It's my favorite time of the month again--Four of a Kind posting time. I think most of my readers know what is about to happen, but if you are new, please click here to get the scoop.
This month is very special because it marks the one year point for our Four-of-a-Kind group and my one year blogaversary. This month, one year ago, I started a blog so I would have somewhere to post the cards I made with my newly found blogging friends, Cathy, Kim, and Renee. Well, what a wild ride it has been. I have made so many new friends, posted and blogged numerous cards, entered many challenges, and even won a few. If you can bear with me for a very picture heavy post, there will be information about a celebration giveaway at the end.
This month, Renee is our hostess, and she sent us a kit chock full of Waltzingmouse goodness, featuring Sewing Box Hugs, as well as lots of Lily Bee Double Dutch paper. I always hope for a self assembling card kit, as those are usually the easiest to work with. But, as you will soon see, Renee sent me a kit that was particularly bewitched.
Here is a picture of what Renee sent:
I began by cutting out all those sweet Sewing Box Hugs images while watching the Olympics. These cut images then arranged themselves into the following cards.
What do you think of that denim ribbon? Can you believe Renee made that?
Well, after these four cards, I thought I was done. Time to hoard (as usual) all the rest of the patterned papers that Renee sent. But then, a funny thing happened. The papers Renee sent refused to go into my patterned paper basket. They begged and pleaded to be used. They did not want to gather dust. They wanted to be run through my Cuttlebug. OK. So here are a few more cards I made with the papers Renee sent. I told you they were bewitched.
I did make one other card using these patterned papers, and if you want to see it, stop by tomorrow for the Waltzingmouse blog party. Would you believe that I still have things left over? And, I had a few more ideas for cards, but I ran out of time.
Good for you for making it to the end of this post. Please leave me a comment telling me which is your favorite card, and you will be eligible for one of two prizes--a $20 Gift Certificate to PTI or the Paper Smooches Chit Chat set. There will be two winners--one for each prize. You have until Thursday, August 23 to leave your comment. One comment per person, please.
Now you can head over to the other members of our Four of a Kind group to see what they have created with the same kit. That is one of my favorite parts of our little group--the BIG reveal. There will be excitement for sure on Kim's blog, where she will be holding her own blogaversary celebration and contest as well.
