Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. My day started early with a leadership meeting at church. We are having a coffee bar on Friday's now from 9:00-11:00 am. For awhile the coffee and doughnuts will be free. So my hubby and I hung around there for awhile to chat with the people who dropped in. I ate 2 doughnuts-they were really yummy but I cant do that every week or I wont be fitting in my clothes come summer (lol)

When we returned home I wanted to do some card making and I did. Today I made 3 cards and in record time as well. I will post them over the next few days.

The one I am showing now I made for the free for all challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Dawn was our hostess and she watned us to use a rainbow on our cards.

Well I had the perfect paper in my stash for this challenge. I layered it on some soft pastels card stock.

I just stamped sentiments on this card. They are from a new set to be released next week by Marks Finest Papers -"dogwood blossoms".

The new set had the perfect sentiments to go with my rainbow. I stamped them in rich razzleberry ink. I used a Spellbinder labels 4 die cut.

To complete my card I used some certainly celery ribbon and lilac bakers twine- made a bow added a button and I am done.

I also wanted to send a big thank to Wilfreda from the Wennie in Wonderland blog for extending to me the liebster blog award. The idea of the award is that it be given to bloggers with less than 200 followers in the hope that it will bring them new friends and followers.
She paid me such a sweet compliment on her blog about my work. 

Well its late and time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day.
