In the Hearts They Touch

verve fusion teacher

It's Friday...yippee!  There's a new Fusion Card Challenge to get your weekend started off right!  For Hypothesis #17, Leslie chose a cool quadrant of flair-looking icons with a fabulous versatile sketch!  Each time I looked at the inspiration photo, I couldn't get past the pop of red and the classic book print backgrounds.

After I chose my Simple Stories Say Cheese paper pad with the eye-popping red and book printed papers, I went right to one of my all-time favorite Verve Stamps sets, Teachers Count and Verve's A Cut Above Apple Die Set

Anything Goes over at Word Art Wednesday is always a fun one to visit when you need an uplifting read!  Of course, if it's Back to School TOTALLY fits our new challenge over at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge, Little Red Wagon Really Reasonable Ribbon #79!  The CAS-ology Cue Card: Apple ties in perfectly, too, with all of the back to school inspiration!

There's a fun prize up for grabs at the Curtain Call, The Alley Way Stamps Learning Curve stamp set, to the LEAD...stop in and play along!

Hi Stacey, I looked at your recent cards and they all have the most beautiful twine bows! I love how you do that! What's your secret? Double loops?

Thanks for coming to my blog and leaving me such a nice comment!
