you're my hero

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We had a wonderful late spring day here in Pittsburgh. Sunny, low humidity a nice breeze was  blowing. One of those near perfect days.

I was working on the wedding invites. I really made a lot of progress today and that made me happy. I have another friend coming over tomorrow to lend me a hand. It should just be a few more days till completion. That makes me very happy.

I had a few pictures sent to me today from my daughter-in-law of Phoenix Daisy. She is being introduced to solid food now.

She had her first tastes of bananas which she loved. Tomorrow they are going to give her some rice cereal. She is just getting too big too fast-almost 6 months old.

Well onto my card for today. This one I made for the sketch challenge on splitcoaststampers. The sketch was a little tricky this week but once I figured out the panels I loved the look.  

This cute little mouse is a new stamp set just released from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps- patriotic cocoa. I stamped him on watercolor paper with memento ink and then used watercolor crayons and an aqua brush. I was happy how it turned out. 

I cut him out and used pop dots for some dimension. The patterned paper is from creative imaginations and also Stampin-Up.  My sentiment is also part of the patriotic cocoa set. This will be a father's day card for my hubby. Yes, he is my hero.

It's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So good night and God bless.......

Some other challenges:
1. Hanna and friends challenge blog wants us to use blue & white.
2. Some odd girl blog has a manly challenge.
3. Stamp Insanity has an anything goes challenge.
