The 12 Kits of Occasions - Christmas

Hello....can you believe that tomorrow is December 1st!!! Wow this year just flew by. It's time for our 12 Kits of Occasions November post and the amazing and talented Jessica from Paper Parade is our incredible hostess. When her kit emptied out on my craft desk I went crazy, so many sweet and festive critters and I started coloring the same day they arrived. I had so much fun playing with everything, well just about everything, the powder blue plaid patterned paper is so amazing, that I only allowed myself to use one piece, saving the rest and those sweet yeti's for another day.  Be sure to head over to our group post for a peek at everyone's festive creations. 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...enjoy your day!

 Love this amazing scalloped box from Lawn Fawn, once I colored all these sweet critters I remembered I had the die and thought want a fabulous Christmas card it would make. My daughter and already claimed this for her card stash.

 Love this sweet baking bear, so in love with this set!

I know it's hard to see but the entire snow globe is covered with lots of clear glitter.

  3. Exactly what I said in my post today. I love seeing how different everyones' cards turn out. The moment I saw your pop up box card I was in love and wanting to go buy it so maybe it will come with you in April! ;) Yours is so cute and festive and I am not surprised Ashleigh claimed it! The rest of your cards have the sweetest scenes and are all coloured beautifully. I love how you coloured the snow globe!! All fabulous cards!

  12. So much cuteness here Kim! Let's start with that darling box card... OH MY! That box die is on my wish list and now, even more so after seeing your card. What a great way to show off all those cute little critters! The fairy and snowman card is just too cute! I think I'm going to go back to my original card and add a snowman. I always enjoy the inspiration I get from all you amazing gals! I hope your December is filled with Joy!
