Happy Saturday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had a great family time last night at my hubby's nephews home. There were 14 of us in attendance enjoying a great meal together. Lauren and Jared were such wonderful hosts. we sat outside on their newly constructed deck for the entire evening.
They grilled steak, chicken and shrimp kabobs and some delicious veggies. I brought a big tossed salad that was a hit as well. The lettuce (green leaf and red bibb) I bought at the farmer's market and was able to use my newest kitchen gadget- a salad spinner. I have always wanted one of these and finally bought one (lol).
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the Viva la Verve challenge on Splitcoaststampers. Last night when I came home, I found out I won the challenge and the prize is a $100 gift card to the Verve store. How awesome is that!! I love Verve products so spending this will be quite easy.
We had to make 4 cards using the sketches provided. I have already posted 1 of my entries here. Will show the other 2 in the coming days.
This was the sketch that was provided by Maureen.
I used some old Stampin-Up designer paper from the "porcelain prints" collection. The card colors are not quite navy and wild wasabi to coordinate with the designer paper.
My oval panels are cut from the Spellbinders die "floral ovals". I stamped my sentiment directly on my designer paper. Sentiment is from the Stampin-Up "field flowers" set.
I finished the card by die cutting flowers with a Memory Box die "chloe stem".
Well that's it for me today. Have some chores to do around the house and then get ready for a get together at a neighbor's home tonight.
So until next time.........God bless.
