The 12 Kits of Occasions – December Guest Designer

Hello … bonjour … hope you had the most wonderful and blessed Christmas!  Today, I’m excited and honoured to be Guest Designing with the DT at The 12 Kits of Occasions!  What a fabulous surprise and huge thrill it was some months ago, to receive the lovely Lindsey‘s invitation to play along with this group of truly amazing, super talented crafters.  Thanks so much, Lindsey … it’s been so much fun playing with the myriad of wonderful goodies in your ‘Walking in a Winter Wonderland’ kit!  Just take a look at all the yumminess that tumbled out of my happy package …

12 Kits Dec 15 Yep … fantastic … so full of delicious supplies!  I made eight cards … so far (warning, photo heavy post!) … and there’s still tons left to play with.  Are you sitting comfortably … can I share?

12 Kits 1Isn’t that feathery trim from the kit just gorgeous … perfect frostiness … and the snowflake’s been shimmered up too!

12 Kits 2The blended card base was an ‘Anita’ addition … as was the sparkly Stickles shining from the windows of those sweet little houses!

12 Kits 3Here, these warm hearted neighbours have thrown open their shutters to welcome guests who arrive by the shimmery light of the Stickled stars …

12 Kits 4… and the residents of this tiny mountain hamlet must be skiers … they’re hoping for more snow … my sparkly seed beads serve as the shaker snow!
12 Kits 5Non traditional colours for a contemporary door wreath … complete with Wink of Stella’d and Glossy Accented ornaments.

12 Kits 6The slightly more traditional next door neighbour …

12 Kits 7and the minimalist one on the other side !  The tiny berries were my own addition.

12 Kits 8Finishing as I started … with snowflakes … all shimmery and pearly …

12 Kits All… and here’s a final photo of them all, lined up along the cheminée.

If you haven’t already been, I know you’ll want to head over to The 12 Kits of Occasions blog to check out the fabulous array of cards from the DT and from fellow Guest Designer, Bhavana … and to follow the links to their blogs.  There’s a full list of supplies over there too, if you’d like further details on those.  Thanks so much, once again, Lindsey for such a fantastic kit … it’s been a delight playing along with you all!

I’m linking some of my Walking in a Winter Wonderland cards to …

I hope your New Year celebrations turn out to be magical … and that 2016 brings you blessings in abundance … health, happiness, love and laughter among them!  As this is my last post of the year, I’d also like to say a huge thank you to all of you … friends, followers (of the active and silent variety!) and visitors … for your support, encouragement, kindness, generosity … and most especially, your friendship.  My world is a better place because you are in it!

I’ve written these following words so often … and each time I mean every single word … they come from my heart!  Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy!  Anita 🙂
