Never Give Up

Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's official and on the calendar-summer has arrived. I am looking forward to the long, warm and sunny days ahead.

Also, This weekend we have a treat in the sky with a beautiful full moon. I guess it's called a "supermoon". It will be the biggest, brightest and fullest moon of 2013.
So if the weather is cooperating in your area, make sure you take a peek. I love it when we have a full moon. It really lights up my back yard and also our bedroom.

Anyway, onto my card for today. It's my day to post on The Great Impressions Stamps Blog. Just part of my design team duties. Which will be coming to and end on June 30th. It was 10 great months working with the team and the company.

The stamps I used on this card are "tricycle E795" and the sentiment is "never give up A145".  I think this is a great card to encourage someone who needs a lift. I created a little mini scene by adding some die cut clouds and grass. I also sponged in some background clouds. I colored the image with Stampin-Up markers.

My background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up collection "sycamore street". The card colors are summer starfruit, rich razzleberry and island indigo.
My card layout is from the sketch over on the Pals Paper Arts blog.

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

  1. Perfect sentiment for this image. Dust off and keep on tryin'. Oh, thanks for telling me about the supermoon. Hopefully, the clouds will clear out soon so I can see it. Happy summer!

  2. What a great image and sentiment! I love how the cloud is a little tilted, too. Looking forward to seeing the big moon. Clear skies so far!

  3. Great sketch card Mary! Love how you tilted the cloud! I noticed the moon last night when I took the puppies outside. It was beautiful!

  4. Gorgeous card, beautiful colouring and choice of DP. Hugs Bev x

  5. Mary, this is the cutest! Love the sentiment with that precious image. This is probably what would happen to me if I tried to ride a trike or bike again. Love the fun DP in the background too.
    Have a great weekend - and watch for that moon!

  6. This is beautiful, Mary! Love the colors, coloring, and details. Hope you are doing great! Did you ever finish your interior decorating?

  7. Great job with the sketch, Mary. Love the paper in the background. The colors go so well with the trike. Thanks for sharing it at the Sister Act Card Challenge Blog.

  8. Great advice on a cute card! So glad it's finally summer here in NJ. I've been getting a lot of cards done, and also time of year!

  9. Beautiful card Mary!! I love the way you did the sketch and that little bicycle image is the cutest :)

    We had such heavy cloud cover that we didn't even get a peek at the beautiful moon...
