howl- I love you

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Today was my day with my grandsons. They had a busy after school schedule. Austin ha d to be back at school at 5:00 for basketball practice. Aidin had after school practice for a play and had to be picked up at 4:30. Ethan had a basketball game at 6:30 and Aidin played after Ethan was finished.

No one had homework today. Whew-good thing with all the driving I had to do. I made them something to eat and then we left for the basketball games. Ethan's team won by 1 point and Aidin's team lost by 10.

So now I am back home and watching CSI as I type my blog post. I love being with the boys and wish I lived closer to them. It's something I have been thinking a lot about lately.

So for my card today. This one I made for the sketch challenge #371  on Splitcoaststampers. Holly was our hostess and she gave us this awesome layout to turn into a card. I actually got this one together fairly quick. I was able to complete it before I left for my sons's home. 

My image is from a soon to be released stamp aet from Marks Finest Papers - the North American Woods set.

This card is for one of my grandsons. I made the sentiment a little play on words with the "howl" and "I love you". He will like it a lot.

My patterned papers are from BoBunny -heart attack" collection.  On the middle panel I used a heart paper crimper. The red heart is cut from a Spellbinders die.

That's my card for today. It's time to draw this post to a close so until next time.......God bless.
