Fusion #7 and Happy Birthday

Happy Monday, everyone!  Time to start a new week.

First up is my card for the Fusion challenge.

This time I actually fused.  An idea came to me right away but it took a while to tweek it.

I took brick and script patterned paper, stapled on a cowl of hemp, and heat embossed a sentiment from SSS, all on a card base of soft stone.  This is really my style of cardmaking although I am being pulled to do more stamping, something I said I would not do.  There are just too many gorgeous stamped cards (and enablers) out there to not stamp.  And once you start, there's no stopping.  *_*

I have to say Happy Birthday to my great grandson, Noah, who turns one today.  Here he is at his birthday party which we couldn't attend since he lives 6 hours away. Thank goodness for technology.  My daughter sent a video of him eating cake.   Isn't he just the cutest with that crop of red hair?  (I'm not prejudiced or anything lol)

I just went looking for the card I made him and I guess I forgot to take a picture of it.  Believe me it was cute with red, blue and yellow balloons.

I hope you all have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by.
