Fusion: Happy Birthday!


Wow! Happy New Year to you and your families. Wishing you wonderful health and lots of wonderful memories for the new year.

One year ago, FUSION was reborn and we were excited to announce our new design team. We have had a couple of designers move on over the past year but the majority of the team is still here!

To celebrate this wonderful occasion, we are thrilled to share our challenge...which will last two weeks as usual. My card was inspired by this card that Cristina made along with the gorgeous inspiration photo above.





For this special celebration, we also invited a guest to the party. I was so pleased to invite my dear and amazingly talented cousin, Sandie, from London Days, to join the party. We're so blessed that despite living across the pond from one another, this amazing hobby has brought us very close to one another. Be sure to pop on over to her blog and check out her gorgeous card for this challenge.

Want to play along?  Be sure to follow the procedures below.

PROCEDURES:
1. Play with just the sketch challenge.
2. Play with just the inspiration photo challenge.
3. Or you can create FUSION by combining BOTH challenges into one card.
4. Use the challenge graphic and link back to Fusion in your post.
5. Please read the other considerations on the Our Rules Page before playing along.

WinnersWill be chosen by all of our teammates in two weeks! We each will choose one favourite! The winners will be announced at 4am (PST) in two weeks!! Please check the linky for the days left to play with us!
