Such a Creative New Sponsor……and GIVEAWAY

!!!!!!!!!!!GIVEAWAY CLOSED!!!!!!!!!!!

I love to create cards to accompany a gift or to slip in the mail for a birthday.

But you know, unless someone gives me the supplies, it just never happens.
That’s why I LOVE my newest sponsor.

Deena from Be Creative is a mom of 2 girls, with a flair for color and combining beautiful supplies.  She has been teaching card-making classes for 7 years and enjoys the outlet that it gives her.  More recently, she has decided to offer her pre-cut card kits to everyone……..not just those who attend her sold-out card making classes.  And she calls these mail-out kits her Homeschool kits…..because instead of attending her classes, you are doing all the work at home.  Darling!
The great thing about her card kits, is that all of the hard work is done.  She has selected the colors, located the perfect embellishments, and cut everything to its perfect size.  
All you have to do is assemble.  
And that’s the most fun part anyway.
And with her kits, you receive all of the supplies necessary to complete 5 adorable cards.  
Perfect to keep, give away, or save for an upcoming birthday/event.
Check out her most recent kit for September, found here.  
Don’t they all just make you smile?
Deena creates a new kit for each month.  All kits from past months are found here.
Here’s the kit for August……
And July…….
Here’s sweet May…….
Oh oh, April……..
Here’s the kit for March……….
And February……..
Aren’t they all the perfect little collections?  I love the sweetness of each one.
Deena also creates other creative kits, found here.
Like this purse and notecard set……..
Lovely.  All of it.
And these 2 embellished bags.  Great for gifts or even table-top decor.  You decide.

Isn’t Deena’s work fantastic?  
I love looking at how she puts things together and adore her monthly collections of pure beauty.
And if you want to be inspired by her other past cards, take a moment to browse through her photo gallery here.  Stunning.
Be sure to check out her blog here, to see what other projects she’s working on.
And yes, Deena has decided to give away some of her beauty to one of you.
She is giving away her most recent kit, September…..complete with the supplies to create all 5 cards shown below.  
I just happen to love all of the colors she used for this month.  Ahhh…..
