Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.  Well it's Thanksgiving week and life is super busy.

I have 14 people coming for dinner on Thursday and all my preps have started today. I cleaned my upstairs today and tomorrow its the downstairs.  Then I have errands to run tomorrow and also finish the food shopping.

Wednesday will be spent cutting onions and celery and bread cubes, baking a pumpkin pie and making my speciality mashed potatoes. I will set both tables on Wednesday so I dont have to deal with that on Thursday.

This holiday is a favorite of mine and I love spending it with family.

Now onto my card for today. This is another that I made for the Hope you Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. This was challenge 24 and Libby was our hostess. She wanted us to make a card using the kissing technique. Info on that technique here.

My card is using Verve's "great friend" set. I stamped the flower in blushing bride ink and then the background stamp in bravo burgundy ink. My background stamp is Stampabilities "faded text".

I used the layout from the Viva la Verve October Week 2.

My background paper is Stampin-Up's "paisley petals" designer paper. I used baja breeze on my flower panel and layered that with the upper crest edge punch in bravo burgundy.

Used a leaf die from Cheery Lynn designs and cut it in old olive cardstock. My sentiment is also from the same Verve set and stamped in bravo burgundy.

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

Some other challenges:
1.  Artistic Inspirations has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Crafty Cardmakers wants us to use more than 1 punch/die. I used a die and a punch.
3. Paper Playtime has an anything goes challenge.
