12 Kits of Occasions: November with Kim

This may just be the quickest post I ever will write...I will show why I was preoccupied at the end of the post.  This month's edition of 12 Kits of Occasions is hosted by Kim of Cupcakes, Cards & Kim.  Kim sent our whole group a gigantic package of all kinds of Christmas ingredients and I am sure you will love what everyone in our group has made with them.  Here are the kit ingredients:

I made three cards with Kim's kit...I loved the die cuts!

Like I said, this post will be short but for all the details about Kim's kit and to see what the other members of the 12 Kits of Occasions have come up with...please visit the 12 Kits of Occasions blog.

Thank you Kim for a great November kit!

Here's why I was a little pre-occupied and was in such a rush to write up my post:
My first grandson, Jaxon Weber, born on Saturday Nov 29th at 6:33 am after a "quick" 20 hour labor and eventual C-Section.  Adorable and well worth the wait!
