FM148 Hexagons and Triangles

Hello and Happy Friday. I apologize for not posting this week but things are certainly busy around here. I have never spent so much time with my family but I have certainly been enjoying the time together.

This week Lynda's challenge stumped me. I was talking with my partner and I told him about the challenge and said I had no idea what to do. His simple answer "You can use triangles and hexagons on a bird house card". *ding ding ding* The lights went on and I went to work. I am so glad I have such a brilliant partner! 

I LOVE how my card turned out. I cannot wait to give it away and see the smile spread across my mom's face. 

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

1. Create a project with "Hexagons".
2. Create a project with "Triangles".
3. Create a project using "Hexagons" & "Triangles"

Wondering were the sentiment came from? 

I created the sentiment with MDS and printed it!!!! Thank you MDS!!!

Are you wondering how I did the birds eye?

To create all the dimension in the roof, bird house and bird I sponged around the edges using the same color of the card stock. It really helps to make everything pop.

  1. Oh how sweet! What a great idea using the hexagon as the hole in the birdhouse. Love the roof :)

  2. Very clever, Avery! Mashing at its best! Love birds and their houses so this card is so cool in my eyes! Love that scalloped roof- reminds me of a roof I made for a doghouse out of a stove box for VBS one year- brought back a fun memory for me!

  3. So cute!! This is such a great way to work the challenge, I love it!
