Did I Miss Kit Kraft Wednesday?

I missed Kit Kraft Wednesday for the first time since starting it!  There was a good reason why, as I was packing and preparing to take my kits on the road and do some seriously crafting at a weekend crop that was AMAZING!  My favorite weekend getaway crop happens just 3-4 miles from my house.  It is my twice yearly treat to myself and my craft. 

So I did use my kits, and will be posting some crafty cards all week using those kits.  First up today is a card for Colour Me card challenge.  For this one I made a card using my October Stamps of Life card kit.  This one has an adorable little pocket in the front for a gift card.  The little bag is open all the way across.  

The tag then pulls out, and that's where I will adhere my gift card using a glue dot . . . so the gift card will show through the transparency of the bag. 

Using that same kit, I was then inspired by the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches (sketch is shown further below in the supply list).


This was such a simple card . . . the pattern paper really does the work for you. 

I will be posting more cards created over the weekend, and I'm hoping to try some new techniques this week (I have my eye on a few!).

Hope you find some time to create.
