Super Hero

Hello Blogger friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Been busy the past few days getting ready for my son and his family to visit. They will be here with us for a week. My little granddaughter is excited to be coming back again for a visit. They were here in April but it was under such different circumstances.
We will be spending time with my other son and his family that live here in Pittsburgh. It will be good for all of us to be together again.
I plan on taking Phoenix Daisy to one of our local farms and hopefully to pick strawberries. We also bought her a little 2 wheeler because she has learned how to ride without training wheels. She is only 3 so I think that is impressive. Lots of other plans but I am not sure at this point how much of it we will actually do.
Now onto my card for today. I created this for the Splitcoaststampers Color Challenge #482. I was the challenge hostess and I chose a kaleidoscope of colors with basic black, white, crushed curry, strawberry slush and bermuda bay. The option was to make a father’s day or masculine card.

My card layout is the June Viva la Verve week 1 sketch. The background paper is from the Stampin-Up designer paper “kaleidoscope collection”. It’s so perfect for a masculine card.

The larger sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse set “man of the hour”. To make the “hero” word stand out, I colored with a bermuda bay marker. The Father’s day wishes sentiment is from the Verve set “strong anchor”.

The pierced middle panel of crushed curry is die cut from the MFT blueprints 3 die. My stars are what completed my card and the die is from the Verve ‘starry die”.
That's my card for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
I am attaching a video of my sweet little granddaughter. She was a flower girl in a wedding recently. I laugh every time I watch this. She was on a mission to get her rose petals thrown. Enjoy!
I am also entering:
1.  Verve Diva Dare has a "it's a man's world challenge.
2.  Cupcake Inspirations has a "for the boys" challenge.
