Fusion + MFT Thank You

I missed the first week of the Fusion Card Challenge, so put it to the top of the list when I knew I would have a little creative time today.

With this challenge, you have the option of using the sketch, the inspiration photo or both to create a Fusion - I used both on this card.

I had a small scrap of green chevron paper on my desk from a card I made last week and used it to cut an open circle border and left the remaining piece to anchor the design. The large dots look black in this photo, but are a dark grey and the sentiment is from MFT's Let's Toast stamp set.

This second card is for the My Favorite Things Weekly Stamp Club (MFTWSC119)  at Splitcoaststampers. You can check out the details of this sketch based challenge here on the MFT Forum.

I made the banner with Sentiment Strips dies and alphabet stamps from Let's Toast. Another Sentiment Strip is used to make the "birthday" banner.

Starbucks gift cards are popular with my daughter & her friends, so I love using this a la Mode Miss You a Latte to make her birthday cards.

My heart goes out to all those in Boston today - my daughter's seventh grade teacher ran the Boston Marathon numerous times, including the year she taught my daughter so it is a race we have paid attention to the last few years.



  1. Your two cards are both great. I especially like your fusion card. I've been mulling that challenge over, and haven't come up with anything yet, but I think you really nailed them both.

  2. Two great cards! I really love your Fusion card with all the different shapes and patterns. :-)

  3. I love both of your cards! Your Fusion card is wonderful...lovin' all of the greens! Thanks for playing with us at Fusion!
