Yesterday, I told you I had something in store for you today--here it is:   


Here is the program:  The 'hostess' for the month makes four kits and sends them out to each of the four of us.  We work secretly to create a card using at least 4 items from the kit.   No other rules or restrictions.  We are allowed to use anything else we have on hand.  We get to see each others cards today, on each of our blog posts.  We are scheduling our posts to go live at the same time.

I'm so excited to see what everyone did with the incredible kits Cathy sent out last month to get us started. Cathy made a kit using PTI Cupcake Collection, and sent us embossed cardstock in Berry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate, and Simply Chartreuse, plus lots of other die cuts and patterned papers.

Here is my card:

I wish I had thought to take a picture of the kit all spread out, but I didn't. Everything you see on this card was in the kit, with the exception of the little paper button.  The kit had enough in it for me to make another card or two, which I will do at some point. This is a great way to get to play with a stamp set or other supplies that you don't own, don't you think?

The other three members of Four-of-a-Kind are:
Cathy Weber:  Empty Nest Crafter
Renee Lynch:  It's a Patchwork Life

Please stop by their blogs, if you haven't been there already, and see what they have created for our first ever Four-of-a-Kind post.  Don't miss the blog candy being offered on Cathy's blog--become a follower and leave a comment for all four of us to be eligible for this prize.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  PTI Cupcake Collection
Paper:  Berry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate, Simply Chartreuse, whatever patterned paper is listed on Cathy's blog
Dies:  PTI:  Cupcake Collection, Fillable Frame #10, Mat Stack 4, Edgers #1, Double Ended Banner
