Hexagon Fun

Hi guys!
I've been very, very busy on the Project Life front and have joined two brilliant groups on facebook, but I have made some changes too.  As soon as I've got some piccies ready, I'll update you on my progress.
In the meantime, I've been extremely busy on the card-making front as well.  I work in a care home and I make a card for each resident on their birthdays for all the staff to sign.  I had no idea there were so many in November and December.  This is partly why I haven't been on here so regularly, I've actually been making the cards and thoroughly enjoying this amazing hobby.
As well as that I run a card swap group.  There are ten members and we make a card for one other person in the group each month.  This is the card I made for Aileen Skene's birthday in October:

I saw something similar on Pinterest (if I ever find it again I promise I'll credit it) using a different dsp of course.  I am actually winning the battle to get through my dsp supplies, largely thanks to Project Life usage, so this was a great way to use up some of the smaller pieces I have left.  I had to really study it to work out how it's made, as the base layer is white, then a layer of Island Indigo card stock.  Then I cut the white top layer out and cut out the hexagon with my dies.  I cut out a small piece of white cardstock to stamp the sentiment on and stuck that onto the back of the top piece.  Then I die cut some little hexagons from the beautiful Twitterpated dsp.  I started with the bottom hexagon first, stuck that in place exactly where I wanted it, then trimmed off the bottom before adding  the rest of the hexagons.  I added a few little punched out flowers and there we are!  This was a really fun card to make and I was captured by the cleverness of it.  I'd definitely make some more as they're a great way to use up those last bits of dsp.  And once you've done that, you've got the perfect excuse... to go out and buy some more!
Happy crafting everyone
