Love is a Fruit

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We just returned from my youngest Grandson's basketball game.

Yes, he goes from one sport to the next. Just last Sunday we watched him play a championship football game. This Sunday it was a pre-season basketball tournament. What we liked about it besides getting to watch Ethan play was that it was held in the community we live in.
So instead of having to drive 45-50 minutes to get to the game we drove 5 minutes. Made it so nice for us. They won the tournament final game 32-30. Now we are home in time to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers play Sunday night football.

On another note, I had a voice mail message from my 2 year old granddaughter. Yes, she is comfortable with technology (lol)!!
She will take my son's I-Pad or his I-Phone and start touching the screen. When they try and take it from her she just says "Grandma" and sometimes they will give me a call or we use the FaceTime feature.

So yesterday she made a cell call to me but I missed it. But, good for me because I now have a voice mail message that I can save for a s long as I want to.

Phoenix Daisy
She is starting to talk in sentences or attempting to anyway. So her message was "hi Grandma (pronounced Bam-Ma by her)-then some silence then "how are you Bam-Ma".

I was all giggly the rest of the day just thinking about her. I even took my cell to church to let some of my friends listen to her. And of course I posted it on FaceBook. Oh, I am so one of those Grandmothers.

Now onto my card for today. This is another that I made for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers.

Denise was our hostess and her challenge #22 was to use only one of each stamp, one button, one sheet of DP, one sheet of colored card stock, one rhinestone etc. You can use any combination of things but only one of each type of product (the card base, a sentiment stamp, and ink don't count).

For my card: 1 flower image (recycled from a wedding invite), 1 sentiment, 1 die cut, 1 colored card stock, 1 patterned paper. That completed my card for this challenge.

It's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time......God Bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  The Squirrel and The Fox has an anything goes challenge.
2.  Happy Campers Craft Collective has a "bright colors" challenge.
3Pin and Tack Handcrafted Delights has an anything goes challenge.
