True Colors... 52

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, June 14, 2012 @ 4:20 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great day! I needed one more birthday card for a sweet GF of mine so I pulled out some of my favorite paper crafting products and this is what I came up with: 
It seems as though Hexagons are the latest craze in paper crafting so I jumped on the wagon and indulged in the new Die-namics Haxagon dies! So fun!!! I used the dies to cut various pretty patterned paper from the Pink Paislee London Market collection and finished off the card with an inspirational sentiment from the My Favorite Things Clearly Sentimental about Art set.
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current My Favorite Things sketch challenge:
On another note, I FINALLY captured a photo of some sweet baby Quails scurrying across my backyard. If you really look, you will see the teensy weensy feathers on top of their head which is a unique characteristic to Quails :)
Thanks so much for visiting! Be Sweet :)
