Back from an awesome visit at my mom's, couple with a whole lot of 'getting into shenanigans' with my niece and nephew. Whether I was playing with them at their place, or going for a night-time walk through Candy Cane Lane, or checking out the displays at Telus World of Science (Angry Birds was the feature exhibit), or ‘pretending’ to be flexible and bendable at Tree House, an indoor playground/jungle gym, or buying books at Indigo, or taking them to the water park at West Edmonton Mall (my husband and brother took them into the water….I’m so not a water fan and those slides…oh my stars!), the outcome was the same: Too Much FUN! Excited to see them in, hopefully, a couple of weeks!
Speaking of 'too much fun'...Welcome to FUSION~ 3rd Anniversary Challenge, where we've each invited a Guest to join us to celebrate this challenge! Each guest has inspired us and we know they will inspire you today!!! We hope you will join us!
My talented friend, from 'just down the road' in Manitoba, Leigh Penner (To the Full) is my guest designer. She is a gem - sweet, warm, supportive, encouraging - and oh, so creative! She's on a variety of teams (Reverse Confetti, CAS(E) this Sketch, Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge) and her passion for crafting is expressed loud and clear through her gorgeous cards. I'm thrilled that she accepted my invitation to join us!
*Squeal*...look what she's brought us! A cutie-patootie piggy (featuring the new RC release: Cured), with birthday wishes! Too adorable!
THANK YOU, Leigh, for joining the Anniversary challenge with me!
As for me: photo inspired! Coffee cups, red, wood-grain, a pop of blue...and here's how it all came together...
I 'need' to find more woodgrain paper! Any recommendations?
For outstanding inspiration, please visit my teammates AND their fabulous guest designers. Gorgeous designs...
For those of you new to FUSION challenges, and for those good friends returning: a quick outline/reminder of how things work:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
What sparks your creativity? Sketch? Photo? Both?
Looking forward to seeing how this FUSION challenge will inspire you!
Oh, and as added incentive: one of our guests has very generously offered up a prize to a randomly drawn gallery submission,
so be in to win
