Pretty good day for a Monday

It has been a pretty darn good Monday. Hooked up with my friend Jen this morning, after picking up coffees for us, then we headed about a half hour south to Archivers. Today they had an 'in store only' 33% off sale on washi and embellishments. I spent a few dollars because I just couldn't help it. You'll see one of the embellies on my card a little further on in this post.

I was blessed with an Honorable Mention from CASology this morning. I liked my card, but there were so many who were also worthy. Thanks to the DT over there! I'm honored and delighted. Also big congrats to the other winners over there. Can't wait to see what the cue card says tomorrow!


With this card, I'm going to play along with the new Fusion challenge. I combined both sides of the challenge:


I've got this thing for gray...and chartreuse, so this was the bomb for me. Love circles. Love chevrons. Love this sketch. My green is a smidgy bit lighter than in the pillow photo, but I think it works. 


I used scraps--all scraps, except for the Bazzill white card base. (can I get a yippee!!!) The stamp is from HA, and the ink is Memento London Fog. The little embellie is from Fancy Pants. I used my MFT chevron die, and my 1" paper punch. I will admit, that it looks way cooler in real life. Happy dances everyone.

Love this graphic card - Really fun and a great take on the Fusion challenge! Is that the Archivers at Greenway Station (I think that's what it's called - in Madison? I've been there!)

Charming card, Bev! And you have a chevron die? Oh, I am green (er, chartreuse) with envy!! Fantastic 'fusion'!! I'm off to 'think about' thinking about what to make for this challenge. Chevrons, polka-dots, lines - oh my, the possibilities! Again - eye-catching, happy dance making card!

Your card caught my eye on the Fusion site so I had to take a closer look. You did a great job. I struggled with this one. With all the mentioning of your honorable mention (huh?) I had to check it out, too. You are on a roll, girl. I'm now a new follower.
