Did you have fun the last challenge?
I sure did!


I used the NEW release Paper Smooches Easter Dies that have the Bows! 
What fun! 

I wonder what you will create!



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.

Here are some fabulous cards by our design team showing you how it works!

Feel Better Soon - Card Concept, Color Throwdown, Inkspiration

Well I finally got some real crafting time in.
last week was crazy as I had Jury duty half of the week, 
half days and then went to work late....
The week before was great, but I really don't craft 
at all when I am away
on vacation...
so now I am struggling to get caught up
in all aspects the regular grind.

Soon I should be at full speed....I hope.

A few challenges that inspired me this week.























Love the Inkspiratonal Inspiration Photo!!!!!
