~Blossom Get Well~

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We have our youngest Grandson (Ethan) staying with us for a few days.
It's been a great time having him here. He played baseball with his Pap, worked outside, swam in the pool and last night we had a fire pit in the backyard and made s'mores. They were delicious and such a relaxing time of just talking and being together. Here is a photo of Ethan and my hubby.
Fire pit s'mores time

Now onto my card for today. I really like the Stampin-Up set "blooming with kindness". I needed a get well card for a friend who just had an operation. So when I saw this beauty made with this set on Pinterest, I knew I had to case it.

I changed a few things to make the card my own. I used sketch #491 from Splitcoaststampers for my card layout.

I stamped my flower images  directly on my designer paper. The paper is from Stampin-Up's "watercolor wonder" collection.

I stamped the bottom flower in daffodil delight. The top left flower in tangerine tango and stamped off once before stamping on the dsp.
On the bold image I stamped first with daffodil delight and again stamped off. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to offset the send image slightly and used tangerine tango ink.

The sentiment is from the Stampin-Up "perfectly penned" set. I stamped in cajun craze ink.
To finish my card I used some tangerine tango and daffodil delight ribbon. My butterfly is a Cheery Lynn Designs die.

Well, time for me to close this post. Ethan will be getting up soon and I want to enjoy the day with him before my daughter-in-law comes to pick him up. So until next time.......God bless.
