I really enjoy the team gatherings when we sit and chat without any pressure to "get it right." You can see with the cards from the 'Lots Of Happy' kit that we all used random colours for colouring and I even forgot to place my gold banner under the tag! We've decided that this is a great kit, with everything you need (maybe add some Tombow or snail) to make the set of cards up. The base set would give 4 participants 5 cards each to make, take home and send out. An enjoyable way to practise colouring. There are even 4 pencils included, so you can complete these cards in Old Olive and Lemon-Lime Twist for the leaves and Rich Razzleberry and Flirty Flamingo for the petals.
After we'd completed and admired those cards, I shared the challenge I had set for them. I felt like You're So Sweet hadn't been getting much inky love lately, so I printed off some pages from Pinterest and asked the ladies to CASE a card. I was actually surprised and very happy with the way they rose to the challenge with enthusiasm even!

Leanne knew exactly who she was making her card for and used splatters from Timeless Textures as well as a sentiment from a retired stamp, and the Mini Treat Bag Thinlet dies which go with this stamp set.
Angela decided she'd use mainly washi tape and has made such a nice clean card, perfect to send a note to anyone.
Mine wasn't too far different with the same star and 'hello' die cut and 'my friend' another stamp from You're So Sweet and the new washi tape from the Myths and Magic suite in the Occasions catalogue.
Hopefully next time even more of the team will be able to gather for a fun few hours.
