Hello and welcome! July has flown by at lightening speed bringing us to the end of another summer month. The bright side, it brings with it our 12 Kits of Occasions post! Our lovely Marybeth is July's hostess. Her kit {Summer and More} was filled with just that...summer! And to my delight lots of Purple Onion Designs images! 




First up, this adorable pair heading out on a road trip.
 Looks like they've picked up a wee hitch hiker!




What's summer without some refreshing lemon/lime citrus.



This sweet bunny just makes me happy! I fussy cut the image and tucked the rope into the wreath. I wasn't happy with my coloring of the large bloom on the wreath so I covered it up with a trio of PPP flowers. I also gave the bunny some teeny butterflies to smile at!


She went into the mail for Sweet P who just so happens to be enjoying her new playground ~ as she calls it! She keeps saying it's beautiful and asking is it mine?




How about a little more sweetness!



Oh wait, one more dose of sweetness! I told you these Purple Onion Designs images make me happy!! To kick the sweetness factor up one more notch, I filled the shaker with my Sweet Pea sequin mix.

I hope all of my references to sweetness didn't give you a cavity today LOL!! Oh what the heck just one more... bring your sweet self along with me to check out what the team has to share!

All of your card are truly as sweet as can be Lisa! Your little road trip friends is totally adorable with that fun checklist layered in the background. And how sweet is that bunny swinging inside the floral vine?? The butterflies were the perfect detail. And.... that little mouse nestled in the fuschia's on your shaker card.... Oh My GOODNESS is that ever cute. Your little sweet pea looks like she's having fun on her new playground too. My sweet tooth is alwasy satisfied when I visit your delightful blog. Have a happy day my friend!

'Sweetness' runs through each and every photo, Lisa! Loving the coloring on the traveling critters. Haven't used that image yet, and gathering ideas. Love how you colored the bunny guys too. Looks like real fur! The playground looks amazing! I'm sure 'P' is enjoying it to bits. Gotta give a nod to your darling shaker. The scallop die with the scallops on the inside, LOVE! Hugs!

Oh Lisa, so many beautiful cards here today..... Each one so fresh and bright! That shaker filled with your Sweet Pea mix of sequins is adorable with the sleeping mouse! Love the bunny holding the single flower too!

Each card is cuter than the next! And OMGosh Sweet Pea is so BIG! What a FAB playset!

Sharron said...

Each of these is so delightful, Lisa! Love your amazing coloring! Your little bunnies looks so sweet and 'furry'. The butterflies you added for your little guy on the swing are so cute. He looks like he is enjoying them too! The pink stripes with the yellow make such a perfect background for the lime and lemon--so fresh and cool. And here's giving a special squeal for the charming shaker--such an awesome design and a wonderful place for that sweet little mouse!! I can imagine how much Sweet P loves her playground--it looks like so much FUN!

How fun to see your sweet designs this morning over coffee. They're adorable & make me want to color something. You did a wonderful job! Thanks for sharing them!

There couldn't be a sweeter place to visit than your blog, Lisa! You have taken these darling Purple Onion images and told their story beautifully! LOve the stippled style of coloring, btw.
When does that VW arrive in our driveway? I'm sure there is room in the back for two more! xx

Lisa .. OMG.. starting at the top scrolling through your designs, and the pic of your sweet pea.. and then OMG.. you finish with that little mouse sleeping in the fuchsias... as if that wasn't adorable enough ... you cut the oval fame from pattern paper (be still my heart).. SMITTEN. YOU ARE AMAZING! Never saw that coming!! Pinning for more staring later!

It is such a treat to come by your blog at the end of the month (although this time I'm here on the 1st) to see what you have created with each kit. I always know that I will be blown away by what you have made and this month is no exception! So.much.cutness!!

Lisa I love all of your cards so much, I can't believe that we both put the bunny on the swing inside the wreath. It was like he or she was meant to be in there. That can't be Sweet P she was just a baby, so glad she is excited with her jungle gym! The shaker is super sweet, do you use one or two layers of foam?

Celeste Goff said...

Such sweet cards Lisa! Love sweet Pea's awesome playset and I'm sure she absolutely loved the sweet little card you sent her!

Anita in France said...

Sweetness indeed, Lisa ... all these adorable little critters are just so cute! I especially love the two little bunnies (on the swing and holding the flower) ... your colouring on them is awesome! What a fabulous adventure playground ... looks as though Sweet P is having so much fun with it ... I would!! Hugs, Anita :)

Annette Allen said...

aww all of your cards are so sweet.. and yay for new playground for sweet P..

Michelle said...

Nope...... never too much sweetness! Love, love each and every little masterpiece, with perfect detail (oh, that beautiful shaker card!) and amazing color/coloring.
Hope that Sweet Pea is enjoying that fabulous new playground!!

Greta said...

Sorry I'm so late getting here, Lisa--not that I wasn't thinking of you. Always love seeing how you use the kits & this one was perfect for you, I'd say! The card for Ms Sweet P is absolutely my favorite! Speaking of which--how can she be that big?! Sending hugs, Greta`

Kara said...

Gorgeous cards! Congrats on winning my giveaway. I sent you an email. Just want to make sure you received it. If not, let me know!

Jen Camara Mitchell said...

This is sweetness overload for sure! I think you've outdone yourself with your designs. Polka dots, shakers, and sweet images are all right at home in your crafty hands! And is that your own Sweet P climbing up the rock wall in her playground? It hardly seems possible that she's so grown up! How time flies!!

Ivana Camdzic said...

So much sweetness, indeed! Lisa, I CAN'T get over how cute these are!!! I love the bitty little critters - the bunny on the swing - omg!! Gorgeous, gorgeous cards and so many beautiful little details to look at. So happy little P is enjoying her playground :):):)
