Happy Spring

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Feeling better today and I was able to go over to meet my grandsons school bus.

Aidin is still sick with his cold. He went to school today but he said he really didn't feel good. I took him some E-mer-gencee. It's a vitamin C powder with antioxidants and electrolytes plus B vitamins.

I made him something to eat and he drank some of the vitamin C mixture and he perked up a bit.

I helped him with his vocabulary homework. He is so proud that he is maintaining a 100% average when he takes these tests. He always credits me and the time we spend together working on this.
He is amazed every week that I know the words and definitions plus I correct some of his pronunciations.  It makes me feel good to be looked up to in this way.

So anyway that was part of my day. Now onto the card that I made.

This one was made for the color challenge #363 on Splitcoaststampers. Joanne was our hostess and she chose the beautiful color trio of pink pirouette, pretty in pink and basic gray. She also wanted us to use buttons on our card. 

My bunny image is from the “blessings” set a new release from Marks Finest Papers. I colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

The layout I used is this week’s mojomonday sketch #229.

My background layer is pretty in pink then for the sketch panels I used basic gray designer paper. The image panel is mounted on pink pirouette paper and I added basic gray satin ribbon and some pink ribbon to this layer.

Topped it off with a button.

To complete my card I stamped my sentiment in a Spellbinder pennant die and punched a butterfly.

Well its late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time.....God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Scrap-Creations has a critter challenge.
2The Outlawz has a recipe challenge this week. Use 2 papers-2 embellishments-1 ribbon.
3Creative Stamp Friends has a theme of being inspired by your favorite song. With this card my song is "Here comes Peter cottontail".
4Pollycraft Monday challenge wants us to use ribbon and buttons.
