Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It was a "warm" day here in the 'Burgh. I think the temp was up around 38. The snow and ice are slowly melting and that's a good thing.

The water that was coming in the house has stopped. Thank the Lord.

We had a great service at church today. A young couple (Jeannine & Aaron) announced they are pregnant. They were married in June of last year. They were both so excited. I will have to make them a card.

On another note-speaking of cards. I wanted to make mention of something that I overlooked in a previous post. On this post and this post, I didn't give credit to my friend Linda for the card inspiration. She is a great stamper as well as designer. She presented the ideas at our recent card club meeting. Thanks Linda!!

So onto my card for today. I made this one for the Saturday inspiration challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week we visited an Australian site "Lark".
They stocks lovely jewelry, prints, stationery, zines, books, and cute home wares from the owners’ favorite designers.
I chose this cute hippo purse as my card inspiration. I used the colors of the purse in my card. My designer paper seemed like a great match for the fabric they used on the purse.
I colored my hippo image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.
The layout I used was from Karen Giron. She has a sketch challenge every Sunday. The simplicity of this one worked well for my card.
Well, it looks like a wrap from charmed life land for today. I am watching the winter Olympics and really enjoying all the events. How about you? What's your favorite so far?
card recipe:
stamps: pun fun
