I was invited to an OWH card party in March and I've been working on a few kits to take with me. The hostess asked me to make three. In typical fashion, I couldn't keep myself to three. I figure I'll just keep making them while my mojo permits and if I don't take them all to the party, I will assemble them myself. It's a win-win. I'm motivated to make nice kits and OWH will get lots of cards!
Do you have an opinion about which kits I should take? From what I understand, most of the guests at the party aren't card makers, so they're pretty much only going to need to assemble the kits and maybe do some simple coloring.

|This sketch is a go-to favorite for me when I want to use several patterned papers. OWH Sketch #168. Here, I used up a good portion of a pack of Stampin' Up paper. (Mini rant: Why do they insist on putting their logo in the corner of each page? If I cut it off, I waste a lot of paper. If I don't, I've got a logo on my cards. Wah!) The stamp is by Studio G. The button punch by Martha Stewart was blog candy from JoAnn R.|
