HYCCT01C Challenge

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope your Sunday went well and you had an opportunity to kick back and relax some.
We went to watch our youngest grandson (Ethan) play football last night. He ended up at Children's Hospital with a concussion. He had a baseline done previously and my daughter-in-law will have to take him to the concussion center this week to find out what his limitations will be.
He had a headache today and his head hurt after talking on the phone. My hubby and I don't like these young boys playing football for this very reason. But, we are not the ones making decisions where our grandsons are concerned.
So if you could add Ethan to your prayer list, it would be greatly appreciated.
Now, onto my card for today. This one I made for the first day Hope You Can Cling to Challenge 01C on Splitcoaststampers. Dini was our hostess and she wanted us to use something on our card that we could hold onto - a handle.
For my card I used the vintage big wheel image from Great Impressions Stamps. The sentiments are also from Great Impressions. 
The card layout was last weeks Deconstructed sketch #171.
The background paper is from Stampin-Up's "sweet taffy" collection. The bottom sentiment is stamped on turquoise card stock and cut with the MFT bracket die.
That's my card for today. It's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
