Let's Hear It For The Boys - May Edition of The 12 Kits of Occasions



Ok....where did May go??? Seriously I can not believe it is over! And since it is...it's time for our 12 Kits of Occasions post. Before I get to my 2 cards, yes you heard me right. I won't bore you with all the details, but May has been a yucky month...being sick and work has been a real challenge I have not made many cards other than design teams but on the bright side, June will be here is a few short hours and school will be out in 3.5 days and I pray all will be well by then.

So now to my regularly scheduled post....Jeanne from A Kept Life is our hostess with the mostess this month and oh my goodness, what a kit she sent. There are enough supplies to make about 3 or 4 hundred cards, no joke my friends! So like I said before I have 2 cards to share today and I have one more to share on Monday. When my over the top amazing kit arrived everything was neatly packaged and there was this tag that said "don't try this at home" and I could not wait to use it! I think that was my favorite part of the kit! 

Be sure to hear over to our 12 Kits of Occasions blog to see all the wonderful and amazing cards from the rest of the group. We also have a couple of special guest this month. Renee from It's a Patchwork Life and Jill from Greenwood Girls. 

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend!




I am also entering my final card in Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes weekly challenge!

  9. Only two cards but.. WOW! LOVE them both! That cowboy is amazing - when I saw the sneak peek at the 12 kits had to run here immediately! The lightbulb is clean and wonderful. So sorry to read about you being ill - I hope you are better. Just got in from vacation and anxious to catch up. I pray June makes up for all the bad and is double good to you my friend! Hugs !

  11. Sorry its been yucky for you, Kim. It sure did go fast! I have been not that well for a few weeks myself but so happy I didn’t have to try and go to work like you.

  14. Kim I love both of your fabulous cards! And sorry to hear you have been sick too! i think the viruses nowadays are just dreadful! Ugh! Take good care and happy almost summer time! My son is out on June 16th! I cannot wait!!!

  15. Sure do hope that the soon to arrive summer holiday will help you get back on track! Feeling yucky is not fun! But...you'd never know that you're a bit under the weather based on the fab cards that you're creating!

    Love the embossed (?) silver coil on the light bulb and LOVE the neon sign message! "Don't Try This At Home" nearly had me spewing coffee through my nose (note to self....don't sip while card gazing!). Great 'he man' colors and patterns on the DP!

  22. Love both of these cards, Kim. Quality over quantity--that is surely your motto today. I really love how you used that hilarious tag, and also a fabulous western cowboy card. So glad that you are nearing the end of your stressful period--your health is also bound to improve, and I'm sure I'll be seeing more done with this kit before too long.

  23. Do hope you're back to feeling yourself, Kim ... I'm thinking you've finished school for the summer by now and that you can concentrate on getting some well earned R&R! A fabulous duo of cards ... yummy DP with that shiny bulb element ... and how brilliant is that 'Don't Try This At Home ... fantastic! Hugs & Bisous, Anita :)

  24. Great manly-man cards, Kim! Hope, by now, you've wrapped up the year and are taking some much-needed, well-deserved time off. Being a teacher is *not* an easy job! Rest, relax, rejuvenate and have fun!
    hugs~c
