SPECIAL News!


That's right!  I have some SPECIAL news to share with you!  Lesley asked me to join the Fusion Design Team...anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE to mix challenges, so the Fusion Challenge is right up my alley!    


Hope you'll join us this week for Fusion #3 to create a project using this fabulous sketch and inspiration photo!


Make sure to stop by the Fusion Designers' blogs for more inspiration!



I must admit that I was so excited about this news that I stopped by my local craft store hoping it would have the perfect patterned paper for me to use on this challenge...and luckily I found this fabulous My Mind's Eye paper called Lost & Found 2: Blush....gorgeous...a little shabby chic with amazing patterns!


What better way to show of these fabulous new papers that to flash a little VERVE and play along with the April Diva Dare: Butterflies & Blooms!  I used the Surely Goodness stamps and dies with a sentiment from Flutter By.  LOVE me some Verve:)


The challenge over at Our Creative Corner this week asks for Fashion & Style...so I had to play along with it as well!


The paper does the talking on this card!  After adding some stamped layers with die cuts, scalloped fabric, pearls, a button, some twine, a corner accent, and a pretty bow...I think it's done:)


Thanks for stopping by the stage!

This is a beautiful, beautiful card Stacey. Congrats on joining the Fusion DT - a well-deserved honour!

Oh, so happy for you, Stacey! Congratulations! They need more layer girls over there ;). I hate when challenges go completely CAS... not that they're beautiful in their own right, but it's hard to find inspiration there, when you're not a CAS designer.

Your card is beautiful! LOVE that banner and your yummy bow!
