Crazy About Hexagons – AHSC #101

I love the difference a little craft time makes!

The Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge has another awesome sketch challenge this week.  I’m not sure how Michelle keeps coming up with them, but the inspiration is delightful.




I didn’t really want to work with flowers and had seen a cute card on Pinterest that I thought would work for this sketch.  Since we also have a huge amount of Mason Bees buzzing around the farm I reached for my Hexagons stamp set and Buzz and Bumble accessories.  I spent 20 minutes looking for my Buzz and Bumble paper, but wasn’t able to find it.  Hmmm, Kraft paper and Chocolate Ink to the rescue!







I kept the inside simple only lining the bottom with Scallop Punched Gold Shimmer Trim.  Here’s a hint, leave the lining on while you punch!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog I hope you’ll hop over the the AHSC to see what the amazing design team has been up to and if they recovered from their 100th Sketch last week.


What To Do On A Snowy Day?

It is rare that snow happens in Western Washington, but when it does you don’t want to be outside.  What to do?  I’m not much of a TV person and my Kindle just wasn’t calling my name.  Create came to mind, of course!

I have been waiting for a good reason to use the new Kraft Die Cut Cards from Close to My Heart and since I had Roxie paper at my fingertips from making things for my Valentine class I paired them up and am very happy with the results.

I kinda hope it snows again so I can keep creating!
