Love You

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. It was a beautiful fall day here in Pittsburgh.We started it off with church. Our Pastor had a great message and the worship team was awesome.
Football was the order of the day after church that is. Our 2 grandsons-Ethan & Aidin- had the opportunity to play at Heinz Field at half time of the Steeler game. They are on different teams but for the same school. Each team had the opportunity for 6 plays. Aidin caught a touch down pass. He was so excited.
We didn't get to go because you need a ticket for the Steeler football games. We just watch on TV each week. Although the network doesn't show the half time events. So we got the details from my daughter-in-law. The boys will give me more info when I see them on Tuesday.

So onto my card for today. This one I made for a couple of challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The ways to use it challenge was a pink-pink-pink challenge. I am also taking part in the "hope you can cling to" challenges.

Splitcoaststampers is partnering with the UT MD Anderson Cancer Center In Houston, TX to benefit those affected by breast cancer.  Get more info here.

My friend Wanda Cullen was hosting one of those challenges. She called it "hang in there". She wanted us to create a card with something hanging on it.

My card uses the Stampin-up set "season of friendship", "aviary" and "joy". I stamped my tree & bird cage in chocolate chip ink and my bow & birdies in pretty in pink.

Punched a tag from the Martha Stewart tag punch and hung that from the tree as well. I added some pink satin ribbon, felt rick rack and hero arts pearls to complete my card.

Well my blogger friends it's late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. Until next time ........God bless
