thanks a bunch

Happy  Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I decided to post early today because we may be going to Ethan's (youngest grandson) baseball game tonight. The weather forecast is for heavy storms tonight so we will wait and see.
They just returned from a trip to Boston to watch the RedSox play. I am anxious to hear how it went.  The boys love taking these trips. My son & daughter-in-law have made it into an annual thing. They travel to a city that has a major league baseball team and then also take in some sightseeing.

My card for today is for 2 challenges:

1.  the mojomonday blog has a contest the first Monday of the month. The layout was a great one this month and really lets your designer paper show.
I used BoBunny designer paper-the ella butter blossom. Since its double sided, I was able to use both sides for this layout. I layered it on top of stampin-up's riding hood red card stock.
I cut out one of the flowers and added it to my dotted panel.
My image is from an old stampin-up set that a friend gave me called "love ya bunches".
I colored the image with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

2.  The 2nd challenge is from the StampinB challenge blog. This week we were to use botanicals on our card. My image and paper has flowers all over it so I am good on this one.
The design team on this blog really put together some awesome samples. Go take a peak.

It's time for me to put the wraps on this post. Enjoy your week-end my blogger friends!!
