Tropical Fish Wishes with Fusion

Hello Crafty Friends!

Today I am playing along with Fusion, and their wonderful Under the Sea theme, Tropical Fish! There’s still a little time to play along over on the Fusion Blog right here: https://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/04/fusion-tropical-fish.html

I was so inspired by the bright primary colors in this underwater scene! I used a few of my favorite marine life animals, like the coral, the octopus, and a few brightly colored fish to create an underwater scene of my own!

Thanks so much for dropping by today!

Cheery Eggs with Fusion

Hello Crafty Friends!

I am so glad you could join us today with the latest from Fusion Card Challenge, Cheery Eggs! I was so inspired by these bold, bright, colorful eggs, I just had to add them to this card! Sadly, I have been SO sick with the worst cold ever, that it took me almost a week to make this! I’d cut an egg, then rest for a while, cut an egg and make some tea, cut an egg and then just zone out with Netflix for a while. The REAL cheer for me is actually finishing this simple card in time to make the close! You can get all the details and link up your cheery eggs over at The Fusion Blog right here: https://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/04/fusion-cheery-eggs.html

Fusion Challenge: Christmas Eve Ride

Hello Everyone!

Today I am sharing a card that I have created for the latest challenge over on Fusion, Christmas Eve Ride! You can get all the details, see some great inspiration, and enter your card over on the Fusion blog right here: http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/12/fusion-christmas-eve-ride.html

I was inspired mostly from the inspiration photo, and fell in love with this unique cityscape design. There is just so much going on in the photo, with little houses, lots of windows, tiny trees,  snow, a big moon, and of course, Santa in the sleigh! I love the contest of a chaotic city, yet it so looks so peaceful and calm! So I created a tiny chaotic city scene, with an alcohol ink background, peacefully waiting for Santa! I just love the idea that Santa comes for just about everybody, from the crowded cities to the expansive countrysides, all over the world!

Thanks so much for joining us today!
