You Are Such A Blessing

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's a snowy, blustery day here in Pittsburgh.
This would be the ideal time to be in some place tropical and relaxing on the beach. But, since I am not there, I am sipping on some warm tea & honey and crafting (lol)!!.

And, some good news is that the days are getting longer and the vernal equinox is only 28 days away. That's when the day and night are about equal in length. Soon the tulips will be pushing up. Can't wait to see those since hubby planted about 200 of them.

Well enough of the spring day dream and onto my card for today.

Splitcoaststampers is having a LoveFest Challenge. There are prizes to be won so jump over there and check it out. Info Here.

For this challenge, Korin (owner of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps) provided a sketch for us to use on our cards. 

For this card I used several stamps from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps. On the oval I stamped text from the Christmas Light set in crumb cake ink.
Over that I used the wildflowers set and stamped again in crumb cake ink.

My coral flowers are from the "your friendship" set. I stamped in memento tuxedo black and colored with copic markers.

My background designer paper is from the Canvas Corp. I really like the black & kraft look. The striped designer paper is calypso coral from Stampin-Up. The text on the flags is from the "your friendship" set.

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