>>> Fusion #5: loving THIS lately >>>



Happy Friday!!!!

We're up to Fusion #5:


PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just Jackie's sketch challenge.
2. Play with just Lesley's 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.

 I'm on Lesley's team:


Here's how I was inspired:


I totally forgot about my Dear Lizzy 5th & Frolic collection...love that journal card!

I used my Memory Box hey die cut, it's so delicate...the font reminds me of the birdcage.

I wanted to add the aqua panel that I cut down to the same size as the journal card....it has the prettiest sparkly sheen that is really difficult to capture on film.

Life

It's almost summer vacation for the kids, they have tons of tests and studying but they  are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Darin has started a project that has been on his 'bucket list'...he's building an airplane...no not a model airplane a for real airplane...crazy, right?  I'm so happy for him...I know that when he's building it, he knows exactly how I feel crafting...sheer joy.

My crafting life is incredibly chaotic, but in a good way.  I'm super busy but I look at everything as a fabulous opportunity to connect with other crafters and grow.  I'm so thoroughly inspired by others...I cannot imagine NOT being a part of this wonderful paper crafting community.

Make sure you pop over to the Fusion blog so you can find out who our spectacular guest designers are!!!!!

  3. This card is really inspire, Amy, love the colors and that aqua card. An airplane would definitely be an adventure. I built a new fence panel to decorate last weekend, does that count? I think that is less adventure and more like exercise, but decorating it with my husband's bird houses will be fun! We ran out of old wood, so I used new! Have a wonderful Friday!

  6. HEY, so loving your card!! Woodgrain + wood veneer is always a hit. Love how you cut the "hey" in the same color as your biggest flower, really ties it all in well.

    Impressed that your hubby is building a plane, do they come in a kit or something? Hey, you could make a really funky one out of paper! A good bonding opportunity there : )

  7. I am loving this card! Fabulous fonts, and the stars couldn't be more perfect!
    A for real airplane? That is awesome, and I love that you both support each other's passions. My kids are at the end-of-year burnout stage, I think :)

    I love your card, Amy - such a neat design! The colors, flowers and special touches all look so pretty!

  13. So pretty, Amy! Love those pretty colors against the white woodgrain! Kinda giggled when I saw this...I have some things laying out on a card base with that same pretty journaling card with a die cut word also. Mine's 'you' instead of 'hey'. It's something I've set aside, though...something's not quite right about it yet. Love this!
