Hugs to You!


I made this card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is to use a rubber or clear stamp. I'm also entering this one into Pixie's Snippet Playground #93 since I added snippets of cardstock and ribbon to put this one together.

The image is by Inky Antics, and I colored it with Copics, adding a punched frame done with a retired SU! punch. The background was embossed with a honeycomb ef, and I fussy cut the sentiments and coordinating hexagons and adhered them randomly into the background. The finished touch was a little piece of ribbon to one corner.

This card is packed and ready to send to Cards for Hospitalized Kids.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get lots of good hugs today too :)

What an adorable image and great coloring job. My favorite part is the random hexagons you filled in with paper.

This is totally adorable, Carol! I especially like how you punched little pieces of cardstock and the greetings to fit in the honeycomb. The soft colors are very sweet, too. Another smile-maker for those precious kids!

Aw, this little poochie is just plumb cute with his kitty budy hugged close. Loved the way you used this hexagon EF, adding the spots of color, and brilliant to add the tiny sentiment in some of the spaces. What a pretty color combo too. TFS & Hugs
