Four of a Kind - April 2012

It is that time again where 4 of us using all of the same supplies make cards and then post them to our blogs...April's Four of a Kind Challenge. This month Renee was our gracious hostess and came up with an incredibly fabulous kit! The first thing I saw when I opened my package where the colors, red, yellow and black, so I am thinking Disney, right? Nope but the next best thing Country French from Waltzingmouse Stamps. This set is one of my favorites and makes me dream of Paris.  I was the lucky one of the group and received the kit with self assembling cards, no really it was like the cards just put themselves together. Renee sent a fabulous array of supplies too, from buttons, pins, bling and ribbon, anything you could want to create some wonderful cards.  I made 5 cards and still have plenty of supplies left over for another day.  Thank you Renee for the awesome kit and thank you all for taking a peek!

I just fell in love with the yellow paper and ribbon so decided to make a more feminine card

This card is my favorite of the bunch

Good Morning

  1. What a wonderful set of cards. I love them all. I agree with you about the second card--it's my favorite, too. Your fourth card is almost exactly like one of mine. I think this is the closest anything has ever come to being alike. You are so lucky to have gotten the self assembling kit. Your kit did a great job of making itself into a great batch of cards.

  2. What a wonderful kit that Renee sent, and I love that French Country set! Your cards are beautiful, I think I like your favorite as well. Cant tell for sure if its black and red or blue, but I love the look! Love the red gingham ribbon you used too. Beautiful cards Kim!
