my raspberry chickadee

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Its been quite a frigid, snowy day here in the 'burgh. Only 17 degrees right now as I am getting this post ready.

We are having a video series at church for 9 weeks on Monday nights. It was so cold in the church that I had trouble concentrating on the video. No one else seemed to mind including my husband. So maybe it was just me.

The series we are having is about receiving God the Father's love. We are in week #4 right now, and I think its been a great series. I may have to watch tonight's video again. There was so much to take in but I was cold.

Oh well, onto the card for today. I made this one for the featured stamper challenge on splitcoaststampers.
The idea is to look through the stampers gallery find a card and then remake it. You are to change several things on the card.

I chose her holly chickadee card. Her card was done for Christmas.
I wanted a spring looking card since we are in the heart of winter now.

I just bought this new stamp set. I really like the bird image in it so I thought I would ink it up.
I kept her layout but used different colors, image and ribbon.
I decided on razzleberry lemonade designer paper from stampin-up and I paired it with crushed curry and melon mambo card stock and ribbon. These colors are definitely bright and spring like.
I stamped my image in raspberry ink.
I liked how the card turned out. I may use it as a birthday card.

Well, my friends it's a wrap in charmed life land for today. Stay warm!!
