challenge cards

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It is so frigid here in Pittsburgh-it's only 13 right now.
But, the good news is our Steelers beat Miami today so our playoff hopes are alive for a bit.

We also had a great service at church today. The worship team was exceptional.
Our pastor did something a little different with his message.
He had the 2 associates with him and asked them several different questions to allow us to hear their opinion. The questions were great as well as their answers.

I actually have 2 cards to post today. I made them for 2 different challenges on splitcoaststampers.

My 1st one is Thursdays ways to use it challenge.
We were to find ways to use TIME as part of the theme for our project today.
I chose to make a masculine birthday card for my brother who celebrates Jan 15.

So this challenge was timed perfectly for me (lol).

I used the staampin-up calendar kit and an epoxy sticker pocket watch from k & co.
Stampin-up's soft suede paper coordinates with this kit. I also used the autumn traditions designer paper. I was pleased with how it turned out. I think my brother will like it as well

For my sentiment, I used part of a stamp-from bella's bloom- and a rub-on to get what I wanted to say on the card.
card recipe:
stamps: bella's bloom
paper: su soft suede, ruby red, autumn traditions dsp
ink: printworks black
accessories: su calendar kit, rub-ons & ribbon, k&co epoxy stickers,


  1. Great job with this birthday card and "time' theme.

  2. A great guy card and a perfect alternative use for the calendar kit!
