Hi it's me

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We have had 2 days of sunshine and warm weather. Now could this be the start of a real spring fling!! I hope so (lol)!!

Today now we are back to rain and slighter cooler temps. But it's supposed to warm up again starting tomorrow. The tulips, daffodils and hyacinths are all growing nicely. I can't wait to see them in full bloom.

Anyway, enough of my longing for springtime weather & flowers. Let's move onto my card for today.

I made this one for the color challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week our hostess is Peggy and she chose the spring time colors of so saffron, pear pizzazz and pretty in pink.

I used designer paper from Stampin-Up in so saffron & pear pizzazz and some so saffron ribbon.

My image is from MFT their "pure innocence" line. I just love these stamps. In fact this company has a sketch challenge every Wednesday and I am entering into that as well. If you win, you get to pick a stamp set.

I did some paper piecing on the dress, tee and socks in pretty in pink and pear pizzazz. I added a crocheted flower that I sponged with pear pizzazz ink and a pink ribbon flower.  And that ladies & gentlemen completed my card.

Some other challenges I am entering:
1.  The stamp-n-doodle blog has a girly challenge.
2.  Woodware USA has an anything goes challenge.
3.  The Stamptacular Sunday challenge is girls and swirls.
4.  Craft your days away blog has a spots & stripes challenge.
