~Coral Thanks~

Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I made it back safely from San Francisco. I was gone between vacation and then off to take care of my granddaughter for almost the month of August. It is good to be back home and sleeping in my own bed.
The flight home got a bit crazy. My first flight was delayed and that would have me missing my connection so I was rescheduled for another flight. The 2nd flight was all boarded and then the captain announced the aircraft was being taken out of service. There was a problem with the vacuum system in the lav. 
Since I had to connect to get back to Pittsburgh, I was re-scheduled for the next morning to fly out. Phoenix Daisy was glad to have me back. We played until her bedtime.
I am still adjusting to the time change but I will be fine in a few days. Now it's time to catch up on harvesting our garden crop and other house stuff.
But for now, I am going to catch up on my blog posts. So onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #493 on Splitcoaststampers. Becky is our hostess this week and she chose the trio of old olive, calypso coral and lost lagoon. The option this week is to use something recycled.
I  used the Stampin-Up stamp set 'language of friendship". My flowers are stamped in lost lagoon and fussy cut. I layered each flower several times for added dimension.

The leaves are die cut with a Verve die. This is where I used the shampoo box. I also used the recycled box to cut my "thanks" word with a Taylored Expressions die.

My background paper is from the Stampin-Up collections -"I am me" and Epic day this and that". The coral ribbon is also from Stampin-Up.

My butterfly is cut with a die from Elizabeth Crafts.  I picked it up earlier this summer at a local rubber stamp show.  The center circles are cut with a Spellbinders scallop circle and an MFT die.

Well that's my card for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time......God bless.


  1. What a lovely card for today's color challenge at Splitcoaststampers!

  2. Such a pretty card, Mary. Coral is one of my favorite colors. What a great way to recycle the shampoo box. I guess we crafters should just keep everything because we never know when it will be handy.

    So happy you got to stay with your granddaughter. I'm sure it was a fun, sweet time.

  3. Pretty card, Mary! I like those detailed flowers. Glad you are home safe and sound. Flight delays are so frustrating but better to be safe.

  4. A cute card, Mary! Butterflies and polka dots exude happiness! I'm glad you arrived home safe and sound :)

  5. Beautiful card Mary! I love the dps combined with the pretty flowers and butterfly :) A happy card!

  6. Oh, this is soooo pretty! Love the butterfly!
