Happy Baby Boy

Happy Sunday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. We had a great week-end of activities. Saturday was our annual block picnic. It was a nice day of catching up on people's lives.

Everyone brings a dish to share and we cook hamburgers and hot dogs. My next door neighbor is the host house. We ended up our evening with a fire in the fire pit. We laughed because 2 days earlier it was so hot and humid we couldn't have even consider it. But Saturday was rain early in the day and then much cooler temps.

Sunday afternoon we went to Ethan's (middle grandson) football game. It was a somewhat cooler day but sunny -just perfect football weather. They won so that's always good.

Tonite we went to see the Jersey Boys at the Benedum Center in downtown Pittsburgh. My brother-in-law gave us tickets and we had great seats. About 10 rows back from the stage, and we really enjoyed the music. I will be singing the songs for a few days.

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for a couple from church that are our worship leaders. They just had a baby boy.

The Friday challenge on Splitcoaststampers was to make a baby card. But we were not to use the typical baby images.

There is also the Queen For A Day challenge as well. This week the honors went to Peggy McCurry. She is on the design team with me at Splitcoaststampers and I wanted to make a card to honor her.

I chose this card of Peggy's to recreate ala Mary Marsh style.

For my pinwheel, I used Stampin-Up's pacific point designer paper. It was cut with a die from Lil Inkers Design. My background layer is also Stampin-Up designer paper from the "attic boutique collection" in daffodil delight. I added some corduroy buttons in the center.

I used a Martha Stewart zig zag punch for my border and also used white rick rack. Stamped my sentiment also from Lil' Inkers pinwheel sentiments set.  That's my card for today.

It's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day so until next time.......God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Come and get it challenges has a tic-tac-toe. I used die-cut-buttons-ribbon (rick-rack).
2.  Pile It On has a patterned paper challenge.
3.  Stampin Sisters In Christ has a bright colors only challenge.
