FUSION {A Farewell & a Hello!}

Thank you for joining us at FUSION. Before we get onto this week's challenge, we want to say a sad farewell to designer Geri Freeman. Geri has been a huge part of the FUSION team and she will be missed. Thank you for all of your hard work, Geri!!! 

We would like to announce that Jeanne Jachna is joining our team!!! Jeanne has played along with us a lot and we just love her amazing style! Welcome, Jeanne!!!! I asked Jeanne to share a bit about herself here...

Hi, I'm Jeanne Jachna. I'm a married, stay at home mom of two young adults, and one very large Akita. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago.  I like to read, garden and cook but I have been completely captivated by card making and paper crafts.  I love to mix and match different pattern papers and can’t resist bright colors. My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself.  I’m delighted to join the Fusion Design Team and share my colorful creations with you.

This challenge is all about flowers or maybe not! Have fun and be inspired...we cannot wait to see what you create!

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!

WinnersWill be chosen by all of our teammates in two weeks! We each will choose one favourite! The winners will be announced at 4am (PST) in two weeks!! 

You have until Tuesday, April 22nd to join us! The linky will close at Noon (PST).

  5. I added my link to the linkup, but it still isn't displaying. So I tried again, but it says that it is already in the linkup. I know it usually takes a couple of minutes to show, but it's been over 10 minutes. In case, it doesn't come up, here is my link

  6. Mine would have been the 8th card - after Shirley Bee
