Fusion: Give Thanks



Click HERE for Day Four of the Neat & Tangled October Release Week!


The new Fusion starts today!

Check out the awesome inspiration/sketch:


My card design is a combo of both, but I simplified the sketch:

paper collection:  carta bella/a perfect autumn  trim:  wool yarn

This card is an epic fail on the postal friendly department!

I just love that chunky wool yarn and knew that I wanted to incorporate it into my design.


Carta Bella paper is so very luxurious...you can see the texture on the bingo card.  I have the sentiment chippie on double foam squares....Take That US Postal Service!
(my last visit to the local postal office ended up with most of my 'bumpy' cards costing $2.32...they were seriously barely bumpy...so why not make the $2.32 worth it, eh?)

My card size was really to accommodate the bingo card/sketch.  It has been trimmed down to 4.5 inches tall.

Make sure you check out my teamies!
