Hope You Can Cling to Challenge 1A

Happy Monday everyone and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. Well,  I made it through the weekend. Our out of town guests came in on Saturday and left this afternoon.

I was sort of in a tailspin because they called me on Thursday night and said they were coming in on Saturday. I had a women's breakfast at my church that I was hostessing. But thank the Lord I managed to get everything done that I wanted to. The breakfast and getting my home prepared for company.

We had a great dinner together on Saturday evening and lots of good conversation. They had tickets for the Steeler football game on Sunday afternoon and I went to watch my youngest grandson play football.

We met back at our home on Sunday night and just ate some pizza together. So it all worked out good.

Now onto my card for today. I am making cards for the Hope You Can Cling to Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. It's a month long card drive for the UT MD Andersen Cancer Center in Houston, TX.
There are lots of prizes being given away so click here if you want more information and how to play along  in the challenges.

The first challenge was hosted by Lydia. She wanted us to make a card and show us our style. The thing that makes me, me!!

I like using designer paper, ribbon and layers plus different color combinations. And, it is also my card for color challenge #395. Betty was the hostess and she chose the color palette of perfect plum, summer starfruit and tangerine tango.

We also had the option of using the 4th color of pool party. Whoo-Hoo I used all 4 colors.

The image I used is from Great Impressions Stamps – When It Rains –F448. I stamped it in perfect plum and then paper pieced all the rain boots in this week’s colors.

Card base is pool party and I layered perfect plum designer paper. My ribbon is Stampin-Up’s stitched satin ribbon in summer starfruit. I used a dahlia button for the bow center.

My layout is from the sweet stop sketch #178.

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