Hi folks! It’s been a busy summer — my best gal pal came up to visit and help me clean out my garage – in 106 degree heat!!! Now that’s a friend!!! It was perfect timing too, because as we were hauling stuff out into the driveway, we spotted a couple of roaches! Yuck! Since I haven’t seen any in the house YET, I am hoping the cleaning of the garage and spraying it for bugs, does the trick. I believe in “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” especially with pest control! I do use pet-friendly, environment friendly products as much as possible.
So, today was a day of rest and fun. We decided to do the FUSION card challenge as they have such an inspiring theme — seashells! (wish I were at seaside right now!!!) Here is the hypothesis for this challenge –
Click on the image above to get the specifics for the challenge – there is still some time to join in! I decided to go with the FUSION option to create a card for my new nephew-in-law’s birthday! (I’ve got to get this in the mail, like yesterday!) 🙂
Here is the card –
It’s always a challenge to take a GOOD picture of a reflective card! I used aluminum foil tape on cardstock and a Cuttlebug A2 Shell Collage embossing folder – I embossed the image on two separate, foiled covered sheets. I cut the focal image from one sheet and used alcohol inks to color the shell. Using Viva Decor Inka Gold, I randomly rub places on the background and around the edge of the focal image. The sentiment is from a Close to My Hearts birthday set and was heat embossed — love that it is a clear sentiment as I was able to curve the sentiment on the shell. Using the alcohol ink, I colored a silver gauze ribbon in purple, to match.
Hope everyone is staying cool and safe! Hugs!
