Valentine -XOXO-

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Wow- quite a busy day for me. I am just getting to sit and relax for a minute and its 10:00 pm. I started my day early this morning at pre-school. I volunteer there 2 days a week. I really am enjoying myself and the children are so sweet.  We have 9 in our class-2 girls and 7 boys. The boys are so energetic (lol)!!
After class, I had a hair appointment-time for a cut and color. Then off to pick up Ethan (my youngest grandson) at school.
Tuesdays are my day to spend with my grandsons. Ethan had indoor baseball practice and then off to basketball practice. My other 2 grandsons had basketball games so the parents went there.
Yikes lots or running around , but again I love being with them and helping out with all the activities. So at 8:10 this evening, I began my 50 minute drive from my son's home. Once I finally arrived home, I had a few things to straighten up and put away before I sat down to watch my Person of Interest show.
Now that you have the run down on my day, it's on to the card I am posting. This is another sample for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #460.  This is another card I made for Becky's CC460. Colors are rich razzleberry, island indigo and night of navy. Dessert option is splatters.

On this card I accented the rich razzleberry and made a non-traditional color valentine card. My image is a stamp from Great Impressions. I stamped on watercolor paper and colored with Stampin-Up markers and blending pens. On the large heart with bow, and also the jar lid I paper pieced.
 The "xoxo" is from the Stampin-Up circle thinlits die. Used the Stampin-Up "gorgeous grunge" set to stamp my background splatters. On this panel I used a border punch from Fiskars. The white panel is using the Stampin-Up "adorning accents" embossing folder.

My layout is last week's MojoMonday #327 sketch.

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