~The Journey~

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. This is going to be such a busy week-end for me. I just found out that I have 3 out-of-town guests coming to stay with us.

I am so not prepared for guests- as in getting the house ready. But, I felt as though I couldn't say no. So tomorrow after my dentist appointment and going shopping for a woman's breakfast  that I am hosting at church on Saturday and getting the tables set-up and decorated, I will be cleaning my house.

Then on Saturday, after the women's breakfast, I will go food shopping so my guests have something to eat and then I can finish up anything that needs done in the house. Whew!! I want to keep a good attitude about this last minute stuff so I can enjoy my guests.

Onto my card for today.  My bicycle image is from Great Impressions Stamps – vintage big wheel E683. I stamped it in island indigo.

The sentiment is also from Great Impressions Stamps – D406. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the sentiment on 2 lines.

The background designer paper is from Stampin-Up’s "fan fair collection". It was perfect for this vintage bike image.

My card uses an older Mojomonday sketch 258. For the circles on this layout, I used the MFT die “dizzy doily and Spellbinders circle die. The circles at the top are punched in mustard and riding hood red cardstock

The flags are also from MFT and I cut them in island indigo cardstock. Added a button to my image and threaded mustard cardstock through it to complete my card.

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

Some other challenges:
1.  Crafts and Me has a sentiments challenge.
2.  Creative Belli has a sports theme. I thought a bike image represents a sporting activity. My button is from my stash of buttons.
3.  C.R.A.F.T. Challenge blog has a sport challenge.



  1. Great card, Mary! Love that button on the bike spoke.

  2. Mary, your vintage bicycle image looks fabulous on this loving and encouraging card. I agree that your choice of background paper is PERFECT!
