Bee get well card and honeycomb (hexagons) silhouette cut file freebie

I made a honeycomb stencil last month for a scrap page and thought I'd pull it up again to enter another card in the Less Is More hexagon challenge .   The stamp is Stampin UP.  I cut the background with my silhouette (that file available below)  from white and layered it over white.  Now I feel like I need to do something with all the little hexagons that I scrapped off the mat...hummm.

Honeycomb silhouette file: PSI_Honeycomb

I also finished another little project for this week - a messenger style purse/bag.  I used two coordinating quilting cottons and then some craft weight liner in between.  I used a magnet closure, the vintage button is cosmetic only.  I even put a couple pockets inside.  Pretty good for a girl who can't sew!  I didn't use a pattern - just made it up as I went (I haven't actually figured out how to read patterns yet, soon!)

Thanks for looking!

Chicken and Lobster

This weeks challenge at Less is More is to use hexigons - a great excuse to pull out my chicen wire embossing folder.  The stamp is from stampin up Best of Cluck.  I stamped the image right on craft and then used prisma pencils to color.

As long as I had the ink out...I also made another one with my current favorite set : Stampin Up By the tide.   That bit of string is from a bit of actual recycled fishing net - I just happen to have had it in my pocket ( really).   I had just been netting my chicken coop so my baby turkey won't fly out and become a coyote snack when I'm  not around.  Want to see her?

Here are the newest editions to my flock, 3 chicks and a turkey (about 6 wks old now)
The barred rock (dark black and white) is Andy's, the dark Araucana is Carstens, and the light Araucana is mine, the rest are my sisters that I am chick sitting for her until they are bigger.

Normally turkeys are not pretty, but I think her spotted feathers are just lovely

Daisy does a great job of watching the babies when they are not in the fenced area.

Thanks for looking!
