color challenge 330

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It was a beautiful day here in Pittsburgh.

We had our grandsons on an overnight so it made for a fun day as well. We went swimming in my neighbors pool. The boys had a lot of fun.

Sue is so sweet and she lets us use it whenever the boys come to visit. 

We also used the facetime feature on IPAD and had a visit with Phoenix Daisy and Ghilly. This was my first time using this app and I was so impressed with the quality of the connection and the audio.
I will be using this a lot now to spend more time with my sweet granddaughter.

The day ended so quickly and we headed back to the North Hills around 5:00. Ethan had baseball practice at 6:00 and Austin had an appointment with his trainer. Love the time I have with them.

My card for today is one that I made for the color challenge on splitcoaststampers.

Julia was our hostess this week and she chose a great trio of colors. We were to use Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry and Tangerine Tango. I really liked working with all these colors. 

I used an image from Stampendous -changito. I think this one is so cute. I colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol (odorless mineral spirits).

My patterned paper is from Stampin –Up and American Crafts. I used some rick rack –punched an anchor in tangerine tango and added some starfish buttons.

The sentiment is from the paper trey ink set “round and round”.

My layout is from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge #124. Loved working with this sketch for this card.

Well, it's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time.......
