Playing in the rain

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. Busy day with my grandsons.
I am with them on Monday and Wednesday in the summer. Only one of them had basketball practice early in the day and then the other 2 had baseball games at 6:00.

We went out for a quick lunch after Austin finished basbetball. It was another hot and humid day so the boys were settled in the air conditioning.

I went to Ethan's game because it was a tournament. They lost 19-10. He was disappointed but only for a little bit. Kids get over things a little easier than adults.

So onto my card for today. This one I made for the  Try a new technique challenge #384. on Splitcoaststampers -  Joan was our hostess and she wanted us to use sunbursts on our cards. They are really trendy right now.

I had a template to make my sunbursts. This definitely made it easier. The template can be found here.

I used designer paper from Stampin-Up in real red, daffodil delight and marina mist to create the sunbursts. The striped paper is also Stampin-Up designer paper.

My image is from Darcie's U-cuts. They are images that you have to cut out yourself. I used a Spellbinderslabel die to cut the image and then layered it over another Spellbinders die cut in daffodil delight.

I added some marina mist ribbon to complete my card. I didn't add a sentiment because I am not sure how I will use this yet.

Well it's time to dim the lights in charmed life land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Bunny Zoe's Crafts has a girls, girls, girls challenge.
2.  Stampin' Sisters in Christ wants us to use something new. My image is a new one and the sunburst technique is new for me.
3 Hiding in my Craft Room has a freestyle challenge this week.
