tea with a friend

vertical pocket card closed view
Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

It was one of those laid back days that I love.
Of course, if you ask my hubby he will tell you that all my days are that way now that I am retired (lol)!!

I got caught up on email-blog hopping-made a card because I wanted to and spent time with my husband. Nice!!

My card that I am showing was made for the free for all challenge on splitcoaststampers. Dawn was our hostess and she challenged us to make a pocket card.

I checked out the resource section at splitcoaststampers and decided on a vertical pocket.

For the card front I used patterned paper from Stampin-Up's "sweet pea" collection.

The sentiment is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps "tea time" collection. I stamped it on a die cut from Spellbinders "fleur de lis" accents.

The card inside has another of the shapes from the fleur de lis set.

I stamped my teapot and paper pieced it with the same collection of patterned paper. The teapot is also from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Some other challenges:
1.  Allsorts challenge blog wants us to use 3 different stamps. I used 2 different sentiments and a teapot stamp.
2.  Catch the bug blog has an anything goes challenge.
3.  The crafty catz weekly challenge wants us to use a quote or sentiment.
4.  Fairy Fun Fridays has a here comes the girls challenge. We are to use anything associated with girls.

Time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. Church in the morning and then I will be back in the afternoon.
In closing, I wanted tp show another  picture of my sweet granddaughter Phoenix Daisy. She is almost 5 months old already.

So until next time........
