craft your passion challenge

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Hope you had a great week-end. Ours was a busy one. I had a Premier Designs jewelry party on Friday night. It was fun girls night.

On Saturday we went to Ethan's game and then over to our son's home for dinner. We had a belated fathers day celebration. The boys all had baseball games the week before so it didn't work out for us to have dinner together. My daughter-in-law made a wonder dinner for my hubby and her dad.

We started off with a cheese platter to nibble on while dinner was being prepared. We had a Stilton with blue cheese and a white cheddar with cranberries. She also made some salsa and served it with tortilla chips.

For dinner we had pork tenderloin with fresh sage and apples. It was so delicious. Her mashed potatoes were made with Yukon gold potatoes and they were really creamy and tasty. A nice tossed salad and rolls completed the meal.

The boys and my hubby have a standing wiffle ball game every time we go over there. So dessert was interrupted. When the game was over we had to rush out because the tunnel that we drive through to get to our house was closing at 10:00 for repairs. So we missed out on a raspberry tart.

Now that I have made everyone hungry.... I can talk about my card (lol)!!

This is my last week as a guest designer for the craft your passion blog. I cant believe June went by so quickly. This week the challenge is seeing red. We are to use the color red on our project.

I was given this digi image by Lauretta to work with for this challenge. It's called "gnome siesting".

I colored his suit with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. For the mushroom and his hat I did some paper piecing. I used this sentiment because  I thought the image would make a good belated birthday card. I send enough of those ones for sure.

I used a paper crimper for my red layer. The background patterned papers are from BoBunny-unforgettable stripes collection. The layout is a sketch from the crazy 4 challenge blog.

Well that's it for this post so until next time.........
