Thank You...Fusion #1, The Pink Elephant 232

Hi,

Already Thursday evening and I'm here with a couple of *cas* posts before I forget my card + challenge combinations.  My resolution to photograph and post, tout de suite once a card is made is already a fail. Oh well, perhaps that's okay, as the longer they sit, the more time I have to decide whether they should be viewed publicly, which leads me to the little number I'm sharing here.

Fusion is back - hurrah - and with quite the challenging challenge to mark its return.


Pretty colours, a sketch with so many possibilities. Isn't that bedroom dreamy? I'd love to tuck into that every night.  As much the bedroom appeals to me, no such lovely coral paper exists in my stash to replicate it in a card, so I opted for the sketch only.  This card - and its non-challenge companion - were built on the weekend, and I've been *yes, post - no, don't post* dithering all week long.  Finally, I made the decision to jump: after all, Fusion #1 only happens once and I so wanted to give my new circle tab stamps and dies from MCT a trial run.  The charming gals at The Pink Elephant #232 have a Thank You focus this week,


so I'm entering there as well.


Here's the companion that I made just because...


Hmmm...after seeing them once again, in a 'post' format, they're kind of growing on me....

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments are so appreciated!

  1. You nailed the DP combination again, Carol ... these are both wonderful! I'm with you on the post-it-when-it's-made thing ... I tried it the other way and ending up a confused mess trying remember what went where and whether I'd commented on the other challenge entries! Now I'm a bit less confused ... but just a bit! Hugs, Anita :)

  6. How on earth did either of these EVER make it on the 'don't post list'?!!! I'm madly in love with both of these! That circle tab die is to "die" for (LOVE how you used them!) and so is the little pinked edge banner die! Patterned paper - yup, nailed it again! And those little hearts just make my own heart melt (you know I love my hearts!!!). 100%, absolutely, perfectly awesome, Carol!!
