Simon Says Happy Mail

I love this Impression Obsession sentiment stamp and I use it often when I'm making cards for OWH. I made a few cards using snipped hexagons cut from scraps, and added little smiley faces to the solid color hexes. The matching twine is from American Crafts and the butterfly was done with a punch-a-bunch. The Simon Says Challenge this week is "Happy Mail" so I'll be entering my card there.


Here are the others I made using scraps and assorted colors. I'm still working in assembly line mode - trying to use all these left-over scraps that take up way too much room! I think I could do this for a year and still not empty my scrap bin! LOL I may have to order a case of adhesive rolls at the rate I've been creating lately.

Since I'm using bits of scraps, I'm also entering my card in the Pixie's Crafty Snippets Playground #70.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you get some happy mail today too :)

Great cards, Carol. I love the little smiling face. In a year, if you run out of scraps, I can send you some. I really need rid of them....or use them, which I don't seem to be doing. :(

Leave it up to you to find something to do with these hexagons. All nice colors. Love the smiley face. MIL just came home this morning. Maybe this will afford me a bit more time to craft now. One can only hope.

Wonderful cards! Such a great, flexible design... they all look so different, but all you did was change up the color patterns. Brilliant! :) Thank you for joining us in the "Happy Mail" challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog!

Another great set of cards polished off. Love the butterfly that takes the place of one of the hexagons!
