Fusion - Hot Stuff in the Winter

It's a PARTYYYYYYYY! One of my favorite challenges on the web, Fusion, is turning the big 3! 



When I first started blogging a little over 2 years ago, Fusion was one of the first challenges I found. Since I'm a girl who likes options, I love the fact that there is both an inspiration image AND a sketch to choose from. Or you can get all funky with their challenges and use both! 



That's why I was so excited when I was asked to join the other super-amazing-awesome-incredible-talented designers this year. I'm still feeling the pinch-me moment! 


 
It is -17 degrees here. Air temp. With the windchill it is in the -30s. 
So when I saw the current inspiration image, I decided to take a chilly card and turn it into something oh-so-warm.


I used the Stunning Snowflakes set by Uniko, along with some blue & purple colorburst powders to create my background, then used my new STAMPlorations A Cuppa Love stamp set to add in my warmth. :) 

But I'm not gonna hog the spotlight here. Let me introduce you to a woman who needs no introduction, especially when it comes to hot beverages - Ms. Amy Tsurata

In honor of our pahr-tay for Fusion's 3rd birthday, we all got to invite one guest. Now the prospect of choosing just one of my hundreds of bloggy friends left my nails in a permanently bitten state. However - as soon as I saw that inspiration image... there's no way I could have invited anyone BUT the coffee queen herself, Amy T. 

And check out her glorious cards! 



Amy used the sketch & inspiration image, because she's genius like that. And she even used my Literary Caffeinations set and the STAMPlorations After Coffee set. 

Would all of my bloggy friends go give Amy a little love today on her blog post

Now go make sure you check out the Fusion Pahr-tay and especially make sure you play along!

  9. Your bubbly enthusiasm in being part of the Fusion team is contagious! We're so fortunate, aren't we! Your 'in love' coffee cups card is totally hot! Love it! I can relate to the freezing temperatures. We've been sitting between -25-30C for the past week...and more to come! Long johns on all the time! Yes, choosing a GD was a challenge, indeed, but what a good one to have in that we have so many wonderful friends in this community! Amy: rockstar! Fabulous choice! Have an awesome cruise!
    Hugs~c
