best wishes

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

I have been enjoying the beautiful cool summer weather here in Pittsburgh the past few days.
We are having some of those perfect summer days with low humidity and lots of sunshine.

The overnight temps have been a little cooler but again its perfect sleeping weather with the windows open and no air conditioning.

I have been busy working on Kendra's wedding invitations. I really made some progress the past few days. I have to get the sample  invite together for the shower as well. I should have some help on these ones, and I only have to make 56 of them.

I ordered a new stamp set from My Time Made Easy. It's Lauren Meader's "spot of tea" collection.
The shower is going to be an afternoon tea. I am excited to be able to make the invitations and also attend the event.

My card for today is one that I made at our stamp club a couple of months ago. Our hostess, Christine Cusick, is also our Stampin-Up demo. She had some great ideas for our club meeting. 

This card used the daisy die #2. We went with a pink pirouette designer paper and used the large brads for the center.

The sentiment is from the Stampin-Up  "oval all" set. This set is designed wo work with their oval punches.

I thought the best wishes sentiment could be used for a variety of occasions. I am going to send it to a friend who recently celkebrated 42 years of marriage. That is an incredible milestone in this day and age.

Well, that's my card for today. Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July week-end.
