Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
Spring has finally come to Pittsburgh. We have such a beautiful week-end with lots of sunshine and Monday was warm, just a perfect spring day.
The daffodils, crocus and hyacinths are blooming. The tulips that the deer didn't eat have not bloomed as yet. But, my husband has been very consistent to use the deer-off spray to keep them away.
This morning was my day at pre-school. The kids were very high energy and we decided to take them outside to the play area for about 15 minutes. They worked off some energy before the parents came back to pick them up. I can't believe we only have a month of school left. Where did the year go???
Today we made grape juice with the kids. They learned the letter "j" so this activity tied right into their learning. They really enjoyed putting the grapes in the juicer and watching the grape juice come out. Not to mention that they loved the sweetness of the juice. And, no added white sugar.
I am going to do a fun activity with them for the remaining Tuesdays of the school year. Next week I plan on ice cream. I own a Vita-Mix and you can make some fabulous ice cream really quick in that machine.
Now onto my card for today. this is another one that I made for Color Challenge #525 bingo game on Splitcoaststampers. Since the challenge is over, I can now say that we did have a hidden prize for this fun game.
You had to use the diagonal row of colors consisting of cherry cobbler, bermuda bay, mossy meadow and soft sky. The prize was a Splitcoaststampers mug. We only had 1 stamper select that color combo. So we didn't have to do a drawing for the winner.
We had 2 prizes to award and the other went back to the prize bag. Not going to say what the other prize was because we will run the game again in about 6 weeks.
As an incentive to the other stampers, I used that color combo to make this card. The "Happy" word is the PaperTrey Ink "phrase play #5 die. My birthday word is from the Stampin-Up set "see ya later". I stamped in cherry cobbler ink.
Added some mossy meadow thick bakers twine and candy dots in cherry cobbler and soft sky to complete this card.
Well, that's it for me for today. Time to get ready for my photography class for tonight. So until next time.......God bless.
