A Sunday bike ride with the KitCats!


 Hiya!  It's the 1st Sunday of the month, which means it's time for a Kit-Cat post!  If you are a new reader to my blog, that basically means a group of us friends that met on SCS take turns sending identical card kits with 1 stamped image and designer papers and a few embellishments and we all have to create a card with it!  Fun, Fun, FUN!  We call ourselves the Kit-tens due to, hee hee, the kit!  This month, our hostess was the uber sweet and joyous Susan!  I absolutely loved every ounce of her kit, so much so I used everything but the ribbon and buttons ... and that was only because my Aileens was supah dry from one of my kiddies leaving the lid off! :)

I decided to use another fun fold - I have been so stuck in a rut with my card making.  I enjoy a challenge and going outside my comfort zone to see what is new and innovative and something I may want to try again - some maybe not!  *wink!*  I love the vibrant colors to the papers she sent which match the theme of her image - SU's Time for You bicycle!  Such sweet memories I have of biking as a kid - even in Europe, my brother and I would take off on our bikes down the old European cobblestone streets and roam through the towns or castle ruins.  I have a harder time now - we live in a busy suburb where cars and missing sidewalks and busy intersections and shopping centers make it a little harder :)  But I love to ride my bike still and loved going down memory lane while creating.  Thank you, Susan!









Would you like to see what the other *kittens* have made with this stamped image and papers?  Here they are!

Next month,  its' my turn to hostess!  I already  have my idea and most of the kit ingredients, so stayed tuned next month and see what surprises awaits the other kittens! :)

Muah! 
Blessings to you!

  4. Oh my goodness, Kelly... your card is wonderful!!! I love the unique fold (I'm going to have to remember that one!) Funny thing is, I almost put the bike inside my card, too... but changed my mind and then regretted that decision. LOL!

    I love how you used almost everything in Susan's delightful kit! You are an inspiration to me!!!

    Hugs and Purrs!!!

  20. I LOVE IT!! I know what you mean about being stuck with one standard fold (which for the record, I hardly think applies to you because you always have SO MANY different ideas posted here). This fold is AWESOME and does a fabbie job of highlighting the sweet image that Susan sent. Wonderful use of all the elements, as always! HUGS
