Fusion #5

Every week so far I've intended to play along with the Fusion challenge, and here it is, the first time. I've used simply the sketch - perfect for those teeny scraps I can never bear to throw away.

Supplies: papers from MME; Jennie Bowlin butterfly; Memento Gray Flannel ink; PTI sentiment; Corner Chomper
Really short & sweet - it is only 3:30 AM, and the cat decided to go climbing on Rob's dresser...she got caught in the alarm clock cord, fell, took the alarm clock with her, and then got stuck in the 'no man's land' between our dressers...which is full of boxes, a pillow, a guitar case, and even more cords. And naturally it was the deaf cat, so she couldn't hear me trying to guide her out of the mess. Actually, now that I think about it, maybe this is more effective than my usual alarm clock. It got me out of bed much faster!

Ugh. Coffee's ready now. Back after caffeination!

Awesome use of scraps on your the colors and the one rounded corner! Thanks for playing with us at Fusion:)

LOVE you card Jessi! Great way to use scraps and the butterfly is so lovely.

I'll be smiling about your cat all day long! Poor you though so early in the morning.

Another deaf cat owner. I think ours yells louder, just so she can hear herself. ;)
Such a sweet, delicate card -- perfect for Mother's Day!

I am with you girl! I save every last useable piece and that may not be a good thing because it's starting to look like hoarders in my craft room, but I always need small pieces for this or that.

Your card is gorgeous! I love the soft and soothing feel! I am a big fan of the one round corner too! :-) Love it!

Jenny said...

Haha! Now that's what I call a rude awakening:0) I would definitely need coffee after that alarm call !!!
Great challenge to use scraps for, sweet card :0)
