Hexagon Heaven!

Hexagons are all the rage now, aren't they? I just got a new hexagon die from Sizzix (as a gift - thanks to my in-laws!) and I love it!  I went right to my craft space and came up with this card.  :)  I also really like this My Mind's Eye "fine and dandy" 6x6 patterned paper pad. The sentiment is from this Hero Arts set. I kept the sentiment and embellishments very simple on this card since the hexagons are the main focal point.

Thanks for stopping by. We're still having very nice spring weather here and I love it! :)  Hope you're having a great week!

supplies: Hero Arts stamp, Sizzix die, Sew Easy twine, Hero Hues gem, TH distress ink

Tuesday Trigger - Simple Elegance

I wanted to play along with the Tuesday Trigger Simple Elegance on the Moxie Fab World blog and finally found some time to do it. Here is the inspiration photo.

And here is my card.  All stamps are Hero Arts. I created the background with Latte chalk ink and the Flower Dot Pattern stamp. It's one of my favorites. And I love Hero's new Word Art set too.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Liebster Award

This week I received a message from Linda, who told me she had awarded me with:

Thanks so much Linda for your kind words! If you haven't seen Linda's blog yet, go take a look. She makes  some amazing cards!

The Liebster Blog award was created for blogs with less than 200 followers. I have seen this award circulate many times but this is the first time I received it myself. With this award comes responsibilities. haha. :)

I have to:
1: Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you. Thanks Linda!
2: Reveal my five blog picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3: Copy and paste the award (see above) on my blog.
4: Hope that those that I award, forward it on to their favorite bloggers.

I have done 1, 2 and 3. Number 2 was hard. There are so many wonderful blogs out there. I wish I could just give everyone the Liebster Award, but since I can't, here are the 5 blogs in no particular order.


I hope you'll have a chance to go check out their blogs. And thanks again Linda!  Have a great weekend everyone!

I finally had a chance to play along with the CAS-ual Fridays challenge this week.

I made this baby card. I'm not sure if it's a CAS card, but it is a baby card. :)  I used an older stamp set from Hero Arts as well as a newer set for the little dog and bird. I also used an SRM sticker for letters (Thanks Virginia!)

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you don't have a "case of the Mondays." Remember that from the Office Space movie?  Makes me laugh every time I hear that.

Digi Tulip

Hey there! I created this card awhile back with the digi tulip image from Hero Arts. I printed it on white cardstock and then colored the image with Copic markers and cut it out. I also used Hero Arts layering paper for the pink background panel. This is another card that reminds me of Spring. I love tulips. :)

I will be doing a giveaway soon! I have collected a few stamps and other random crafty things. I just need to take a photo and post it here on the blog. Hope you will come back to join in the fun!  :)
