It’s time for some Happy and I have 2 bright cheery Hex Frame designs to share! This post is part of a massive
hop #spreadjoynotgerms and I am so proud to be joining Ellen Hutson and you should have arrived here from KRISTIE’s Wonderful Blog!
My first card started with a Catherine Pooler blended background on which I stamped the Mondo Sakura,
and a sentiment from Latte Love (perfect for this occasion right?).
Then I added the Hex Frame die cut pieces to the front with some Confetti sequins.
My second card practices ‘Social Distancing’ as per my hubby’s instructions (apparently the other card was too close lol)
This time I added some Backyard Party friends
You can see the video for this card at IGTV which you will find at my Instagram channel.

I love the bright colors of these cards-it does put a smile on my face! Thanks for participating!
I love this colour combo and that flower stamp. The hex layout and the sentiment are great too. I feel sorry for the owl though, looks like he can’t reach the ice cream. Is there something about staying home that makes one want more unhealthy food?
Yes definitely! Last night for dinner I made Golden Syrup Dumplings with Cream….. it’s only the right thing to do lol.
Love your beautiful blended background and the way you die cut the shapes and arranged them. The 2nd card is so cute with those animals spaced apart. Cute sentiment.
Using the Hex for these lovely works of art is so amazing -love this stunning work TFS
Gorgeous- simply gorgeous!
The colors on this were just stunning, such a beautiful design. Stay happy, and stay well!
Oooo what a stunning colour combo and I love how the colours all subtle tone in with the next one, the animal one is very cute though.
Oooo what a great idea to cheer everyone up, in these strange times, Luv Sam x
So happy to find you here Therese… that mondo is too beautiful and your blending, perfection. I do think your husbands idea also so appropriate right now. Thanks so much for joining in!
Love the second card. Simple, but cute.
I love your ink blending, Therese, and how the flower was placed on it. Cutting it with the hexes was such a unique idea and adds so much dimension.
Your social distancing cards are adorable!
I just love how you used the hexagon die and made such different cards! Love them!
Your creativity always amazes me! When I first saw the Hexagon Frames I thought, “Meh, how would I use that?” Then, I watched today’s video and thought, “Oh my gosh, that’s brilliant!” You have such a gift for seeing beyond the ordinary!
How much fun is that second card!!! And so perfect for these times … and a way to find a laugh. Perfect!! Thanks, Therese

Hi Clelie, you are right I do work in a hospital and feeling very lucky to have work to go to as so many now don’t. It’s scary times. Please stay safe and well, Crafty hugs Therese
Love the hexagons. Great inspiration.
Your first card is absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE it so much! The second card is great too!
Thank you for helping to spread joy!
I just recently started watching your videos on YouTube. I love your designs. I love both card designs – the colors images and geometric shapes. It think it’s cute that you created a social distancing card based on your husband’s suggestion. Well done.
I love the honeycomb design. I’m going to make something like that today….
Glorious cards! I love the Hex dies — it makes everything stand out. The little critters are so sweet and your blended background is lovely!
this cards are great. Love the owl card. Yeah, he’s practicing his social distancing, lol
I don’t know if I love the Hex background or the Sentiment most. I do know I want to create both~ Love this! It’s prefect for the times!
Love the beautiful ombre background you created — it looks like a window peeking through the hexagon frames!
Oh how fun your card is! Fun dimension, colors, the sentiment …Love it!!!! Only thing is, it’s not very peopley outside at the moment. Lol
Your cards are always amazing!
Gorgeous creations! Awesome event to spread Joy during these uncertain times! Thanks for the chance to win!
These are great!!! The owl is cute!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!!
Thanks for the amazing inspiration! These cards are really beautiful!
Love both cards. The first has a sophisticated feel, and the second just made me laugh.

Oh wow I love your cards. The wonderful colors, the sentiment, the raised hexes – everything. They brightened my day as soon as I saw them. Thank You.
Love what you did, the depth and texture are amazing! Yes, ice cream for me. I am gaining weight as I type, sigh.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cards and the video showing us how you made them. I love the backgrounds you created as well as the effect you got with the hex frame. You gave me inspiration. Please stay safe.

Darling cards! perfect for this hop! Thank you to all who have come together!
Gorgeous cards as always Therese! Such Fun!
I think it hilarious that per your husband ‘s direction, you made a second card! He sounds like a keeper! Funny too!
I am not familiar, as in owning, the Catherine Pooler inks; but they blend quite nicely! Such pretty colors and the sentiment is perfect for right now! (Although, there should be limited folk outside, but not everyone follows direction!!!!)
Enjoyed the video as always and your two fun cards! Hugs!!!
Oh my gosh, I love that sentiment! My daughter says that all the time, haha!
So cute and love your cards!!!
such beautiful cards! thanks for the video tutorial too x
Your first card is beautiful…but I’m totally in love with the second one!!
Just love both of your cards! The blending on your first card is amazing – and you chose such pretty colors to work with…gorgeous! The owl is so cute…but he really needs that ice cream! Lol. Thanks for all your amazing cards and happy videos! You always spread joy and brighten all of our days! Thanks for that, Therese! 💛💛💛 (sent this comment already, but something happened and it posted under “Anonymous” so I’m resending it here and hope it works correctly with my name)
You always create such beautiful, unique cards. I do love this one and will be trying to copy it soon., You’re so right that we are very fortunate to have this hobby. I’m thankful every day. When I get stressed (or just bored) I go up to my craft room and make a card, maybe trying a new technique or simply going through my stash and trying to get creative. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, but either way, it seems to ease my worries and I feel better.
Lovely cards and especially love the socially distancing critters. They are definitely “little pieces of happy”. Thank you for sharing.
Your color combination is great. The flower card is really pretty, and the “socially distanced” card has a great sense of white space. Thanks for sharing!
Therese I love everything about both of your cards & am delighted you chose to include the video of the first one using EH mondo Sakura as I don’t “do” Instagram. Not enough hours in the day for it. I am also delighted you showed the critter card here though. I wouldn’t have not wanted to see it as it is the sweetest! Your DH sounds like he’s a bit of a “brat” like mine with his humour. lol Thanks so much!
That hex frame is interesting. so different. To peopley, love that term. I love those cute little critters too. 🙂
Gorgeous and sweet cards! I love the colors on the first card and that bunny and owl make such adorable pals.
Oh I adore the colour combo and geometric design! And the sentiment is perfect! (and would apply to any time for me, not just these days, lol!)
Love both cards but have to admit the second one made me laugh out loud.
First of all, the sentiment cracks me up! Both your cards are wonderful, but that first one just made me gasp! WOW! Stunning!
Fabulous!! I really love the flower card!!
Two great cards – social distancing, flowers and ice cream. Doesn’t get any better than that! Thanks for sharing your lovely creations!
#spreadjoynotgerms blog hop – Love the hex die!
Your cards are wonderful, love the color combo!!! Stay healthy! Stay safe! Stay crafty!<3<3<3

catching the ice cream makes
a fun card. thanks for sharing
OMG – these cards are amazing – love the hexagon design of them and the coloring is awesome
I love both cards. At least the first one has some distancing (haha). The colors on both ards is great. I love those combinations. Thank you for sharing and stay safe.
Stunning colour combo on the blended background and super cute on the critters card.
I have been coveting the Mondo Sakura stamp for quite a while, but it never seems to be in stock. 😪 And I definitely don’t need another coffee set, but I would consider buying another one for that “it’s too peopley out”. Thanks for the inspiration!
Such charming cards, love them both. Thanks for sharing.
Love love these cards
Hehe, too peopley outside, not the first time I’ve heard that, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it as a sentiment! Brilliant! Love your hex design and I think your hubby was right the second ‘socially distanced’ card is perfect!! (Though I really love your floral one too)! Hugs, Wends xoxo
That first card is gorgeous. I love how you cut it out and pieced it together. The second card is so cute with the bunny and owl. Thanks for sharing,
That sentiment is so cute and funny! Your cards are beautiful and fun and cute. Can’t wait to check out your other one on instagram!
Great cards. I especially liked the owl and bunny card with their appropriate social distancing (per your hubby’s instructions lol).
LOVE your INKY AWESOMENESS and FABULOUS designs, LOVE that your husband shares in your CREATIVITY too, I’m so lucky to have a supportive husband too 🙂
Thank You for sharing and INSPIRING!
That’s such a gorgeous colour combo, Therese … a beautifully blended background for that fabulous mondo bloom! Love the graphic hexagon pattern … even if those individual hexagons aren’t socially distancing! The little critters on your second card are adorable … I feel sure the bunny will put that ice cream on a stick for the owl to reach before getting another for himself! Perfect sentiment … and so fun! Hugs, Anita 🙂
Fabulous cards, Therese. The first card is so lovely…like the hex cut idea. The second one is so cute! tfs-stay well.
I really love your cards. They are inspirational

Love both cards. The hexagon really pops on the card.
The social distancing critters – love it! Thank you for participating in this excellent way to encourage stay-at-home!
I tried to leave a message a few days ago to let you know how awesome your cards. I really love the hexagons and think your comment about social distancing with your second card I a hilarious comment during the crazy times we are dealing with. So if my other comment went thru to you, you deserve both 😉 thanks for sharing!!!❤️
Hey Deborah, thanks so much for the double comment! From what I can tell WordPress can be a little fickle at times, and I do appreciate that you returned to comment as you have made my day!! thanks so much, Stay safe (and inside crafting lol.) Crafty hugs, Therese
2 more great cards, Therese! Love them both. I must try some shapes in my cards! Next project???? Thanks for the great video! Stay safe! 🙂
I love this idea and look 🙂
Love the hexagons! Beautiful cards.
Absolutely stunning cards. Amazing design and brilliant colour choices. Thanks for sharing.
Great cards and cute images. I love the design.
Beautiful card, and the sentiment is so appropriate! I love how you created an entire panel by repeating the hex die.
I love the colors you used in your card and the technique for setting the hex pieces on the base. I actually wanted to make a card like this the other day and wasn’t sure how to get a good spacing. Thanks for sharing! Now I think I will go make one as well. By the way, LOL regarding your husband’s idea of proper distancing!! We will make it through, right?
Love your beautiful cards!
SWOON!! I LOVE your Cards that you shared!! Such SWEET Designs!! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!
Great cards. Love the colors and blending is perfect. Thanks for helping to spread joy.
Pretty and cute cards. Love the hexagons.
That first card is beautiful! The color combo is so pretty and so is the stamp. I love the sentiment on the second. It’s so funny-too peopley. Ha!! I just delivered today 86 cards that I made for nursing home residents. That was a labor of love. I have never made that many cards and probably never will again. I cheated on the last two and just got them out of my stash. I made them a long time ago. I was just too tired to make any more lol.
Love your inspiration thanks for the blog cop
Hi Therese 🙂 I love the way you used these hexagons on both cards but with such different looks!!! You’re sooooo inspiring!!! Thanks 🙂
Cute cards! I love your color choices!!
Great cards! Thanks for a wonderful hop and the inspiration!
