Hexagonal Sky

It's a great feeling when you let your crafting supplies take you for a ride. It happened here, on this New Home card. The patterned papers -- which wound up being the sky -- were on my desk for another project, and I had already punched them out with the Fiskars Hexagonal Punch

I started arranging the punched out pieces along the top of a card base, not knowing yet where it would lead. I knew I needed more New Home cards for the shop (they're a popular seller), so then I stamped a house image from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Home and colored it in tones to match the patterned papers.  Then, I added a fence, and clouds, and a tree.  :-)  A sweet little scene!

I love creating little scenes on card fronts. I have blended my love of miniatures (my dad and I built a dollhouse together when I was in my late teens) with cardmaking!

Thanks for joining me today. :-) Be blessed, and have a wonderful day!
