

i'm really excited about this second card.  i don't know why, i just feel like it's way outside of my box and i'm pretty proud of it.  completely my own design, i didn't even look at anything before i sat down, i just started grabbing chunks of patterned paper that were left over from other cuts and threw it together really quick.  a few more additions from my own stash - the Prima flowers, the twine, pearls and lace.  oh and the sticker strip.  yeah i couldn't help myself on that one, it just kind of worked out that way because all that stuff was on my desk from my EPIC mini album in progress project.  but it's still pretty super cute and you can see how with just a few scraps out of your stash and your kit how you can really do something pretty awesome :)

anyhoo....  come back tomorrow and check out the June kit!  you're gonna want to grab one before they're gone because they're pretty fantastic :)

have a lovely day!!!
