Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 1C

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.  Today I attended another cooking class at a local cooking school and kitchen ware supply in Pittsburgh. It's the Crate Cook. The classes are demonstration style and then we get to eat what they cook. It's called a lunch & learn.

Today the menu was: BBQ Mahogany Salmon, Indian Summer Gratin with Butternut Squash, Potatoes, Corn, and Bacon Fruit and Nut Stuffed Apples with Cream Drizzle

I liked everything we had and plan on making the Gratin as a side dish for Thanksgiving. If you would like any recipes, just drop me an email or leave a comment and I will send them out to you in email.

Now onto my card for today. This is another one that I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Beate was our hostess for the "rays of hope" challenge. She wanted us to make a card in mostly gray tones with just a splash of color. To show that there is always hope in the battle against cancer.

My card is using the sentiment from ODBD "never give up". I stamped it in the vintage label 10 from Waltzingmouse Stamps and then used a Spellbinders labels 10 die to cut it out.

My layout is this weeks WMS #117. Added some satin ribbon and a bow with button center to complete this card. 

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

Some other challenges:
1.  Crafts and Me Challenges has an anything goes.
2.  Divas by Design has an anything goes.
3.  Simon Says Stamp wants us to use dies or punches. I used both on my card.


  1. Your cooking classes sound like so much fun. I must admit our "lunch and learns" at work are not as interesting as yours even with them giving us a free lunch lol!
    Your card is exquisite with the little pop of pink!

  2. Mary, hello from an old 'Burgher! What a wonderfully inspirational card for someone undergoing treatments - thank you so much for sharing it with us at the Simon Says Stamp challenge!
