I think I am just under the wire, but I had to play along with this week’s fun Fusion Challenge, Pastel Pencils! When I first saw the inspiration photo, I started working on it, but every time I sat down to work, I was distracted with other tasks. But something about these colorful pencils in a cup really spoke to me. You can get all the details and play along (if you hurry), over at The Fusion Challenge blog right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2017/08/fusion-pastel-pencils.html
This month, my hubbie and I received some news that came as a bit of a shock. After 19 years with his company, he and his entire department were eliminated, downsized, let go. It’s devastating to think that after picking up everything and moving down South here to Alabama a few years ago, that we would be starting all over once again. Our plan is to relocate to a new location, and we have a few places in mind. I may be blogging a little less over the next few weeks, but we sure would appreciate you sending your prayers and thoughts and good luck charms our way! We are hoping and praying that this shut door will open a new window of opportunity for us very, very soon!
I made this card while thinking about my hubbie and I. We both are creative, artistic souls. He worked his way up as a talented graphic designer to the production supervisor, so I guess a little bit of ink and bling is a part of us, running through our veins like life blood. Despite this setback, we will keep going, living our lives in color. We appreciate all the love and support you have given to us both and to Crimson Owl Creations.
Here is the list of dies that I have used:
Paper Smooches: Mason Jars
Papertrey Ink: Pencil me In
Sugar Pea Designs: Sugar Cut Heartbeat
Thanks so much for joining us today!
Live your life in color!
