Hexagon card

Good morning everyone, very windy here today, sun earlier
but now we have rain boo hoo! Here is another card for
this week's  'Less is More' challenge. This time it's a theme
which is .......................................................................
I was so happy to be chosen again for the showcase,
 ( happy dance), thankyou Chrissie and Jen :) 
I haven't got any hexagon type stamps or papers etc.
 so panic set in at first ( no change there then). Then I
 came up with  this idea. I chose an image from my GCF 
( Greeting card  Factory) programme. I made it into a pentagon,
 then  squished  the top to make it into a hexagon shape.
All that  sounds quite easy but the programme is working
 erratically  atm.  ( to put it mildly) and it kept switching
 to a different edit mode grrrrr! .
 After almost losing the will to live I  managed to do it however.
 I faded some of the images,altered the size and moved them
 around etc. then I added a sentiment and printed & cut it
 out. I 3d that  piece onto another card base & added 
my usual glamour dust. Job done.............and relax.
ps.It's been a strange week, happy news about the new
 grandbaby ( smiles). Then our DIL got made redundant,
then she aquired another job she had been after the very
 next day lol.
 Oh and I have lost 5 lbs on my new 'diet', hate that
 word....but it is one really. Just hope the weight loss
 continues next week now lol.
Have a lovely weekend  whatever you have planned :)
 I plan to relax after finishing  both  grandbabies first year
 albums at long last.Oh and here is my first effort at digi 
scrapbooking too, hope you like it.

First effort at digi scrapbook page.
 Also entering the Hexagon card into another challenge now.

Hi Viv, love your hexagons, I was wondering what to do as I haven't succumbed to the current trend yet! I may cut some out with my silhouette. Alex's page is gorgeous, digi scrapping is such an amazing tool:) It was gorgeous here yesterday but cooler and very windy with threatening clouds today! Off out with Charlie for some lunch and a bit of retail therapy:)

Love your hexagon card Viv... that sounds so technical to me... but is fabulous! And love your layout too... lovely way to keep memories.

You have had a busy week by the sounds of it... lots of ups and downs... but hopefully all is well now..

Can I ask a favour... don't know if it's just me, but I find your text hard to read.... love the font so don't want that changed cos it's gorgeous.... but could you put a line space/para in here and there?? LOL!! Think my eyes need it!! hehe! Gawdd... I do sound like a moaner... but I like to read what you write!

Big hugs
Christine x
