Relax A Bit

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We have had such a busy weekend.  A family birthday party on Saturday night and then a covered dish dinner with some friends from church tonite. Both were such fun times and interestingly  the menus were fairly similar. How does that happen with 2 completely different sets of people?

We had pulled pork at one and pulled beef at the other. Cheesy potatoes and a fruit salad at both. Desserts were different at both and oh so delicious.

Yummy food and I ate too much at both. So here I am on Sunday night after 3 nights on the go just kind of wiped out. I am really looking forward to getting to bed in a few minutes.

My card for today is one that I made for the featured stamper #264 challenge on Splitcoaststampers. This week the paper artist being honored is Janice Melton aka catcrazy. She has a gallery filled with beautiful cards. I chose her thanks a latte card to recreate ala Mary Marsh style.

Instead of a coffee mug I used a teapot. My image is on a rectangle Spellbinders die instead of an oval. The teapot image & sentiment are from a new stamp set from Marks Finest Papers - "relax a bit". I colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

I changed the card colors as well but somewhat kept the layout. Instead of a paper crimped background I used card stock that has embossed teapots.

My paper is from StampinUp- always artichoke, river rock and the white embossed paper is from Lasting Impressions.

Added some pink ribbon and a flower center to complete my card. Well that's it for me today. My eyes are screaming for some sleep so until next time.......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Cupcake challenge #149. I used the green cupcakes as my inspiration and my card colors.
2.  2 Sisters has an anything goes challenge.
