Fusion - Poppy Thanks!

Click to link up to Darnell's Birthday Party before July 16.


This is my card for the current Fusion Challenge.


I decided to combine the sketch and the photo and came up with this graphic thank you card.  I used Simon Says Stamps flower dies to create my poppy and a Paper Smooches thanks die.

We visited Struan briefly this afternoon. He's done 19 flights so far and is really enjoying himself. Today he'll be learning how to recover from a spin. Well I certainly hope so! And in the next day or so he'll be doing his first solo flight.

Interesting fact - in a field near the gliding club, they breed/keep bulls for bull fighting (I have no idea where any bull fighting is done in this province, but now I know where they get the bulls!). The kids have been told that if they end up landing in a field with a bull (this is definitely not the desired outcome!), stay in the glider until someone comes to get you. We don't want angry bulls running after the air cadets!

Three cheers for Struan! Wow! What an incredible accomplishment for one so young! I bet he can hardly wait for his solo flight. I'm thinking that you can!

Awesome card - great bold design! Cool poppy!

Bull fighting in Canada? Had no idea! Great advice for Struan - I can't imagine that these aggressive bulls would take to kindly to anyone invading their territory!

Love your bright poppy Ardyth! great job using the Fusion Sketch - I can never get a design done that involves a triangle for some reason!
