Card Kit TIme!

Thursday, July 22, 2010

Good morning sweet peeps!

I have a fun card to show you today! It was created with the card kit I sent (actually, I hand delivered it this month!) to my two girlfriends, Mary and Kadie, to see what we all come up with using the same supplies. It's just fun to see what each of us create when our styles are so different!

In the kit, I put a few stamped images of the adorable Emma Puddle Jumper from Claudia & Company (so cute!) as well as a few sheets of BoBunnies Love Bandit collection of papers, some ribbon, a few buttons, a couple of heart trinket pins and some candy dots (which I can't believe I never used!).

Even though I hand delivered this kit to the girls while we were in Maryland, I only got as far as coloring up little Emma while I was there. (Actually, I colored up a few images while I was there! haha) So this is the first time the girls have seen the image put together on a card.

A lot of the BoBunny paper was double sided, but I stuck to the purple and green hues to let the Baja Breeze blue in Emma's dress pop. It's a really simple layout but it lets the image and sentiment shine, I think. I added one of the buttons and the heart pins to the bow, but that's about all the embellishments I used from the kit. I really am embellie-challenged!

Since I was at Mary's when I colored this, I got to use her SU colors, and man - I NEED more colors! lol Time to invest in some more reinkers I think! I used Baha Breeze and Pretty in Pink on her dress, Antique Linen and Tea Dye on her hair and Soft Suede for her shoes. Mr Bunny was colored with a tiny bit of Going Gray and Pretty In Pink (with a teensy bit of Regal Rose) for his nose. The grass was colored with Old Olive and the sky was Cool Caribbean.

I'm dying to see what Kadie and Mary came up with using their kits, so hop like a bunny with me over to their blogs to check out what they've created! Thanks SO much for popping in today! :)

When you get a group of girls together, you do some funny things and we were no different! We didn't realise until we had our shoes off that we all had the same nail polish color on, so we decided to document it and play a little game with all of you! If you can guess who's red toes belong to which girlfriend, Mary has graciously offered up a little candy up for a winner from each of our blogs! Love that girl!
