Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We have really had some hot, humid weather the past few days. I am lovin' it- I tell ya!!

My grandsons were here the last few days, and we spent hours in my neighbors pool. Just the stuff you should do in the summer time.

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for 2 challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The Friday Queen For A Day  and the Free For all challenge.

Jeanne was our hostess for F4A123  and she wanted us to take some of those paper scraps from other projects and create an interesting background for our card by arranging the bits and pieces. This was perfect for the QFTD119 challenge.

Mary Brown aka stampercamper was chosen as Queen this week. The idea behind this challenge is to select one of her creations and recreate it. She is a great clean and simple stamper. I chose her little leaves card.

I kept the same colors and layout. Instead of a die-cut, I embossed the single poppy image from the Marks Finest Papers set - "welcome poppies".

I change the ribbon color to peach parfait.

My sentiment is from another Marks Finest Papers set -"fabulous dogs".

I used a My Favorite Things die - fishtail flags stax for my pennant. Well that's it for this post. I have another one coming today as well. So until next time..................God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Crafty Calendar Challenge has a flowers in bloom challenge this month.
2.  Chocolate, Coffee and Cards has an anything goes challenge.
3.  Fun with Shapes and more wants us to use a die-cut or punch. I used a pennant die on my card.
4. Paper Play Challenges wants us to use flgs/pennants/banners. I use a flag for my sentiment.
