I'm going to blame that terrible pun on either too much cold medicine, or not enough. It's one of those two. I sent Ryan to school today for the first time all week (he was Most Displeased and told me so at top volume several times, but he went) and I am doing my best to stay vertical and do some laundry. While I'm waiting for the next load to come out of the dryer, I made this:
Hexagons everywhere. I started with this week's Freshly Made Sketch:
I started out by cutting a whole lot of hexagons with the Beautiful Shapes dies, and then just piling them on my card front until I liked it. I'm also entering this at Festive Friday:
I used green, gold (it's very subtle, but the Genial Gems I used have gold glitter in them and for some reason I just really liked them with the bees), and luck. And a punny sentiment if you count my blog post title.
Next up is the Color Throwdown:
I used Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, and Parakeet Party. All my hexes were cut from scraps of DSP in my stash, yay!
Finally, here's the Cupcake Inspirations challenge:
Which is what kind of brought the other three challenges together for me. The Color Throwdown was good bee colors, the stamp set has a good luck sentiment in it for the Festive Friday challenge, and the hexagons worked with the Freshly Made Sketch.
Time to switch out the laundry. Stay healthy, y'all.
