New sets from TSOL!

Hello, my friends!  Happy Monday!  It is back to business here in the good ole US of A after almost a week of birthday and holiday revelry! Thank you to all of you who sent birthday greetings!  It was a fun week, and I am sad to see it end!  Patrick is back to work already, and I'm up early to finish up this post before heading out to yoga/Pilates/Zumba, which I really need after those birthday and holiday dinners and four days in a row of no *serious* exercise.

Over the weekend, several new sets were released by The {Stamps} of Life.  There are circles4awards and banners2cut, which coordinate with this month's club set, can do all kinds of fun things with these interchangeable sets!  There's the adorable kirstin2love, another cutie in the kids2love series, and there's also mini-hexagon background, which is one of several sets I used on the card I'm sharing here.  This new set has dies to match! Makes it so easy!

I found this sketch on Pinterest (originally posted last July), and with TSOL's banners2cut, mini-hexagons and the larger hexagon background, I just couldn't resist interpreting it literally.  I really love these warm, rich colors and bold patterns on the pale, cool-colored background, so I'm pleased with the way this card turned out.  :)
