Happy Birthday!

Good morning! Two weeks ago I mentioned that my card took f-o-r-e-v-e-r to complete because, well, I lost my creative mojo. I think it was the move that put a damper on things... my creative space was in chaos, I only had access to a fraction of my supplies, and moving is so stressful! But now that my office is (mostly) set up, I am creating cards like crazy! And this card was especially fun to put together. 

I created the hexagon paper by die cutting a variety of BasicGrey papers with a Hero Arts hexagon die (that I just received for winning the January contest with this card) and arranging them on a sheet of 4 x 4 1/4 white cardstock. I played around with the arrangement before adhering the hexagons permanently. I die cut the little banner and stamped with Great Impressions Stamps Happy Birthday stamp onto it, adhered it, then added a few buttons and twine. Super simple, but the results are really fun! 


I finished this card yesterday and I needed to get a picture of it before the sun went down, so I propped it on my desk and took one photo. Just one. When I was doing the editing I noticed the big red blob in the background... yup, that is a bag of peanut butter M&M's. My cardmaking snack of choice this week... a little messy, but they make me happy. :-)

And don't forget... only one more day to enter this month's challenge! You can read all the details here

Have a great week!
