Sweetest Things


I have recently become addicted to hexagons and chicken wire patterns. My DH thinks I am crazy with all this talk of chicken wire! 

My friend Jean's birthday is coming up, so I made her this card. I made the base with my Tim Holtz embossing folder (love it!) and traced and hand cut out these hexagons from a 6x6 Studio Calico pad "Classic Calico." I also used my new Memory Box branch die for the first time. Amazing! And stamped, embossed and cut out the butterfly. The sentiment is a MFT stamp.




I also linked up with Simon Says Stamp and Show "anything goes" challenge this week.

Happy Birthday Jean!
Thanks for dropping by!
