PS I Love You

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I had a good friend of mine come over this morning for coffee after she dropped her son off at school. We had such a great time of catching up on so much.

We enjoyed coffee from our new Keurig coffee maker. My husband received it as a Christmas gift and I love how hot the coffee is as well as all the delicious coffee that you can make.

I registered the machine and was offered 2 free boxes of K-cups if I purchased two. Well I jumped right on that one. I am on a mission now to find the K-cups at the best price. So if any of my readers have an ideas let me know. I refuse to pay .60 each for the K-cups.

So now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #410 on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and I chose the trio of calypso coral, soft suede and pool party. I challenged everyone to make a non-traditional Valentine's card.

For my card I kept it on the clean and simple side. The designer paper is from the Stampin-Up "sweet shoppe" collection in calypso coral. I cut the designer paper and the background layer with the Spellbinders die matting basics A & B. Makes layering so easy.

I used another Spellbinder die and cut a rectangle in soft suede and layered pool party on that. My hearts are also a Spellbinders die classic hearts. Cut those in calypso coral and soft suede.

My image is from Penny Black and I stamped in soft suede. I added some soft suede ribbon and bow with a coral brad center to complete my card.

Well that's it for me today so until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Crafts and Me wants us to use our fav embellishment. Love die-cuts and ribbon.
2.  Simon Says Stamp has an anything goes challenge. I used a Penny Black stamp.
3.  Sisterhood of Crafters has a hearts challenge.
4.  The Perfect Sentiment has anything goes with a die-cut.
5The Stamping Chef has a "love" challenge.


  1. That's such a pretty card!And I LOVE the colors! Thank you for playing along with TSC!


  2. Very pretty Mary!! Such a pretty color combo and I love your layout of the card :)

  3. Fabulous card, Mary!! Love those colors and the design you used for this.
    My husband got one of those coffee machines for Christmas and just loves it. Let me know if you can find the Kcups at a good price.

  4. Awesome job Mary! I would have never thought to use these colors with the hearts! Beautiful! Thanks so much for joining us at The Sisterhood ‘I {HEART} VALENTINE’S’ challenge and please come back again soon!

  5. What a wonderful color combination, Mary! I love the bow...and our keurig! We joined their Club Keurig when we registered, and get some of the more unusual flavors through that. For most of his coffees, my husband gets them at Walmart. Plus he has tried the "Great Value" brand, and has stated they are not too bad...and reasonable. If you are a tea drinker, I love the Tazo Awake tea. It is sooo smooth!

  6. I ADORE that striking color combo, Mary! Your card is so sweet. :)

  7. Fabulous use of those colors, Mary, and I love the card! What an incredible bow. So glad you are playing in our "Die Cut" challenge at Perfect Sentiments this week. Hope to see you again soon.
