FM113 Girly Hexes

Things are starting to heat up away from the stamp room these days, with the rush of the last month of school and mountain bike races every weekend.  Little Missy has birthday parties three weekends in a row and her yearly skating performance tomorrow.  Why is June such a crunch?  I'm sorry my blog posts are getting a little bit less frequent.

Erica brings us todays Friday Mashup challenge, Girly Hexes.

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "Hexagons".
  2. Create a "Girly project".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Girly project using Hexagons".
I need to start working on end-of-school-year teacher and bus driver thank you gifts.  The inspirational photo got me going down the path for this project, which works for both the challenge and the gifts.

I'm going to fill the little purse with DSP-wrapped chocolates.  Using hexagon-patterned paper is the extent of my mashup today.  I'm in love with the little chalkboard look!


I used this week's Freshly Made Sketches challenge for the card.

Stamps: Feel Goods; Paper: Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Baked Brown Sugar, Basic Black, Whisper White, Tea for Two DSP; Ink: Soft Suede, Whisper White Craft, Versamark; Accessories: White baker's twine, Daffodil Delight satin ribbon, Silver brads, Slot punch, Bird punch, 1-1/4 Scallop Circle punch, Sponges, Woodgrain EF, Petite Purse die, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Join me tonight for Virtual Stamp Night!  I'll be your host at 10pm.  VSN runs 6-10pm tonight and noon-10pm tomorrow.  I'll get a chance to share some of the other cards I've secretly been working on.  ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
