Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog this Saturday, October 4. It is also world card making day so I hope to have a chance to make a card or 2 today.
I have been on a cooking spree lately with canning and harvesting from my garden plus using all the local produce that's available. I have been visiting the local farms as well as the farmers markets.
Our green peppers are done for this year so I had to buy a few to make stuffed pepper soup. I used green bell and yellow peppers to make this delicious soup. It's one of my husbands favorites. I really liked how this one turned out.
In fact, I went to the Farmers Market last night and bought some red and green bell peppers to make more. This time I will freeze it to enjoy later in the fall. If anyone would like the recipe I used just send me an email or a comment on this post and let me know.
Now onto my card for today. This one is a sample I made for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #497. Peggy was our hostess and she chose a lovely fall color trio with hello honey, blackberry bliss and very vanilla. Her optional item was to add splatters to your card.
|vanilla, honey, blackberry|
I went with a fall theme for my card. The background is the Cuttlebug embossing folder "autumn type". The leaves and acorns are cut with a Spellbinders die. I made a small bow with twine and taped it to my leaves.
The "hello" word is a die from MFT as is the cornstalk and arrow. My sentiment is a Great Impressions Stamp and I just used the autumn word and stamped in blackberry bliss ink.
For the splatters option, I used the Stampin-Up spritzer and attached a marker. I sprayed a few times on my card. That completed my card.
Well time to end this post. I have to get back in the kitchen because today it's more canning of tomatoes. So until next time........God bless.
