Hexagon goodness...

I adore these new Hexagon dies from Clear and Simple Stamps! There are 6 dies all together and each die comes with its own coordinating frame stamp.  LOVE that!  It's a great combo!  Here is a card I made using the new dies...

I added a little patterned paper background and then placed some burlap.  I attached the hexagons with foam tape.  On top of that, I added some felt roses I made using the Build a Flower dies.  Oh and a twine bow too!  The "missing you" sentiment is from Simply Stated 2, and I just masked off the "you".  

We are right in the middle of VBS this week so it has been crazy around here!  No card making going on at this house!  That and the pool.  I look like a tomato this week.  Yes I forgot sun screen!  I put it on the kids and I was in such a hurry, I forgot about myself!  I usually know better but the sting of a sunburn will help me remember for next time, I'm sure!  We have a fishing derby this weekend and an outdoor movie in the park! It should be a fun weekend!  

 Hope you are having a great week!  Thanks for stopping in today!

Love the strip of burlap on and great arrangement you created with
the hexagons. Wonderful as always.

VBS is always a crazy busy week - and I'm usually exhausted at the end of it as I'm always working with the kids. But always worth it :) Sounds like your summer is off to a great start and what a fun weekend ahead.

So super cute!! I finally got to do some hexagons, too! :) I looked for a set of nesting dies locally, and around the time I decided to just order some ... I then changed my mind and decided I could cut them with my Cameo ... :) Duh! :)
