365 Photo of the Day & Fusion Card


Today’s Photo


Whenever I see a chandelier or chandelier type item with crystals dangling I get a picture in my mind of my younger brother (he passed away some time ago)  When he was just a little feller he would pull one of those little red wagons around the streets of the small town we lived in.  Everyone knew him, and generally he was headed from our house up to our Grandma’s house with his wagon, and rarely did he return home with it empty.  Most likely he had a ball of dough or some small trinket from Grandma. 

While he walked along he sort of swayed to his own music, which he hummed out loud.  He was way ahead of the times, didn’t need an ipod, just sang himself whatever he knew!  One song he liked to sing and hum to was Charlie Pride’s “The Crystal Chandelier”

Fusion (Bowties and Other Things)

Today’s challenge gave us several choices to go with -

This week you are welcome to be inspired by:

-The Sketch

-The Bowties

-The Colours

-The Patterns in the Bow Ties

-The Woodgrain Bakcground

-A group of other items (not just bowties)

-And so on!


I chose the bowtie as I have had some sitting here longing to be used for some time now. Here’s my card:




A simple sentiment by Paper Smooches, the sweet bow and lace picked up from a Dollar Store, and embossing thanks to a Darice folder.


  1. Absolutely gorgeous card, Barbara! Thanks for joining us at Fusion. I love your photo, too! And a beautiful story of your brother. I have a child who sways to her own music. She's 7 and she has been singing non-stop since she was a baby - she sings her own story, like "I'm going to brush my teeth, and they're going to shine...", so it's a never-ending song, lol!

  2. Ohhhh, love your double bow and the pretty embossed background, Barbara. Thanks for playing along at the FUSION card challenge and hope to see you again :-). Hugs
