Hello Blogger friends! thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. We picked our first zucchini's (we had 2) from our garden. I decided to stuff them using a recipe I found on the Martha Stewart website.
first zucchini and tomato
They were delicious. Here is a link to the recipe if you want to give them a try. When I served mine I spooned a marinara sauce over the zucchini and dusted with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. I will definitely use this recipe again since my hubby liked it as well.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for a friends birthday. I put the sentiment on the inside. But forgot to photo that- oh well next time for sure.
My card colors are from the CC485 on Splitcoaststampers. Peggy was the hostess and she chose hello honey, night of navy and sahara sand. Our dessert is texture - fibers, felt, embossing folders, mixed media etc.

My card is using a new stamp set from PaperTreyInk- "ombre builders". I die cut a tag with a Sizzix die and sahara sand cardstock and used several different patterns and stamped in night of navy ink.

My poppy flowers and sentiment are from the Verve set "poppy birthday". I stamped in night of navy on sahara sand cardstock.

I did a bit of stenciling on my backgroundg using a stencil from Plaid. I used hello honey ink for a tone on tone look. My hello word is cut in hello honey cardstock with a die from MFT - "happy hellos".

I used some cotton perle on my tag to complete my card. My card inspiration came from the PTI board on Pinterest.
Well that's it for me for today. Time to get busy with some household chores. I would rather be creating but we have a guest coming this weekend. So until next time........God bless blogger friends.
