Card Kit Club - April edition

It's the most wonderful time of the month! It's card kit time! This month it was Mary's turn to put together the kit. Look at all this goodness... hand crochet flowers, lace, twine, tulle, fun stamps, and lots of gorgeous PP!

Here is my first card. I just couldn't resist all the pretty paper, so I used it all! Mary sent us some Unity Stamp images. I just LOVE that bicycle.

And look at those flowers! I made a matching envelope for the card before realizing that the card will never fit in there, lol!

Here is my second card... Again I used multiple sheets of the PP, and another Unity stamp. I just love how the colors all go together!

My last project, believe it or not, is a Christmas tag. I'm making one Christmas tag a month to make sure that I have enough to go around when Christmas gets here. Mary sent us a large tag die-cut and a little glassine envelope which were PERFECT. I put them together with some of the cute trims from the kit.

I added a mat board ornament to the pocket made with one of my favorite Christmas stamps by Paula Best.

Thanks for stopping by, now go checkout the inspiration and creative genius of the other ladies in the group!
