Hey, where did June go??!! I'm not sure, but I do know it's the last day of this summer month and we're celebrating with The 12 Kits of Occasions post. The sweetest of sweets Michele is our hostess this month. She put lots of love into her {Sum Sum Summertime} kit for the team to enjoy. And away we go!




Oh good golly do these little band members bring back summer memories for me. I was the head majorette in a baton and drum corp and my brother was a drummer. Two cousins and my sister-in-law (along with her siblings) were in the corp too. Summers were adventurous with parades and competitions all over the state. Oh the fun we had! 


 
This little rocket man will be blasting off to wish Sweet P a happy 4th of July!


And this is the way I feel right now. I need a getaway from all of the renovation goings on at our house!


This dude just makes me smile and for some strange reason reminds me of one of our nephews! I can just hear him saying "This beach is off the hook" HA!!!

I can't wait to see what the team has to share. Come join me in a visit with them all as we March our way from June into July!

These are all as cute as can be Lisa! You have such a gift for creating sweetness on all your cards. Your personality just flows into each creation. The guys at the beach cracked me up when I first saw them too. I adore each and every card here! Happy weekend!

WOW...loving every one of your cards Lisa! They are all just as sweet as can be and have totally made me smile this morning! Your band of marching mice cards are absolutely adorable (and colored to perfection I might add!!) and remind me of all the parades our middle daughter was in when she played in the band! And your looooong eared bunny card is just too cute and makes a perfect 4th of July card for your little Sweet P! GREAT cards Lisa...loved them all!! :0)

Those marching mice are just the cutest! And how fun that they remind you of your own marching days! I really love the summer theme of your cards. The beach is obviously calling! Hopefully you can have a getaway of your own soon!

Lisa, the gift you bring all of us through your card making is a treasure! Such sweetness.The band bunnies are both so good, can't choose between them. But the the coloring on the aqua and gold card, the tiny sequin buttons (think they're sequins) is fabulous! the bunnies look furry! Just love your special touches of joy tucked into each and every gem you create. Hugs sweet friend!

Patti said...

Oh Lisa you surely did rock this challenge! I think each and every one of your cards are just plain huggable!!

Have a wonderful day friend and thank you, in advance for the hug : )

Wishing you and your family a happy, fun-filled 4th!

Those sweet bunny marchers must be so special for you since they can bring happy memories. Were the colors like your band? And I smile every time I see another card with those beach people. Love the waves! Beach lady is adorable too. Love her with the lovely flower background!

Ivana Camdzic said...

Sooo fabulous! Each card brings a huge smile to my face! Love all the glittery accents, the bitty band mice are SO sweet, and your beach cards are making me itch for some sunny rays! Lisa, your designs are always so beautiful and inspiring - so much goodness with this fabulous kit!!

Anita in France said...

A wonderful collection, Lisa, each so perfectly executed and detailed! Love the texture on those marching bunnies ... that big eared bunny is always a cutie, and is even more so with all that sparkle ... I can so relate to your need for a getaway with beach lady ... I'd be like that last card, hitting the beach with abandon! Hugs, Anita :)

Annette Allen said...

Marybeth said...

Lisa these are so brilliantly assembled! I love your beach lady with the flower background , I so wanted to use that patterned paper and messed mine up. Loving the marching band cards too! So sorry I am so late in commenting.

Tracey McNeely said...

Lisa I could have sworn that I had been by to your blog and quite shocked to see that I hadn't been--I am so sorry! That being said what a gorgeous collection of cards. Two fabulous band cards making me think I need to do another, rocket bunny is the cutest and those papers look like they were meant to accompany Beach Lady and finally the dude running down the beach is the bomb! All fabulous!

I Card Everyone said...

Oh Lisa, the beach was waiting for you all week long! So sorry you weren't able to make it!
I can see why you'd be so thrilled with those marching bunnies! and you've created the most adorable cards with them.
Okay WHO could resist jumping into a polka-dotted-wave?? Even this non-swimmer would give that a go!
Now that I've almost reached the bottom of the group, I'm going to reveal that the patterned paper behind your sweet little beach-lady is a Christmas paper! xx
