SCS Virtual Stamp Night Projects

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. I am having a wonderful time in San Francisco with my sweet and precious granddaughter, Phoenix Daisy.

We have been going to the park and playing outside with her baby and stroller and playing inside with everything.  Tomorrow is our day to go to the library for a toddler story time. She love s this.

Let me tell you that a 21 month old has unlimited energy. She will play and play and play and doesn't realize that she is wearing Grandma out (lol)!! But, I wouldn't change anything about this time for the world.

I may get tired but she is only a toddler for awhile and then poof it's gone. I have included a picture of her playing with bubbles. She was amazed that she could blow them and then trying to catch them was so much fun for her.

Anyway onto my card for today. This one I made for the Virtual Stamp Night challenge on Splitcoaststampers, Sept 21-22. The theme was back to school. It started on Friday night at 5:00 pm through 10:00 pm. Then picked back up on Saturday at 1:00 pm until 10:00 pm Saturday night.

There were challenges every hour. I was the hostess for the 9:00 hour on Saturday night. You only have 45 minutes to complete the challenge so a more simple card is what you need.

This card I am showing I did for 2 of the challenges. The first challenge on Friday evening was hosted by Leslie. She wanted us to use notebook paper on our card.

The last challenge on Friday evening was hosted by Lori. She wanted us to use some supply that you would find in a classroom.

I had this notebook paper in my stash that already had a pencil on it. It was some old scrap booking stuff. I layered the image on Stampin-Up marina mist card stock and stamped my “just a note” sentiment on it in marina mist ink.

Added some white ribbon and a spiral paper clip to the corner and that completed this card.

Well it's late and time to close this post. So I leave you with this precious picture of my sweet granddaughter.

Some other challenges:
1.  Scrappy Frogs has a back to school challenge.
