Day 2: Flowers, Flowers Everywhere Blog Hop

Flowers, flowers, everywhere flowers...Don't you just love flowers? They bring color and beauty along with fragrance to our world and that is why this hop is celebrating them in all their glory. Hop along to see how the crafty people in our line up have used flowers in and on their projects.

Our Hostess for this hop is Lissa Marie (So Many Crafts) and her site is the place to start if you've happened upon this hop by accident and want to see more pretty flowers. Otherwise continue on and enjoy all the color and beauty of flowers everywhere.






Yesterday, I introduced you to "The Card Kitchen" cards kit from Jillibean Soup, and showed you this principal card I made for this hop:

"Gardening is cheaper than therapy and you
get flowers."


In addition to the other 3 cards I showed you yesterday (scroll down on my blog for that post, if you missed it), here are the other cards I made too, all from the same kit:







And believe it or not, I still have paper and embellishments leftover to make even more cards. I'm raving about The Card Kitchen card kit because it offers instant inspiration and everything you need to make so many cards in one sitting.

I've subscribed to THE CARD KITCHEN kit club because I think it's worth the $22.95/mo membership (plus S/H). In fact, I'm glad I did ~~ because the May kit is already sold out!  A subscription ensures that you'll get a kit before it's available to the general public, much like getting season tickets to your favorite sporting event!  {*GO PHILLIES!*}

How about you? Have you ever tried a kit in your paper crafting? Is there one you might recommend? 

Now continue on the Hop to LIZ.
