I got up early this morning, while it was still "warm" out, and did the weekly grocery shopping before church. There is no way I'm taking DH out for something as trivial as that when it's supposed to be so cold. After church, I put a nice beef roast in the crock pot, and so I'm all set for a day of football (well, watching for Melissa) and crafting! Yippee! And hopefully, all day tomorrow too.
You've all heard, I'm sure, that there's a new Fusion challenge. When it first went up last year, I enjoyed playing whenever I could. Using a sketch or an inspirational photo, or both really appealed to me. I was sad to hear that they were shutting down. Then things changed, and they're back! So naturally, I had to play along. Very cool inspiration photo, and an interesting sketch, but no pings for me...dagnabbit!! Rather than do nothing, I examined the photo scrupulously and there it was, my first ping. Look at the duvet. White. Slender orange border. Right up my alley. Then things fell into place. Including some heat embossing (be proud Sharon and Ardyth), which isn't my favorite thing to do.
This is the fusion of both sides that I saw:
I used an SU orange marker on my white Neenah card base. The rest of the papers are from my scrapbox, and the dp is an MME scrap. I heat embossed some 'spirograph' like circles from Maya Road using Ranger ink and powder. The sentiment is from PTI, and three sequins that look darker in this photo than they do in real life. The circles are popped up, but you can't really tell in the photo. And I'm happy with this.
If you live in an area that's about to get slammed with this bitter cold weather, stay safe and warm. I'll be thinking of you all. Warm and happy dances everyone.
