New Day

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Seems like Friday rolls around quicker and quicker each week (lol)!! Oh well, I guess that just brings the week-end in faster.

But this Friday is a special one here at our home. We have Ethan, our youngest grandson, here for a couple of days. I picked him up at school on Thursday and took him to a doctors appointment and then brought him to my home. Tonight, he and hubby are going to a high school football game. He loves doing that with his Pap.

Not sure what we will be doing during the day but something fun I am sure. That's why my post is up early today.

Now onto my card for today. This is my card for Splitcoaststampers color challenge #397.
Julia is our hostess and she chose very vanilla, choc chip and pumpkin pie for our color palette. She also wanted us to make a fall/thanksgiving card.

Layout is the sweet stop sketch #180. My background designer paper is from DCWV "harvest gathering stack" collection.

My larger rectangle panel is striped designer paper from Stampin-Up's-chocolate chip collection.

For my smaller rectangle panel, I used the pumpkin harvest Cuttlebug embossing folder in pumpkin pie. My oval is cut in very vanilla from the Spellbinders floral oval die.

The sentiment is a stamp from Great Impressions Stamps – new day E770. I stamped in chocolate chip ink. To finish my card and the sketch I die cut a pennant flag in chocolate chip cardstock using a Spellbinders die.

That's my card for today so until next time........God bless.
