This kit was packed with SO many fun and summery images that it was hard to know what to start with first! The sweet penguins won out and I came up with this sweet beachy card:
These sweet little guys are from MFT's Penguins In Paradise and are celebrating everything SUMMER!!
This card is probably my favorite simply because I just LOVE this Penny Black image (Beach Baby)! Simply colored with some Copics and a white gel pen and she's ready for a wonderful day at Lake Michigan!
And how's this for a nice and bright summertime card?! I loved the flamingo and flowers Birgit provided from PTI's Some Like It Hot and they fit just beautifully inside the nice bright green wreath die cut from Pink & Main.
And just to show you how sweet Birgit is...I messed up my first image of this sweet bird by trying to water color it with my Zigs, and I used too much water and the cardstock began to tear! I mentioned to Birgit what I had done and next thing I knew, she had sent me 4 more images and stamped on water color cardstock too! Thank you, thank you Birgit...you're the best!! So anyway, I used my water color pencils this time and a very limited amount of water on the Apple Blossoms and for my Robin I used a small sponge dauber.
Birgit had included so many wonderful papers and I loved the flamingo one! Unfortunately I wasn't thinking too far ahead because I had already used the die cut flamingo on my 3rd card...good thing I have the Some Like It Hot set and was able to stamp another flamingo to use with this sweet paper!
And last but not least, a sweet little pillow box using those wonderful MFT images again. I embossed my pillow box with a FSJ embossing folder before assembling it to give a little more design to it, and then added a few strips of the DSP Birgit included in the kit. The penguin and palm tree are all Copic colored and I'll fill this with some fruity candy for my sweet little Addy!
And here they are all together! This was totally such a FUN kit to play with and I can hardly wait to see what the rest of the DT came up with!

Thank you, thank you Birgit for such a FUN kit...it was like playing with sunshine!! :0)
