Four-of-a-Kind #5

After a break for the December holidays, Four-of-a-Kind is back with our fifth post. This 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.  You can see the other challenges hereherehere, and here
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.

Cathy is the host this month, and she sent us a huge package full of goodies.  The stamps are from Take Note and Flutterby Friend, and the papers are Uncommon by Authentique and  PTI. 

Cathy sent us materials to make both a note pad holder and a post it note holder.  I've been meaning to make something like that for quite a while, and I'm keeping both for myself.  She sent so many things, I couldn't stop myself, and also made three cards.  Finally, I ran out of time, but I still have lots of goodies left over.

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 fifth Four-of-a-Kind post.  

 Thanks for Visiting

  4. Love all of this but especially what you did with the squares on the tall notepad!

  5. Joyce, just incredibly beautiful! I too plan to keep the note pad and post-it's for myself, yours are just so lovely. The birthday is just so sweet and love the use of the filigree border die. So gald we are back on the 4 of a Kind schedule too, I missed doing these kits.

  6. This will take forever to type up all I love about these. First, those pinked squares were so creative! I absolutely love that idea. Second, I love the card with the flourishes. That was a great idea. Third, you were the only one who used the more orange side of the patterned paper. This is what I love about our little kit club, everyone sees something different and unique with the exact same things. You did such a good job and made so many great projects. I'm glad you are keeping the notepads for yourself Me too!
