Pilgrim Boy

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I was up early so I thought  I would get this card posted before church today. I think we are going to spend some time with my Mother-in-law this afternoon. Usually we have her over here for dinner but this time we are going to her home. No definite plans yet but we will probably take her out to dinner.
Now onto my card for today. I just love this cute little pilgrim boy and the card size. It's 3 1/2 x 6. A size I haven't made before but will definitely make again. It was another one for the HYCCT challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
This is my card for Teresa's Stand Tall HYCCT1317 challenge. She wants us to make a tall/skinny card. Fun challenge and I had the perfect image to use.  I like the size so I will definitely will try it again.

My printed image is from Darcie's Stamps U-cuts line. They are all ready to go on a project just need to be fussy cut out. I found these at a rubber stamp show this summer in Pittsburgh.
I framed the image with a Spellbinders labels 4 die cut in soft suede.

 My background designer paper is from Stampin Up's "autumn spice" collection. I also used the Cuttlebug autumn type embossing folder. My border edge is a die from Verve-scalloped trio.

I stamped my sentiment-Verve "bountiful harvest" set on a pennant flag cut from a Spellbinders pennant die. 
Well that's it for me for this post. Time to get ready for church. So until next time.......God bless.
I am also entering:
1.  Crazy For Challenges has a let's frame it.
2.  My Sheri Crafts has a Fall/Thanksgiving challenge.


  1. He's really cute! Like how you distressed the edge of the card he is on. Really shows off the image.

  2. Hi Mary! Oh, I'm loving your sweet Thanksgiving card. Super adorable. Thanks for your sweet comment. Fran-tage is an embossing powder by Stampendous. It comes in an assorted set of 5 plastic containers. I googled it after seeing it quite a lot recently while blog hopping. I pinch some of the Fran-tage and sprinkle it onto my card piece, one edge at a time. Then use a heating tool and heat it from under the card piece until it melts. Be sure to aim the heating tool away from your finger so you won't burn them. Then heat from the top a bit to be sure it's set. Repeat on all sides. This stuff is awesome. I found them at our local craft store and on the Stampendous website. Have a wonderful week.
