Party This Way

Happy Tuesday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. I am out in San Francisco with my granddaughter Phoenix Daisy. I left my hubby home to hold down the fort.

We are having a wonderful time together. Yesterday, I took her to the local library where they have a story time for toddlers. The woman who runs it is so good with little ones. they sang songs and of course it was all the ones that Phoenix Daisy knows and loves. And, they also read her favorite book "The wheels on the bus".

We went over to the park to play for a little bit and then home for lunch and take her nap. Just a fun day with her & I.

Well onto my card for today. I was the hostess this week on Splitcoaststampers for the color challenge #373. I chose the color palette of wild wasabi, pumpkin pie and bashful blue.
I thought it was a good trio for a masculine or a kids card.

I had the perfect designer paper for my card. Which is the reason I chose these colors to begin with.
The paper is from an older retired pack the "jersey shore" collection. It has all 3 colors in it.

My balloon image is from the "party this way" set. I stamped the balloons and then used embossing powder to make them stand out a bit. I stamped the party this way arrow, cut it out and placed it over a punched circle.

My layout is from the Wednesday stamp club at My Favorite Things.

Well it's time to close this post. So until next time.......God bless. Here is a picture from Phoenix Daisy and I at the library yesterday.

1.  Celebrate the Occasion blog has a male birthday card using a circle challenge.

2.   Crafty Sentiments has a spots or stripes challenge.
