time to bloom

happy sunday to you and thanks for taking time out to visit the charmed life blog.

this is typically our family day after attending church.

today, our middle grandson, aidin, has his last football game.

it's a big rivalry game and they call it the autumn bowl. he is only 10 but the games are still fun.

we love going to all the boys sporting events.

His older brother austin (12) went hunting with his dad for the first time on saturday. I just thought it would a good time of bonding between my son and grandson.

but, early saturday afternoon, austin sent me a text message and photo with the deer he bagged. he was so excited and so was I.

In case you can't tell, I am a proud grandma. those 3 little boys are a real blessing in my life.

so onto my card for today. I am posting the 4th card I made for the verve challenge.
The winners were announced friday night and I wasnt one of them.
But, there is always next month. plus, i had fun putting the cards together.

It gets your creative juices flowing (lol).

for this card, i inked up a brand new set from stampin-up-bella's bloom.
I paired it with basic grey indian summer designer paper.
it matches so well with the new in-colors.
i used rich razzleberry cardstock & ribbon on this card.

my shape is cut with spellbinders die-labels 2.
I added a ribbon tab in the corner along with a heart button and that is my card.
