Friday Mash Up!

So much has happened in five days...On Monday morning we moved my MIL into a personal care home ~ we moved my FIL in, a week and a half before her...I have been packing and unpacking way to much lately... now a box delivered by a person in brown is totally different ~ Thanks UPS!
After I got home in the early afternoon...I got busy creating these banners as a little thank you gift for my girls ~ I only posted these two pictures as the other pictures didn't turn out very good! I finished creating at 5pm and my girls started coming over about 15 minutes later...we shared dinner together and drooled over the new catalogue ~ thanks ladies for your support throughout the year!

Then on Tuesday I packed for myself...knitting projects, carding supplies (oh what to I packed almost everything...just in case we needed it), toiletries and a change of clothes....this is where I went with my girlfriend ~ our annual personal retreat at her cottage!

 And this was what I created when we came in from our day of knitting on the adirondack's...we started knitting at 11am ~ came in for a bite to eat at 6pm and then began creating until 1:30am...I NEVER stay up that late...and did we have a blast!! Here's my little stash! And I helped my girlfriend create her card stash as well! She did a 10 card stash! What fun!!!

And two of my cards qualifies for the Friday Mash Up!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project using "Hexagons".
  2. Create a "Girly project".
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a "Girly project using Hexagons"

I never did a Mash Up...but this card qualifies for the "Girly Project"

And this one qualifies as well for a 'Girl Birthday Card'

these two cards just scream 'Sugar and Spice' to me!!!

What a fun day of visiting, creating and just spending quality girl time with my dear friend!
