Hope You Can Cling To Challenge 28

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
It has been raining here since last Saturday. We haven't had any major flooding just the rain.

My prayers go out to the families in both NY and NJ as more and more of the devastation of the storm is shown on TV. So I can deal with a little rain that will eventually stop.

I have been busy the last few days making final preps for a baby shower that I am hosting this Saturday. It is for one of the young couples at church. They are from Texas and have no family here. There are about 30 women coming, so it should be a great time.

I made some really cute centerpieces that I will photo and show on my blog later.

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

This 28th challenge was hosted by Leslie. She wants us to make a Clean & Simple card, with a sentiment or word as your focal point. It sounds easy enough but cas cards are a bit tough, I think so anyway.

For my card I used the sentiment from Great Impressions Stamps - nicest perks F189. I stamped it in a Spellbinders lacey oval frame.

I added some twine, a button and some butterflies. Finished my card edge with a Stampin-Up scallop punch.

Well, that's it for this post have lots of errands to run for the baby shower. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Forever Friends has an anything goes challenge.
2.  In The Pink has a cas challenge.
3.  Paper Crafting Journey has a ribbon or twine challenge.
