Hexagons!

I have finally joined in on the hexagon craze! I couldn't stand it any longer and ordered the Die-Namics Hexagons Die. What I like about it, is it comes with three different sized hexagons. For my card today, I only used the larger one.

I had such fun yesterday playing with these pretty papers from the 6x6 paper pad by My Mind's Eye called, Follow Your Heart. I cut all the different papers and placed them against the black cardstock, then added the panel to the fun, honeycomb piece. The sentiment is from Hero Arts' Valentine Sayings set.


I thought I might as well enter this into the Moxie Fab World's Hooked on Hexagons challenge - why not?!

Thank you all for your well wishes the other day - I am feeling a bit better today - heading to work soon. Can't wait to get home later and play with more hexagons!

Enjoy your day! :)

So glad you are feeling a bit better Barb! I'm trying not to buy the hexagon dies, but it is an ongoing conversation with myself that I don't need everything :)!!! What's a girl to do?! Love your card...the sweet little tag is perfection against all the gorgeous paper.

Oh I love the black background against your hexagons! Very very nice. And the honeycomb is a great idea (very worthy of a lift!).

So glad to hear you are feeling better!

So glad you're feeling better, but I didn't know you had to work this weekend, sorry you couldn't just recover. How fun to get into hexagons! I haven't hopped on the train yet, but I'm running after it! Your papers are beautiful and so fun together in those geometric shapes.
