these boots: Fusion Challenge!

these boots: Fusion Challenge!
I love these little Polka Dot Boots.
Little True Story. 
So when I met my husband, we fell for each other when it came time to register for dishes,
I looked around and my kitchen was totally white. 
I decided that now I found my WONDERFUL someone,
I needed to "live a little"
Change is sometimes good!
And so ..
we registered for Red with White Polka Dot Dishes!
This week's (Fabulouso) Fusion Challenge,
I picked the

All you need is LOVE love LOVE: Runway Inspired Challenge

Runway Inspired Challenge!
This one made me sit back and think...
 for quite a few days.
I mulled it over.  I scanned through papers.  I tossed ideas around.
I was almost scared off!!!
So this was difficult in the thinking,
 that it took quite a long time,
but once I decided what I was going to do, 
it came together.

Beavers are furry, right?

I had been meaning to "test" the Tim Holz Dies that I got a great deal on,
would they work in my big shot?
Yes, they did, I had to place another embossing folder atop them,
 and use only the spacer pages, not the base. 
It worked!
Happy Memorial Day!

You Make My Heart Sing Bouquet: Fusion Challenge!
This week's challenge inspired me
 to try for a watercolor look.
I love the mamelephant stamp line, and the set Smitten is a new little favorite.
I used it for the Play Date Café challenge, then I think, what else ??
Can I use it again, why YES, you can.
I used Marvy Le Plume Pens and copics for the effect
 Hope your Memorial Day weekend is SUPER!

Another excuse to use mamelephant stamps and Amy Tangerine Fabric Stickers.
Ultra Modern Card, don't you think so?
TIP of the DAY: Copics are like paint really.
 I covered a periwinkle anchor from the KandC Brad set, and Voila,
a Navy Anchor Brad! 
So use Copics in ways you normally wouldn't think to do,
and you may just be surprised at the results!

I do apologize for not being so chatty, I work full time, have an active 11 year old
 (wow not used to typing 11, he just had his birthday Monday),
and he has ADHD, and a slight learning disability when it comes to memory and recall for writing. 
Long story short, it takes him roughly 5 times longer to complete his homework and with my help to write sentences recalled from reading a few pages.
So I work with him as much as I can.
I also have a husband that works the longest hours on the planet
(the video game industry)
that when he is home, I try to drop everything and spend time with him.
Oh, and my boy has Karate twice a week and all afternoon Saturdays.
I love it, don't get me wrong, but when I get a few hours to get a few cards in, I can't stop.
I also have my mom in a mother in law basement apartment
 in our house that I take care of as well.
Anyways, time is limited,
but your comments mean the world to me, so I will try to add more "life" into my posts.
