Just Awesome

I could spend an entire day usingย  Neat & Tangled’s Hexastar Cover Plate! I always think I will trim it up and use it differently. And eventually I will, but I love to inlay it! So that’s what happens when I sit down to use it ๐Ÿ™‚


I also used their awesome Awesome die. ๐Ÿ™‚ Can you use the same adjective to describe the noun? Haaaaa! ๐Ÿ™‚


This is a dark navy color and a bright flamingo pink. Quite spring like, and fitting for the most bazarro warm weather we have been having here this February! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m joining in the Little Tangles Challenge by the skin of my teeth! Check it out HERE.

Also, my friend Miriam, who designed this Hexastar Cover plate I used above, designed more gems for Neat & Tangled that just released… THIS and THIS! So brilliant! Both are on my wish list, along with a dozen other things. Always, right?! ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

Friend, Hello Again!

I’m convinced I could use this Hexastar cover plate from Neat & Tangled and never tire of all the possibilities! I wanted to participate in the new Little Tangles challenge this month, so I started there…and then, this happened! ๐Ÿ™‚

hawkins_jill_cool hello_wmThe challenge this month is working off the photo below. So naturally, I thought, Hexastar for the Umbrellas. Then I ended up doing just the diamonds in the Flamingo pink. Well, when you finish a pattern on these die, it looks different from what you may have envisioned! In a good way, but funny! I was going for a diagonal pattern and it started looking more linear, so I added the navy…and whammo!! Totally different, totally cool! ๐Ÿ™‚hawkins_jill_cool hello_00_wmIn then end, I was inspired by the photo (love umbrellas!) and I can see it reflected in this card. Have I mentioned how much I ADORE this cover plate?! I’m hoping Miriam comes up with another! wink wink ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰
