CupCards {to go} August Reveal

Good morning sweet friends!! It's been crazy around here, but we are having the best summer ever!!  We've climbed mountains, camped with friends, visited our kids, cooked together, fished's been a great summer and I'm so sad to see it come to a close.  Even though school starts on Monday, I'm looking forward to a most excellent fall!  We will try to get in a few more good hikes and we plan on visiting our kids again in October!!  Fall also brings amazing colors and Yellowstone National Park and all the beauty that holds!  I'm totally looking forward to the days ahead!!  What exciting days they will be!!  I'm so excited to share that I have some collaborations in motion with Pink Persimmon Stamps!!  I'm looking forward to sharing more with you in the days to come!!

 In the meantime, I've been having a ton of fun with the August CupCards {to go} kit!!  What a pretty little kit it is!!  Introducing Petunia!!!
I had so much fun with this little kit and the truth is I'm still have more projects in store for this kit!!  I wish there was more time in the day to play, that's for sure!! The first card features this month's sketch:
The papers in this kit are so beautiful!! I have never used Magnolia papers before, but as you can tell with this butterfly paper, it's goreous!!
The tags included in the kit are absolutely gorgeous too! Soooo shiny and pretty!  Oh, and the ribbon and flowers are sooooo very beautiful too!! This kit is just as beautiful as can be!!
You gotta love Chevrons and seam binding ribbon!! The combination along with a butterfly and resin rose totally makes me swoon!!  The following card is my favorite card made with the kit!!!  I just love the magnolia papers and I added a couple of butterflies and flowers and summery and pretty!
The next card was inspired from the sentiments in the kit.  I used an older paper from a previous CC2G kit and made a little house and layered it on top of the beautiful doilies included in the kit.
I cheated and took a couple of flowers from the pink ribbon and created a sweet little floral border!  Love that ribbon!!!  Makes me so happy!!
 I am so proud of this card!  It is totally out of my comfort zone, but I layered the stickers included in the kit and added a stamped border and I'm totally happy with the results!  It's good to get out of my box on occasion!!

I loved this kit and I know you will too!! I'm sure the kits won't be around for long, so hurry on over to CupCards {to go} and get yours today!!  You'll be glad you did!!

I'll be seeing you soon with more goodies to share!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
