Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 18

Happy Friday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today is my day to post on the Great Impressions Blog. See that post here.

I decided to make a card that would work for several challenges as well.

Hope You Can Cling To on Splitcoaststampers: These ones are for the UT MD Cancer Center in Houston.

Ardyth is our hostess for challenge 18. She wanted us to make a card inspired by one of the 4 vital signs:
heart beat (pulse), temperature, blood pressure or breathing.

I decided on the breathing. When the doctor or nurse takes your vitals they are always telling you to take a deep breath or breath in and breath out.

I used the fabulous sentiment by Great Impressions - "life is not measured F252". To keep the measuring theme I used some designer paper from Stampin-Up- the "fan fair" collection.

My card colors are island indigo and rich razzleberry. The layout is this week's sketch #145 from Pals Paper Arts

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

Some other challenges:
1.  Cards Galore Challenge Blog has an anything goes.
2Oozak Blog has a die-cuts challenge. I used 3 dies on my card.

  3. Hi, Mary! You've been so sweet with all of your recent visits to my blog. I've been up to my eyeballs in regular life stuff which has been keeping me away from my crafting space. When I did have a little time to myself, I was just too tired to be creative! It's been so nice to feel like making things again!

    I just LOVE this wonderful CAS card! Great colors and awesome quote. It's perfect for the challenge--you had your thinking cap on!!!

    Have a super weekend!
