The 12 Kits of Christmas--December


Hi there, friends!  Hard as it is to believe, we are almost at the end of 2012.  That means it's time for the last installment of The 12 Kits of Christmas.  This month is hosted by Sharron, who provided us with a sweet winter themed kit.

We have some changes coming to The 12 Kits group in 2013, including some sad goodbyes.  Cathy and Suzanne will be stepping away from the group in the new year, so I hope you'll take time to thank them for a year's worth of holiday inspiration!  They will both be missed.  :(

On to Sharron's fabulous kit.  I didn't get to spend nearly enough time playing with this kit, between being sick for 3 weeks and preparing for our Christmas guests.  But luckily I'll be able to use it all winter long for quick and easy cards!

This first card is my favorite:


The second one is a CASE of a card a did a few days earlier but never posted:


I couldn't resist using the sparkly die cut hills on another card, too:


I'll be back later to add supply lists.  We just spent 18 hours on the road yesterday and I'm still recovering.  In the meantime, be sure to hop around to the rest of the girls' blogs.

Hi Christina! Hope your trip was great and that you're able to rest today. I love your cards. You always seem to add the perfect tidbits from your own stash - the embossing on the first one, and the extra stamps on the others. Just amazing! Happy New Year!

Sick for 3 weeks, traveling for 18 hours, sounds like a BLAST! These are fun cards... love the idea of the fun kits every month... I certainly have enough goodies in my stash to share...

Hi Christina! Just looking at your post makes me happy - so many gorgeous images I could just stare and daydream about a walk in the snowy winter woods. Sigh...

Sharron said...

Your cards always are the greatest CAS designs! Love the fox with that wonderful embossed background and his scarf & the twine coordinate too! The second card where you stamped the trees before embossing looks fabulous and your sweet sledding scene is adorable! Hope you have time to rest and feel better. Have a wonderful New Year!

Christina sorry to hear you are still a lit under the weather, it is no fun being sick during the holidays. Your cards are just so pretty and your last card is my favorite. So peaceful and serene with all the white and the little touches of bling so fabulous!

18 hours! Wow, I know how that feels although I only drive it with my husband...can imagine what it is like with kids! You made such cute cards this month, as always, but especially love the card with the fox and the red/white twine. You colored him so perfectly with the red/white sweater. Happy New Year!

Marybeth said...

All three are gorgeous and I love the color theme you used. The sled one is so sweet. Beautifully colored fox too! Hope you have safe travels and a Happy New Year!

Cristina I see why it is your favourite, I LOVE the aqua mug and the fabby twine. Your trees in the meadow scene is beautiful and then those birch tree in the snow scene also beautiful. Happy New Year to you and your family! See you next year. xoxo

OMW, Christina, 18 hours on the road!! I'm so glad you made it safely, that is a LOOONG time.

Your cards from this kit are astounding, truly. I love all the sparkliness and the layouts you have designed!!

Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Three absolutely perfect cards. I hope you are feeling better. I now notice that you have not used any of the patterned papers, and I am chuckling about why. You will find it one day, and then have so many ideas to choose from in using it. You are proof that we don't actually 'need' the patterned paper (just want it).

I think my favorite one is the sledding child...that is so sweet :) I really like that embossing folder you used on the first...awesome!
