color challenge welcome

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. My day started and ended well. I opened up email this morning to discover that I was last weeks winner on the stampin' sisters for Christ blog.

I was so excited. I have never one a contest with my cards until now.

This is the card that was selected. My day started with a blessing that's for sure.

This is also my day with my grandsons. They were happy for me when I told them about my card especially Aidin.
He looked it over and gave his opinion. So like Aidin-he is filled with compliments for his Grandma.

They were supposed to come here for Easter dinner but my husband has to work. The airlines is a 7 day a week business.

Ethan our youngest said, "don't worry Gram-Gram you'll be with us for Easter".

They will have dinner with my daughter-in-laws family.

Ethan said he will call his Aunt tonight and let her know that his Grandma is coming also. Kids are just too cute. They never see a problem just a simple solution.
I just love my boys. They want to love and watch over me.

Just like how our God protects us. I learned a little lesson today being with my grandsons. Another blessing in the mid-day.

So now onto my card for today. On Tuesday's at splitcoaststampers, Betty Wright, hosts the color challenge. Today, she chose the colors Bermuda Bay (teal), basic gray, and so saffron.

I liked the color combo. It's bright and so spring looking.

I used Mercy Kerin's sketch challenge for my layout. This one was a great one to work with. It allowed for a lot of the designer paper to show. I wanted my houses to be a focal point since this is a welcome card.

I added a fence with the Martha Stewart border punch. I also made a faux button. I used the sizzlits die #5. There are 4 different size buttons on this die. I like it because you can have a matching button in any color carstock. I used some embroidery floss to give a more finished look.

The bermuda bay ribbon was my finishing touch and my card was complete.

Well, it's the end of the day now. My house is quiet-hubby is in bed reading. I am ready to turn out the lights in charmed life land for another day.

I would love to hear the good things that are going on in your life as well. Or if you would like me to pray for you-drop me an email. God is concerned about all that's going on in our lives.
