Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) Challenge Blog - Geometric Shapes

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends

Where is the time going it is Thursday already. Today I am having lunch with a friend to celebrate her birthday. I hope you have something nice planned.

The new challenge starts on the Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) Challenge blog and the theme for the next fortnight is Geometric shapes.

I used some of the bonus papers I had printed for a card for Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. I didn't have quite enough for the background of the card so I reprinted one of the patterns and made it bigger to fit the card. 

I cut the papers with some hexagon dies that came with one of the Crafter's Companion Inspiration Magazines. I do love the flamingos. 

The sentiment came from the bonus papers to. It was cut out with one of the Double Pierced Rectangle dies from Creative Expressions. 

Yesterday I helped my friend (she is in the middle) as she led a felting workshop. The ladies all made four coasters and a flower to make a brooch. I got to bring home a poppy I had helped to make. When it is finished I will share a photo of it with you. I have some other dates lined up to help it is lots of fun. 

I was quite pleased with how this tropical themed card turned out. I do like using hexagons on cards. 

Enjoy the rest of the week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
