Ribbit Ribbit

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. It was such a beautiful summer day here in Pittsburgh. Sunny and hot but no humidity, just the type of day I like for summer.

I went to the farmers market this evening to pick up some of the season's bounty. We purchased some delicious corn on the cob, green peppers, broccoli, Spanish onions, cilantro and a cucumber.

This particular farmers market is represented by at least 15 local farms. It runs through October. I love going and being able to eat local fresh produce for several months.  

We ate the corn with our salmon, spinach and feta cheese burgers tonight. Dinner was yummy!!

Well onto my card for today. This one I made for the sketch challenge #393 on Splitcoaststampers.  Taylor is the hostess and she provided us with a unique layout this week. 

I already had colored my frog image so all I needed was the paper to go with it. I found this kraft and green dotted paper and kraft and striped paper that I bought a couple of months ago. I thought it would work with the layout and my image.

The frog and sentiments are part of a new set from Marks Finest Papers - "garden art" that will be released next week. In fact, there will be a blog hop starting July 17. So drop by then because there will be stamp sets to be won.

Well it's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land so until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Celebrate The Occasion has a birthday challenge.
2.  Scrap-Creations wants us to use something we bought in the last 2 months. That would be my designer paper.
3.  Top-Tip Tuesday has a one for the men challenge.
4.  Cards for Men has a happy birthday challenge.
