Fusion - Blue Skies


I will admit that when I saw the inspiration photo for this week's Fusion Card Challenge, I experienced a touch of fear. Nautical themes are so tricky for me! I thought, "Oh well, I'll just use the sketch this week..." and THEN, something happened! All of a sudden, while working on the sketch, the inspiration photo started to influence my card! I am so thrilled with how this card turned out, despite it's wobbly start in my imagination. I've proven again that when mojo is scarce, just sit down and start making a card. The mojo will show up eventually. ;-)
I used MFT Blue Skies stamps, Memory Box Puffy Clouds dies, PTI Spiral Notebook die, Hero Arts Envelope Pattern background stamp, and SU! Watercolour Wonder paper. That's a hotch potch of companies, isn't it?
For those of you wondering how my daughter went on school camp - when I collected her last Friday afternoon I asked how camp went and, for the first time ever when returning from camp, she said, "Great!" with a great big smile on her face! Yay! I was so happy. She was exhausted, but she had fun.

Thanks for coming to visit!
