As I write this up, we are getting our first little bit of rain in FOR.EV.ER! Almost feels a little bit like Winter, but when you see our theme this month for the 12 Kits of Occasions, you are really going to feel like Winter. Renee Lynch of A Patchwork Life is our hostess this month and she sent us a Wintery kit full of snowmen, snow globes, and just about anything to do with the word Snow! Here's a peek at our kit:

I hope you will zoom in up close to check out all the fabulous ingredients Renee sent us. I've been playing with them all week and have enough to make at least 3 or 4 more cards without even using a single thing from my own stash. Here are my cards:
I always post my favorite card first...I love snow globes and think you can make one for just about any occasion and using almost any stamp or die set. I added Liquid Applique to the branches, heated them up and created some very puffy snow. The little birds are a cut file from Silhouette.
This one's totally different, but still snowy in theme. I went very girly and pink with this one adding just pink copic coloring to the cute snowman scene.
I loved the vintage patterned paper Renee sent us this month...isn't that the cutest snowman? I added a tea-stained bit of seam binding and one of the cute gold snowflakes from our kit. I also added a Verve banner in the background that reminded me of candy canes.
This last card was a fun one to make. I used the plaid patterned paper and used a PTI stitching die to cut stitching lines. I added some red floss stitching and a cute matching badge that was included in our kit.
Lots of fun this month...and we have a guest designer joining us this month.
Here's a peek at one of her cards. Please stop by her blog to see what else she made with our Wintery Kit.
