What a lovely array of cards Michelle! Each one is a work of art in itself. I love the blocks of printed paper on your second card and the flags on the cake card are so fun! The floral wreath on the green polka dots is so sweet too and I can't forget the last card. The layered focal point is just perfect! Your kit was so wonderful and fun to work with. Leaves me yearning for spring and playing in the garden.

These are wonderful. I love that wreath with all those fussy-cut flowers! And your umbrella is on that great piece of cardstock I still have left to play with. This kit was awesome, and I had so much fun with it. It was a breath of fresh air in February. Thanks again for your wonderful invitation!

Well Michelle, your kit was fabulous! Enjoyed every bit, well not every bit, there's still some left over! Dies and stamps I wasn't familiar with, and a few I had on my wish list! Thank you, thank for it all! And by the way, casing all your cards today! Love all the detail!

Amazing kit Michelle! I loved playing with it (no work here!) and love seeing it through your eyes.. your designs are so clean and striking.. the wreath of flowers on the polka dot paper and that gray umbrella on the soft blue background are my two favorites... beautiful clean lines that let the images shine! Thanks so much for all the hard work putting this kit together.. I hope you know how much I appreciate it!

Michelle....what an amazing and beautiful kit, so many wonderful goodies to play with. I love each and everyone of your cards but your cake card is my favorite, so beautiful with that gingham background is simply stunning. Thank you again for an amazing kit!

Oh your kit was FABULOUS!! I love the pretty, clean cards you created with this!! That flower wreath is just stunning and the fun way you used the layers on this!

Lisa Elton said...

Thank you thank you for a perfectly delightful spring kit Michelle!! Your cards are just incredible. The first with the wreath of blooms around the sentiment is one to CASE! Also love the cake with the blue gingham paper. Pretty cards!!

What a beautiful looking kit, Michelle, and so colorful! All five of your cards are neat designs, but I think my fav is your very first one with the circle of blooms. Spring is in the air, I hope!

Sharron said...

A huge thank you for such a delightful kit, Michelle! It was a joy to play with! Love all your fabulous cards! It's always fun to see how what the hostess creates. Your wreath looks wonderful! Thankfully I still have my flowers so may need to do a CASE! And your simple design using just the candles is wonderful.

Michelle I always love to see the kits through the eyes of the designer! Thank you first off for sending such a lovely springtime kit, I loved it! The wreath you created with the flowers is so gorgeous and the cake is coloured perfectly. Each design uses patterned paper and yet still remains CAS!

Lindsey said...

Michelle, I absolutely adored your kit! Thank you! And oh, how I love the cards you made with it. I might just have to buy some of these stamps because now I want to CASE your projects, but I've already used lots of your kit. I will CASE your umbrella card for sure. Really love the patterned flags paired with the cake. And your full floral wreath is amazing!
