I need a water break!


Happy Saturday all!  I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far?!  I sure am.  I am so excited it is June!  I am looking forward to summer and sun (hopefully) and playing at the beach with my family!  And this begins the string of fun activities with my family (Mom, Dad, Brother, significant others, etc.) who don't live here.  I won't give you all the details but we've got visitors in June and July, a trip to see them in July and camping in August.  FUN!

Anyway, I wanted to share a fun but quick card I made with you today.  This card is for the Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge and the Fusion Card Challenge #9.  You can see where the colors came from, thanks PS!, and the sketch was from Jackie's version of the Fusion hypothesis.  I really like how this turned out with the bright and fun colors!  I used my new Maraschino Cherry Timeless Twine, which I love, and the Paper Smooches Wolfers & Tweeters set.  I needed a few music notes and I took those from the PS set Perpetual Bliss.  Wah-lah!

I made this card in about 8 minutes and 9 seconds.  I timed myself because I've been trying to build up speed for the 10 minute Craft Dash.  I know, LOL, some serious training going on here!  I think I need a water break! :) Phew!

I probably won't get another card done for the PS challenge as we have friends coming over tonight, but I do hope to do at least one more for the Fusion since the theme is so Seattle!  I mean, rain, could I not?!

Thanks for stopping, have a great weekend!
