Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's summertime and the livin' is easy. We are having some hot and humid weather here in Pittsburgh. Just perfect for giving the flower and vegetable gardens the jump start they need to move from spring to summer.
My hubby has been so busy planting and replanting his gardens. I just love how our yard looks. He works so hard to get it just right. I am so impressed when I ask the name of a plant that he knows every one of them. I need to take some photos and put them on the blog. That sounds like a good project for this weekend.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for my Friday post on the Great Impressions Stamps blog. I just love this bike image. It reminds me of a trip to the nursery and returning with some wonderful finds.
The image is from the Great Impressions Stamps "bicycle with flowers" - G481.
I stamped the image in Memento tuxedo black ink and colored with melon mambo, bashful blue and lucky limeade inks and a blender pen. I cut it out and layered over a panel of melon mambo cardstock.
The sentiment is a new Great Impressions Stamps "for friends" B233. The designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "cheerful treat" collection. I am slowly using up all this retired paper.
My layout is this week's Sweet Sunday sketch #185.
I completed the card using a Martha Stewart daisy edge punch and added a bow with a brad center.
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.........God bless.
