Craft Retreat/Fusion Card Challenge

Some of you may know, I was lucky enough to be included in a Craft Retreat with an amazingly talented group of crafters - Joy Taylor, Iwona Palamountain, Cecilia Hsieh, Lyndal Higgins, Michelle Lupton, Teresa Xanthos, Debbie Pamment, Angelique Kelly, Jenny Dix and Suzanne Kohler!!!!!

We went to the most beautiful place - Bright Vic and the house was just so perfect for a group of crafty ladies! I was a bit worried I wouldn't be able to create, being surrounded by so much talent, but once we got the stamps,paper,inks and dies out, it was easy!

You should have seen how many stamps and dies we had the opportunity to play with (mostly Joy's) - it was like dying and going to Crafty Heaven!!!

This is the 1st card I made, which amazingly didn't involve any stamping! It is based on the sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge.

The paper is from Kaisercraft. I can't remember which die I used for the sentiment,
but I used a L'il Inkers die for the oval (I seriously need to buy these).
The wooden bird was a gift from Cecilia.


  1. Gorgeous Jenny! Thanks for the mention, the bird is from Studio Calico!

  2. Sounds like a crafting heaven for sure! This is lovely with bright happy images. Beautiful Spring colors!

  3. I'm soo jealous! I love the grungy type DP, and the little bird is so cute!

  4. Another gorgeous card and lucky you going on a retreat with such talented ladies - I am green with envy:) hugs xx
