In The Meadow

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I cant believe how fast this summer is flying by. My grandsons start back to school in about 2 1/2 weeks.

They have had so many activities and games that they were involved in this summer. Which is the reason that I think it's gone so fast. Many of my days with them have been dropping this one off and picking another one up and then actually going to the baseball games.

My time with them is so precious . I love the individual relationship I have with each of them. It's one of those reflective  days, I suppose.

Anyway onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #388 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she had a blue challenge. Tempting turquoise, pacific point, and night of navy were her color palette choices.

I decided to make a Christmas card with these colors. My snowman image is the Great Impressions stamp – G289.

Stamped the image and then paper pieced their scarves, hats and boots with all 3 of the challenge colors. I fussy cut the snowman to layer on the card.

My card base is night of navy and I embossed it with a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder. I added 2 white Stampin-Up felt flurry snowflakes to the base.

I used some PaperTrey Ink dies – “in the meadow collection” and cut the snow bank as well as the little downhill sledder (pacific point). The sentiment and night of navy snowflakes are from this same “in the meadow set”.

Well that's it for me today. So until next time.........God bless.
