Foxy Thanks...FUSION~Scrambled Letters


Yesterday, my nephew (who comes over to my mom's while my niece goes to her ballet lessons) and I prepared a "dinner party" for my sister-in-law, niece and mom (that, after a whole LOT of errand running with my mom). We went ALLL out: chicken noodle soup, grilled cheese sandwiches, party hats, fancy napkins AND we dined by candlelight! He's 4...seriously, too much fun!  I just so cherish him and my niece!  On today's agenda: time with mom, off to piano lessons with my niece, back to mom's, then off to their skating lessons... Too. Much. Fun!

Anyway...a warm, hearty welcome to FUSION~Scrambled Letters, where we invite you to draw inspiration from the photo, the sketch or a combination of both...

My card is a fusion:  a TH stencil, with PTI's Stylized Autumn and an Altenew Labels sentiment. My little fox needs much more cute!

For impressive inspiration, please visit my teammates: 

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.

Your turn!
What sparks your creativity? Sketch? Photo? Both?

Looking forward to seeing how this FUSION challenge will inspire you!

So glad you dropped by today; your visit brings me joy!

Oh, that dinner party sounds delightful! I bet it tasted extra delicious by candlelight!
You little fox surrounded by flowers, greenery, and with the stenciled background is adorable!

Your stenciled background is the perfect way to highlight the sweet little fox. Love the non-traditional color you chose for the little critter and love the bold pops of royal blue!

Geri said...

Oooops! Forgot to say that it sounds like you are having an absolute blast hanging out with the wee ones and your mom! Lucky girl :)

I just love how you interpreted that sketch. It's always so fun to see how people think completely differently from me and come up with some so stinkin' adorable!

Alanna said...

You went 'all out', huh? I LOVE it! You are such a fun auntie, Carol...and, they are so lucky to have you in their life!
This is such a charming take on the sketch and inspiration photo! This sweet little fox is my fave of Kay's creations, and I love how you perched him up there on the banner...such a cute card!

What a funtastic dinner party. I so enjoy hearing about your niece and nephew and how present and engaged you are with them. It's a beautiful thing! Your little fox scene against the letters looks terrific. A pretty and soft color palette! Wonderful work all around! :) Thanks the the smile.

I'm so glad you're having some fun Auntie time, Carol. Speaking of fun, so is your card with that darling little fox resting in the flowers and your stenciled background. I seriously just bought that stencil and will be using it for my card.
