damask thank you

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. After church today I went to Aidin's last football game for this season.

It was a cold one sitting in the stands with the wind blowing and 47 degree temperatures. Oh, the things we endure for our grandchildren. Cold weather and all, I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

His team lost 14-0. Honestly, he didn't seem too upset after the game. He gave me a big hug and was ready to go home.

Onto the next sporting season, which for him will be 7th grade basketball. At least this will be inside.

And now it's onto my card for today. It covers 4 challenges:

1.  The featured stamper challenge on splitcoaststampers chose jazzytobi as the featured artist this week. Our hostess, Kim, described her cards as smooth and full of style. I chose her get well soon card to re-create ala Mary Marsh style.

We are to make at least 2 changes to the original card. My changes:  I kept my card to black and white, I used a different shape for my sentiment, I eliminated the scallop trim.

The damask background caught my eye because i knew I had some great paper just waiting to be used in my stash.
My background is actually recycled from a card I received from a friend. This was a store bought card, and I loved the damask background so I cut it out to reuse.

I also used some new (for me) Waltzingmouse stamps-they coordinate with the nestabilities labels 1 die. My sentiment is from Verve "dream big" set.
2.  The 2nd challenge is for the creative card crew. They wanted to see punches on your card. I used the labels 1 nestabilities on this card.

3.  The 3rd challenge is from the anything goes blog. We were to create something with the letter "B". My "B's" are a black card-black ink-black background.

4.  The 4th challenge is a new one for me but I have seen lots of other blog jump in on the Moxie Fab World- Tuesday Trigger. We were to incorporate damask into our design in an innovative way. I recycled this damask pattern from a store bought card.

Well, that's it for me for today my blogger friends. Hope you had a great Sunday.
