Hoppy Easter

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today seemed to have a bit of a hectic pace once it got rolling. That doesn't seem to matter to me on Tuesdays because I get to see my grandsons.

And also, I make it a point to start my day by reading my bible. It makes a big difference in my day.

I am reading through the bible on a one year plan. I have a version where you do an old testament reading, a new testament reading and then a psalm and a proverb. And, at the end of the year you will have completed the entire bible.

 It's a great way to read the scriptures. Here is the version I have if any of you are interested.  They are available at most Christian bookstores.

Now onto my card for today. I made another Easter card and you may think these are unusual colors but there is a method to my madness (lol)!!

I mentioned previously that Splitcoaststampers is having a LoveFest Challenge 2013. This one was hosted by The Cat's Pajamas and is an inspiration challenge. This is the picture we were to use to create our card.

My card is using The Cat's Pajamas set "sugar, sugar". Stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I did a modified chalkboard technique on this circle. Also on this circle I used the out of box technique to cut the circle. Colored basket & eggs with a prismacolor pencil in canary yellow.

Circles are cut using Spellbinders circle dies and designer paper from The Paper Patch and Stampin-Up.

I stamped my sentiment from the same TCP set and added some black rick rack to finish my card. And that's it for me today. So until next time..........God bless.

Additional challenges:
1.  SCS Technique challenge #418 wants us to use circles.
2.  MojoMonday 281 sketch. 
3.  Oldie But Goodie Challenge is to use bright colors. My black dotted paper is 3 yrs old, My spellbinders circle die is 3-4 yrs old. The rick rack is 1 year old.
4.  Cards In Envy wants us to use polka dots and has to be flat for mailing.
