Fusion - Truck Bouquet





I live in a rural area of upstate New York so I see plenty of pick up trucks every day.....but I have never seen one with a beautiful cascade of flowers spilling out of the window!  I used both the inspiration photo and the sketch for my Fusion card this week.  I tinted some embossing paste to provide a backdrop to my simple flowers done in pink and red.

My son and his girlfriend just returned from visiting her family in the Philippines.  She is from a very small village way up north.....also a very rural area but oh so different from our countryside.  Some nearby islands are so remote that a season of Survivor was filmed on one of them!  I love this picture of their lunch on one of those islands.  It is rice, pork chunks and mini lobsters arranged on fan leaves with bananas for dessert.  But note the drink - Coca Cola~!  





Pick the sketch or use the picture - or fuse them together!

Beautiful card, and I need that Lunch....LOL

Where in Upstate NY do you live, I am from the LeRoy, East Bethany and Wyoming areas. I do miss the changing of the seasons and the green and the fall leaves. I am now in Casselberry Florida.

Keep up your posts, love your cards
