Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I took my cards to the boutique that is showing and selling them for me. They are there on consignment, which is fine with me. I have so many cards and selling them is a great option for me. I should probably check into setting up an Etsy shop as well. Something to put on a to do list for me.
This evening I met my friend, Jodi for dinner at a new restaurant that opened in our area -the RumFish Beach. We had some great conversation, food and an evening out together.
We both tried Hawaiian Ono fish. It's a white, meaty fish and I had mine served with a red pepper cream sauce, fingerling potatoes and roasted cauliflower.
It was such a delicious meal and our service was wonderful. The waitress let us talk and didn't bring our bill until we asked her for it. How many restaurants do that these days?
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the Viva la verve challenges on Splitcoaststampers. This was the week 4 sketch provided by the hostess Charmaine.  
I used the Verve set "text objects" and stamped the sentiment in the Verve classy label die. Stamped the boat image and then paper pieced the boat.

My background designer paper is from the SU collection "print poetry". The colors are raspberry ripple, primrose petals and summer starfruit. So that's the colors I went with for my card.

I added some texture to the bottom of my card with the Stampin-Up embossing folder "basket weave". To complete the card and sketch I added some primrose petals ribbon with a vintage brad center.
That's my card for today. Hope you are able to get some stamping time in this weekend. I am planning a stamping marathon-hopefully!!
