Second Course - Fusion {Bowties and Other Things!}

I have not used that gorgeous Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Window I adore in some time... perfect for the arrangement in the Fusion Challenge sketch this week. 
 Combine that with M.E. itsy bitsy bowties [oh, oh - I may now be writing a new children's song in my head]
and here is your second course:

Window cut from a panel of Neenah, lined with a slip of vellum, backed with Audrey Blue, and who needs blinds when one can have bowties?  A darling sentiment [love that font] from Clearly Besotted's Sketched Blooms. Note: here is an idea of just how bitsy those bowties are: the blue stripe is the tear-away from a 6x6 pad of paper!

A new little photo from the "View from My Room" file:
"This town ain't big enough for the both of us..."

Have a fabulous day... TGIF!

Oh this is beautiful Michele! I love those itty bitty bows!!! Isn't everything cuter tiny?!! Love the papers you used, or should I say the paper strips? lol Love the newest picture from your view. I love to watch chipmunks and squirrels-they are just the cutest. Your little squirrels look like they are having a fabulous snow day! lol Hugs, Brenda

Adorable teensy bow ties and arranged against a most beautiful window colour! Love this Michele!
Fun times with the squirnels...that's what our family lovingly calls them :)
Grey, damp and chilly here. Looks like a snow sky.

Great CAS design, gotta pin it!

This is just as CUTE as can be Michele!! I think those chubby little squirrels have themselves a hefty winter stash of nuts!!

Adorable...both the card and the tree rats!

Love these sweet bow ties. What a great way to use them. I am getting ideas for my tiny bow dies too. And, love those squirrels and all that lovely white snow.

Hazel Hodgkins said...

Wowsers! That is a seriously mini set of bowties! Love this card, and share your love of the sentiment style also! Brilliant photo of the squirrels too, by the way. Swap a possum for a squirrel??

Bobby said...

Another stunner, Michele. I don't think my fingers could even work those tiny bow ties. But since they're mini, should this be sent to CASology?

I. LOVE. THIS. CARD! There, I've 'shouted' out my praise! Delightful, classy, fantastic! Your view from your room shows absolutely stunning scenery, and the squirrels...such fun. Looks like they don't mind the snow at all!

Oh Michele, your card is just simply perfect! I love your neat and patterned paper bows! The pictures just as cute!

Kelly Griglione said...

Oh I missed this one! Yep, love it too. And I'm still thinking about something from your last post ... how on Earth can you be a grandma?! You look so young!!

Shona Chambers said...

White, crisp, modern....oh my!!

Julia Aston said...

Love your tiny bows framed within the window panes! thanks for joining us in the Fusion Challenge! (love those red tinged squirrels - ours are just gray or black....)

Jen W. said...

Brilliant use of the window die and those teenie ties are adorable! And those squirrels??? I love them!! Luis' relative in Canada think I'm nuts because I'm obsessed with the squirrels and raccoons and chipmunks. We don't have any here. I'll trade you some squirrels for a few giant centipedes….
