ps I love you, austin

Happy Friday and welcome to the charmed life blog. We actually had some sunshine here in the 'Burgh today. It was enough to begin the melting process of the icicles that are hanging from my house.

The leaking has stopped. Thank the Lord. My husband knocked away some of the ice that was hanging on our shutters and on the siding.

He was very careful and after he did that the sun took care of some more of it. Where the water was coming in the front windows has stopped. We had ice hanging off our dtv satellite and that was affecting some of the channels. The sun also took care of that.

We may not have sunshine for several more days, so I am happy with the result of what took place today.

Well, now onto my card for today. I mentioned not having valentines cards for all 3 grandsons done yet so that was my mission today.

The ccee stampers blog had an inspiration challenge today. I enjoy these types of challenges. We visited the imagekind site to get our inspiration.

I immediately found a print that I liked and decided it would make an easy card.
I like the simplicity of the design as well.

I used a square punch and a heart punch and basically that was the card.

I loved the colors the palspaper arts challenge blog used last week. So that's what I went with for my card.
The colors are black, melon mambo, and pretty in pink. They are nice, bright colors together.

I used a penny black stamp for the sentiment. I decided to cut it out and place on the front of the card.

This card is for Austin. He is my oldest grandson. He just likes getting cards from me but he really doesn't pay too much attention to the card unless his brother points out something about the design or stamp.

I made Aidin an easel card. He likes the technique cards and will study it. I will post his card tomorrow.

Well, my friends its time to wrap up this post.

I leave you something I read in scripture today.

I was reading in the book of Daniel. Just to sum it up, when you find yourself in a tight spot, share your need with a trusted friend who believes in God's power. Don't panic-that only confirms your hopelessness. Prayer is more effective and confirms your hope in God.

If you need someone to pray for a situation, email me or leave me a comment here.
