Fusuin Challenge

The Fusion challenge looks like this:
I love the green in the bike, and the sketch is deceptively simple. 
SU!  Succulent papers, Watercolor Words sentiments.  I struggle with stamping on patterned paper, but I think that the heat embossing is strong enough!!


CAS-ual Fridays has a color challenge this week:
 And the Mod Squad challenge is to make a square card. 
Spellbinders and Imperial Gold die cuts.  I like this color combination for a sympathy card.  Soft, but not morbid.  Come play along with us at Words 2 Craft By "Keep love in your heart" challenge.

W2CB #43 - Keep Love in Your Heart

Hi, everyone! Here is the June/July Words 2 Craft By Challenge. Come play along with us through July 5.  This month's words come to us from Oscar Wilde.

Keep love in your heart. 
I made 2 different versions of the same card - I had trouble deciding which one I liked best!

Which one do you like better?

Baby Boy

I pulled out some of my hoarded beloved Echo Park Bundle of Joy scraps for a cute baby boy card using Mojo Monday's last sketch - their 500th.  500 amazing sketches!  Thank you for all of the inspiration over the years.
I am also sharing this with the Shopping Our Stash Dude challenge (baby boys can be dudes, right?).

All I can say is, I tried.  I love the look of chalk, but it always seems messy.  I tried to clean things up.  Maybe it's meant to look distressed?
The squares are older Jillie Bean stamps, the sentiment SU!.  Love this 3.5 x 5 sized card!!  Sharing this with the Fusion Chalk Baking Challenge.  The cake counts as baking, right?!?!?

A few more days to play along with us at Words 2 Craft By for our Let's Party challenge!!

A Beary Merry Christmas!

My big brother loves bears.  I took the Cuttlebug Mania Frame It challenge and the jingle belles Oh Holey Night challenge to make him a Christmas card.  The front:

The bear is a cute button with the shank cut off and set inside the window.  The plaid paper is from the DCWV Project Stack and distressed with Crumb Cake ink.
