Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 9

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you had a relaxing weekend and some fun this weekend. We went to our youngest grandson's football game on Sunday afternoon.

They won in overtime 14-12. It's only a 6th grade team but we love going to watch. And it was a perfect day for a football game. Sunny but on the cool side and definitely sweat shirt weather.

We came back home and had an old-fashioned Sunday dinner. I made a roast in the crock pan and roasted some potatoes in the oven and some sweet corn. It reminded me of Sundays when I was growing up. Our meal was always special and different than the rest of the week. Hubby loved everything and now he has left-overs for lunch today. He has an especially long day at work.

Now onto my card for today. I am still working on the cards for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. They are all going to the UT MD Cancer Center in Houston, TX.

For Challenge 9 Patricia was our hostess for you "had me in stitches".  She wants us to create a humorous card using stitching as an embellishment.

For my card I used the stamp set "flamingos on vacation" from Marks Finest Papers.

I stamped the flamingos in melon mambo ink on pretty in pink cardstock- so no coloring required.
I then did some fussy cutting and added them to the white card stock.
The sentiment is also stamped in melon mambo ink.

My card base is pear pizzazz with matching designer paper on the next layer. I cut my scallop edge with the MFT die "jumbo scallops".

My stitching is faux-I used a stamp from Marks Finest Papers "sew what" set. My Stampin-Up ribbon is also stitched.

That's my card for today. Time to close this post so until next time......God bless.

1.  ABC Challenges has a new to you challenge. I used new stitched ribbon.
