Miss Dizzy Lizzy

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We had some heavy rains here most of the day today. But the temps were fairly mild.

It was a good day for staying inside which I did. Spent some time cleaning my house and some other projects that needed completed.

We have another busy weekend coming up. Friday we are having a fish fry at our church and we are part of the team that is putting it on.
Saturday my card club is meeting and it's at my home. It's been several months since we met so I am anxious to get together. We will make 5 cards and this one is a technique get together. Everyone has a different idea so it will be fun.
Sunday after church our middle grandson has a basketball game and then we have a family birthday party to go to. Whew! It will be go go go for 3 days but all fun stuff.

Now onto the card I have for today. There is a challenge on Splitcoaststampers on Tuesdays know as the teapot challenges. They are just plain old fun challenges and usually you have the option to send the card you make off to someone. This week our cards are going to Austin, TX to a woman who broke her femur and is having a slow recovery.

My card has the whimsical cat image from the Stampin-Up fun pun set. I stamped it in cajun craze ink on peach parfait paper. I did it this way for Monday's technique challenge #367 to use one color and no coloring of your image. The sentiment is from the Stampin-Up set "kind and caring thoughts".

My layout is from an old sketch challenge #348. My designer paper was in my stash and I don't know who makes it.
I used an mft rick rack die and a sizzix button die to complete my card. Well that's it for me today. Time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time........God bless

Some other challenges:
1.  Crop Stop Challenges wants us to use at least 4 different colors. I used cajun craze, peach parfait and my designer paper has brownm yellow and blue.
2.  Moving Along With The Times wants us to create something cute with a button.
