Reasons Why I Love ...

Hello and welcome to February's version of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Members' Blog Hop. Hopefully you've been all around the other counterfeiters' blogs already and reached me via Leslie.  We've  been playing along with the first challenge of the month - to not include a photo on our project, just journalling!  I did a photo-less page earlier in the month, so I have cheated slightly with today's offering ... and made a Valentine's card!

I had fun with some more home made hexagon spots, a tag and a few of my office transfer letters from my February Counterfeit Kit.  I grabbed a swiss dot embossing folder for some texture, a date stamp and added a heart shaped brad from my stash.


That's not a lot of journalling, but I don't want Hubby to get too big for his boots LOL!  Inside I have stamped:
I

U
X
Thanks for hopping around with the counterfeiters ... if you missed any, the full list is available on the CKCB today.

That patterned paper in combination with those hexies makes for a very striking card :). And I hope he really likes it.

I hope he appreciated all your hard word Jemma and good to see you using your BS. Keep meaning to ask - where did you get the hexagon dies??

I LOVE your hexagons every time I see them! I think I shall pin this card so I remember to make some for myself :-)

I LOVE your card! I'm so "card challenged" (hee hee) I too am a fan of anything hexagon. I may want to scraplift it for a layout :)

Nothing says I heart you more than a hand made card, Jemma. It's gorgeous, love the hexagons, will have to check out the tutorial again and have go.
You're my last stop on the blog hop today, it's been fun getting to meet the other participants and see how they interpreted the challenge.

What a great card! I love all the stamping and the way you've clustered your elements within the boxes. Wonderful!

Lisa said...

this is a super card and the hexagons work so well. I especially like that you mixed up the sizes and the elements within each one.

I'm so into hexagons at the moment, so this card is right up my street

You always think of such new and clever ideas! I'm pretty sure your artistic vision knows no boundaries! This card gave me a different way to view hexagons, so thanks yet again for inspiring me in a new way.
