Fusion #3 ~ Let's Party!

Hey there whoever found spring and returned it to Ohio...thanks a bunch!! It's back to the low 60's and sunny...I'm a happy girl! Max and I had a splendid walk this morning. The birds were in a very chipper mood, they sang to us the whole time! Took a moment while I had a load of laundry in to make a card using the latest Fusion sketch.



I saw the flourish in the sketch and thought this little lizard's tail would work perfectly there! He's one of those stamps I bought at convention a couple of years ago and I think this is the second time he's seen ink. I'm not really sure if I like him or not, must be the whole lizard thing! But it was cheap ($1.99!) and I thought it would be good for masculine cards. Now this paper, on the other hand, I like a lot! It has the stripes on one side and those sweet polka dots on the other! I die cut two MFT leaves, scored the center of one and popped it up. The lizard is popped up too and I put an extra bit of curl in his tail for fun. Oh and by the way he's by Inkadinkado and came with this funky sentiment.

Well I guess that about does it for me. Off to fold towels and hopefully get my haircut this afternoon! Have yourselves a delightful day and thanks for stopping by! ~Lisa

Oh my heck, look at how cute! That lizard is adorable, especially with the sentiment. And I love your DP leaves for him. Great job with this sketch - so unique!

I'm glad you're getting some Spring weather at last! We've had sunshine, but it's still very, very cold, which is tough for 3 children who are itching to play on the backyard playground! Enjoy the lovely weather, and maybe your haircut too...? ;-)

Colleen Dietrich said...

That lizard is a creative way to do the swirly thing on this sketch, Lisa! And I know you love your polka dots, so understand completely why you love this paper. :)
