Good Morning Ladies,
Phew what a scorcher!!! Yesterday ended up being just too hot to craft, after Paul left for work I went into my craft room but it was just too hot, I think that the heat exacerbated the symptoms of my AF, I was struggling to breathe comfortably even when sitting. It's a really warm room, it has too windows on opposite walls that let the sun pour in, there wasn't any breeze coming in the windows either, I went and fetched a fan but that was just recirculating the hot air, so I ended up stripping off and laying on my bed with the fan on me for a couple of hours......Bliss!
So for todays post I have rewound a couple of years (3 to be exact) to share this Hexagon card, it's one of the few cards of mine that I look back on and love, although I do wish I had added a few more flowers to the top right to balance the look a bit more! Oh the luxury of hindsight!
Here's the Description from that day too:
''I recently had the urge to make different shape cards, to challenge myself and do something different, so I order a set of Sizzix Thinlets Plus Hexagon dies, I then spotted that Sue Wilson's Pacific die range had a Hexagonal theme to so I ordered the Bora Bora die (well and the striped Nasturtiums but that's another story)! The two die sets work perfectly together, so I have been itching to make a card with them, so last night after tea was sorted I retreated to my craft room and the above card is the result.
I basically used one of the larger Hexagons to die cut a card base (I just use an 8x8 white card), I then cut a blue Matt, then. Slightly smaller white one, I die cut the Bora Bora die background in blue, the detail part in white, another blue frame, the centre from Pat's Tahiti die and then my stamped Sentiment.
I then cut out my flower box and my glue gun and arranged some flowers on the side and a small spray on the opposite side for balance.
I really hope you like it.''
I think that we will all be having a take it slow day today, please take it easy ladies,
Sending you love and hugs,
