hello friend.



Hello and Happy Sunday.

As my holiday wraps up I'm frantically crafting up a storm.  I tend to be more productive when I'm on a regular schedule.  Being off from work since 12/24 gave me too much time to craft so I wasn't nearly as productive.

Here's a card using my last couple of full sheets from the Persimmon 6x6:


You might not be able to tell by the photo, but the cream panel has been embossed.


I still super love this collection but my embellies and paper choices are pretty slim so when I saw the current Fusion Challenge, I knew that I had to sift through what I had left.



Did you see the new Design Team, wowza!

Wowza...love how you used that word, but think I might just have to steal it from you as I describe your card! Wowza! This is so creative, love the patterned paper folded up...the great cork piece with the sentiment...that you used what you had and made something totally unique! Love it all.

Love the peekaboo of showing of embossing! Like the underslip of a beautiful calico dress pulled to the side..GORGEOUS. I adore Persimon too, so glad you eeked all the lushness from it in your cards!

YAY!! So happy to see you at the Fusion Challenge, even if you're on the other side of the fence! LOVE that tiny heart on your cork. And I'm impressed that you've gone through an entire 6x6 pad. I don't think I've even used a quarter of a pad yet : ) Gorgeous card, Amy!
