A Taste Of Summer
I've seen a few cards featuring hexagons and I loved the look of them so I purchased a die namics die cut for hexagons, it's a 2 part die and the hexagons quite small . Papertrey has a fabulous one but it's a US company that doesn't trade in the UK.
Must say gluing the hexagons in place (with out a grid ) is a labour of love, fun to me though. It's not perfect but the over veiw is something I'm pleased with.
I saw this gorgeous card and that was my inspiration for mine.
The papers I used are by raspberry road, the pad was a magazine freebe last Summer. The stamp is from a die namics set and the strawberry a spellbinder die cut. I matted the sentiment on green bazil and cut the edges with my crafters companion clever cut.
Challenges entered :
charisma cards : anything goes
Lady Anne's : anything goes
world art : anything goes/love
just got back from my new job, not very glamorous, cleaning for an old couple from church. They are lovely people and are finding their rather large house hard to manage but they don't want to move.
I forgot what hard work it is (warms you up no end though ) ,my own is cleaned everyday and is always just so (except the craftroom ) and I had the Church working like clockwork. I think there are a lot of older folk that need help with everyday things but lack the money to pay for it!
