Sea of Yellow Flowers...


Hello my sweet friends.
I am sharing some photos with you that I took
last summer.  I have been busy trying to get some of
my photos off my computer this morning and came across
these photo. 



While camping in California we had decided to get up early
one morning and go to a swap-meet..  As we were driving we came
across this field of  flowers.



You know I made my hubby pull over so I could get 
some photos of the sea of yellow that was on the side of the road.

Such a beautiful site.


*******

So let me show you what I have come up with for this weeks



The theme this week is "I been Hexed".
So many of you are using hexagons on your projects so 
Cheryl our host for this week decided to have us use them for
our challenge.  All you need to do is use a hexagon on your project. 



I have seen so many wonderful projects out there using
hexagons.  But I have to admit I was stumped.  I did try to do
a page in my Art Journal.  But that turned out pretty scary. 


So a card it is.. With all my favorite things. 


You can head on over to CCCB site to get all the details
or just to check out what all the other gals have created.. 

We are not the only ones who have a hexagon challenge this
week.  Over at Moxie Fab World they are also using hexagons this week.
So I am liking up with them as well.. 



Thanks so much for stopping by.
I really do appreciate all your kind comments.


Hugs~

Love the flower photos. Yellow is such a bright, happy color. The shallow depth in the first two images is so pleasing. Enjoyed your take on hexed!

Love your card, Linda. Such soft vintagey (is that a word?) colours. I don't blame you for asking hubby to pull over. What a beautiful sight.

Patches or fields of flowers like that always make me think of the movie "The Wizard of OZ" and I start humming that song. So pretty!

Somehow I doubt the art journal page was scary LOL but I do know that your card is incredible. I love the way you've used the hexagons. They are so hot right now. This is very much a "Linda feel" card and I love it! Hugs!

Gillian Olson said...

Love the field of yellow flowers, and does your husband actually pull over and let you take pictures when you ask him to?? perfect. Love the card, reminds me a bit of honeycombs.

Michelle said...

I would have loved the field of flowers, too. So nice of your hubby to stop...mine would have kept right on going, which is why I still haven't participated in barn charm yet. The only nice barns I see are when he's with. Oh well...love him dearly. :)

Stella said...

Your DT projects are always lovely to look at. Your use of hexagons is just brilliant. . Love this color scheme too. And your photos? Gorgeous; as usual:)
Hugs!

Julie said...

Hello my lovely Linda, I've been a bit on the busy side so although I've still been calling by via my smart phone, it isn't always happy to let me coment from it. Love the yello flowers, simply beautiful, mother nature did good I'd say. Your hexigans take me back to one of my earliest school sewing projects, a pin cushion,the stitching I'm sure was dreadful but at the time I was most proud. Hoping you are keeping well, Julie.x

Ida said...

What pretty flowers and that shot of the whole field of them, Wow! Good thing you made hubby pull over.

Loved your card too. Very pretty.

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Lovely field of yellow, and I love the soft tones of your beautiful creation!

S. Etole said...

What a wave of sunshine. Love those sunny flowers. Your card is charming as well.

Karen said...

lovely card...wonderful photos...so inspiring...

nancy jane said...

The photographs are amazing. I especially love the first one. Those hexagons didn't stump you too terribly much because the card is lovely with the row of hexagons. It is a great combination of sharp angles and soft curves.

Cath said...

Hey Linda! Thanks for linking this up to the Hooked on Hexagons Challenge in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
