Four-of-a-Kind #6



It's time for our February Four-of-a-Kind.   This is the sixth in a series of monthly posts where Cathy, Kim, Renee and I challenge ourselves to make a card out of a kit sent to us by the hostess of the month.  The hostess for the month makes four kits and sends them out to each 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 can't wait to see what everyone has created.
Earlier this month, my daughter offered to make us a logo.  So now, whenever you see this logo, you will know it's time for the four of us to have some fun and make something special.
Kim is the hostess this month, and she sent us a wonderful package full of goodies, all wrapped up like a present. 



When I opened the present, this is what I found:


I had to stop myself at 4 cards....








The other three members of Four-of-a-Kind are:
Cathy Weber:  Empty Nest Crafter
Kim Heggins:  Cupcakes, Cards and Kim
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 sixth Four-of-a-Kind post. 


Thanks for Visiting

  3. You know I love those button cards! Loved that one especially, but you created four completely different cards and used up so many great things from our kit. I love the card using the Mat stack layers and last one with the pinked edges and Happy Birthday in the middle. Really great cards this month Joyce. Loved them all.
