Tangerine Birthday

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Doing a quick post today before I leave to pick Ethan (youngest grandson) up at school. His brothers will either be home or at basketball practice.

Tuesday is my day with the grandkids. Great conversations and discussions, homework, after school snacks, dropping off or picking up from basketball practice it's all part of this day. It's precious time that I wouldn't trade for anything because there is nothing like building memories.

Kids grow up so fast. So if you have little ones cherish them. They don't stay that way forever.

My card for today is a bright one for sure. I made it a birthday card because my stash is running low.

The colors for this card came from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #413.
Vicki was the hostess and she chose tangerine tango, lucky limeade and white.

The layout is from the Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge #423.

My background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up "print poetry" collection and the lucky limeade paper is from the "cheerful treat" collection.

My image is from the "fresh vintage" set. Stamped in versamark and then heat embossed in white.
I added some tangerine tango ribbon and some white funky ribbon I found in my stash.

The birthday sentiment is from the MFP set "island life". Well that's it for me today. So until next time.........God bless.
