Love you

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Cold and blustery was our day here in Pittsburgh. A perfect day for staying home in front of the fireplace and relaxing. That would be an ideal day for sure. But we didn't do that.

After church we had lunch with our Pastor and a guest speaker that came to church. The speaker really brought and encouraging message to our church. He spoke on miracle comebacks and used the sporting world for analogies. He said God loves the word "impossible".

It was a great message to start our day. We came home in time to change and go our grandsons basketball games. One win and one loss was the order there. We went out to dinner with our son, daughter-in-law and grandsons. We ate too much but it was a fun time.

Now I am back home and its still cold and the fireplace is not on (lol). Oh well onto today's post before its time to dim the lights for another day.

This card I made for the inspiration challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Stef is our hostess and she introduced us to the Polyvore site. It the web's largest fashion community site and was loaded with inspiration to create a card.

I chose the Moschino cheap and chic bag as my inspiration piece. I thought I would make another Valentines card in black and red. I kept this one fairly simple.

I used Core-dinations black cardstock and punched hearts in red. My large heart is lined with licorice bakers twine. I added a Stampin-Up heart brad to the center.

My middle layer is a piece of Bazzill maraschino cardstock and I again used licorice bakers twine. I added a spellbinders ribbon tag for my sentiment.
The sentiment is from a soon to be released this week from Marks Finest Papers - "you are cherished".

I am part of a blog hop starting Tuesday that will show all the new sets and samples from the design team so drop on by then.

Well thats my card for today. So until next time.......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1Outlawz Sunday Challenge is to use twine on as CAS card.
2Stampin Sisters in Christ has a something new challenge. I used a new stamp set.
3.  Designed To Delight has a hearts challenge.
