Fusion - Back to School

What a week - I think Moriko  (my fur baby) is turning into a teenager - or terrible two or something.  Every time I let her out it seems like she's after something!!!  Earlier in the week she dug up a den of bunnies.  No worries.. they are all ok - I had to make her spit one of them out!  Yesterday she was chasing a big toad.   You could tell she had a taste of him too because she looked like she wanted to rinse her mouth out.  It didn't stop her from charging every time he moved. ... Yes... he is ok too!  LOL.  I can't vouch for the bees she keeps trying to catch.  I wonder.. .do they taste like honey?

Have you been missing one of your favorite challenges lately?  Well wait no more!  Fusion Card Challenge is back!  The kids are back in school and we're back from our hiatus! I hope you're rested up and ready to play!  Here's the inspiration.  Its Fusion so remember you can use the inspiration photo or the sketch to give you a kick start.  If you're feeling clever you can FUSE them together like I did.   
I dug into my stash for some of my favorite pattern paper from October Afternoon.   I love their nostalgic looking paper and themes.
 The stamp set is one of my favorites too from Lil Inker Designs called School Girl.
Need a little more inspiration?  Hop on over to the Fusion Card Challenge Blog or click on any of the DT member names below to see what they've got cooking!

Have a great day!

What a lovely card Jeanne. As always, you far exceed what's expected in a striking card. . .your attention to detail is a delight to follow. Am wondering though. . . how would you rate the Cheery Lyn doily die? Detailed doily dies have usually caused a problem for me. Not all the paper from the "holes" want to pop out. Maybe detailed doily dies just are not meant to work perfectly?
Awaiting your reply,

Once again, your card is rich with lovely layers, fabulous images and sweet details! A back to school card that is sheer delight! Speaking of delights: the exuberance of your fur baby! I'm glad all the critters were safe, but her bounding, bouncing and pouncing must make you laugh! Fur babies...I want one...or two...
