Hope You Can Cling TO Challenge 12

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well we survived the "Franken-Storm".

The storm was on a path to Pittsburgh and then when it reached the center of the state it turned north. We had rain and wind but no major damage or flooding. It has been raining here since Saturday but the only heavy day was Monday.

The Eastern part of our state was hit a bit heavier. My prayers go out to NY & NJ where there was terrible destruction.

My card for today is another that I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. The cards are going to the Andersen Cancer Center in Houston, TX.

Dini is our hostess for the "spreading the news" challenge. She wants us to make a card inspired by a show tune from any musical or movie. Mine is the Disney movie I'll Be Home For Christmas.The song of the same name was part of the movie soundtrack.

So for my image I used an  image I received from our recent stamp club meeting. We ran out of time to put the card together there. The image is from the Stampin-Up "Christmas lodge" set. It is stamped in not quite navy ink and a Spellbinders labels 4 to cut it out. It was sponged before removing it from the die.

The background snowflake embossing is a folder from Sizzix. I used a piece of unknown patterned paper with a musical score on it.
Added some ribbon and a bow & snowflake button on this layer.

The sentiment stamped in not quite navy ink and cut out with a Spellbinder oval die and sponged before removing from die.

That's it for me today so until next time........God Bless.
