The weather down here in the South West today is wet and miserable so that's enough reason to stay in and enjoy some cardmaking.
So, without further ado, here's my first make of the day...
This was actually my second attempt at this card. The first time I used the embossed impression of the honeycomb background but I decided it looked a little too harsh so I started again and used the reverse side, i.e. the debossed impression. I stamped the dotted images onto a scrap of white cardstock and used a small hexagonal die to cut these out. The embossing folder is by Sizzix from Stampin' Up and the hexagonal die is from Clearly Besotted but they work brilliantly together! I arranged the hexagons in a floral pattern, adhered these to the debossed panel and then framed the panel with turquoise cardstock and used the same cardstock to die cut the 'thanks'. Another reason I'm so glad I used the debossed side....it made it so much easier to stick down my word die!

I hope to be back with more to share later on today. Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you're all enjoying your Sunday...and probably even more if you're one of those lucky people who are now relaxing on your Easter break. Unfortunately for me, tomorrow is just a normal Monday at work.
I hope to see you again soon.
