Masculine Card

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
Don't know if  I mentioned before that my hubby planted a vegetable garden this year. We usually have just tomatoes. But this year he planted lettuce, green onions, green and hot peppers, zucchini and cucumbers. Plus all our usual herbs.
We have been getting lettuce for about a month now. I just love going to the garden and picking it for our salad.
Yesterday, was our first ripe zucchini and tomato. I was busy last night searching online for a recipe for zucchini. I just wanted to try something a little different. The flowers in the background are mini dahlias. We have them on the table on our deck.
Now onto my card for today.  My card is using 2 Stampin-Up sets- "Just Sayin' and "gorgeous grunge". I cut the sentiment from the bubble framelits die. It is an accompaniment to the "just sayin' stamp set.

I used Stampin-Up reftro fresh designer paper and the MFT flag stax dies to cut my flags. The arrow is cut with another MFT die in Recollections cork paper.

To complete my card I used some May Arts chevron ribbon.
My card inspiration came from this one I saw on Pinterest by Mary Brown aka StamperCamper. Changed it a bit to make it my own.
Well that's it for me for today. Time to head over to my son's home for the day. So until next time.......God bless.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: just sayin', gorgeous grunge (Stampin-Up) 
Paper: crumb cake, coastal cabana retro fresh dsp 
Ink: early espresso 
Accessories: bubbles framelits (stampin-up), MFT flag stax die & lead the way dies, Recollections cork paper
I am also entering:
1.  SCS WT486  - Michelle wanted us to use balloons. I used speech bubbles. 
2.  613 Avenue Create is anything goes.
3.  CAS on Sunday has a one layer challenge.


  1. So pretty and colorful, Mary. I really like the speech bubble. I have to get some of those on order.
    I would love to have a place to grow tomatoes. Our back yard is too shady.
    Do you ever make zucchini bread? My mother's friend used to make it all the time and always carry a loaf to her. It was so yummy.
    I love little, green onions and lettuce from the garden. You are fortunate to have these yummies.

  2. Oh, fresh vegetables are wonderful! Hope you have a great crop. This is my favorite thing to do with zucchini from SmittenKitchen http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2007/08/my-favorite-side-dish/ Wonderful masculine card!

  3. Beautiful, Mary! Love the colors and patterns! My dh does a garden, too! We have not had any luck with zucchini. Yours looks amazing! Slicing lengthwise and adding some olive oil, salt and pepper, and popping on the grill is fast and delicious. Of course, we have to buy our zucchinis at market.

  4. Super cool card Mary. I love the speech bubble (I have to ink up mine)... and the papers.

  5. Super cool card, Mary! Love the fun speech bubble & banners!

  6. I love your fun card and your vegetables look wonderful! Nothing better than fresh tomatoes!
