Hexagon Christmas

 I dreamed of this design last night so decided to put it to paper today and I quite like the outcome.

I used the "Happy Hexagons Stamp Set" from PTI and lined up the Hexagons into a XMas tree by using the Hexagon Die as my guide.

I then wanted a tree trunk and decided to use a sentiment to depict it.  The strip of designer paper at the bottom is from MME.

I liked this so much that I landed up making a set of 5 cards in this same design which is very, very rare for me.

We went for a walk to go and spot those zebras again this afternoon and we were not disappointed!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day!

OH MY, Brenda! Isn't it amazing how our minds are constantly at work, that even in our dreams we are creating. These BEAUTIES you've created simply confirm, that dreams really do come true. What an amazing dream that must have been, because these Christmas cards are SUPER-FABULOUS! What a clever use of the darling hexagons and sweet sentiment. The strip of pp is the perfect finishing touch! This is definitely a magazine-publishing-worthy-card. Beautifully done!

Love the sweet photo you've shared. Awwww, look at the darling Natasha! How wonderful that the zebras came out to visit with you, again. ENJOY!

Have a wonderful day!
