Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Fall weather is upon us here in Pittsburgh. We are having warm days and cool nights. Its perfect soup making weather.
So, I tried a recipe that was demonstrated at a cooking class that I took in September at the Crate in Pittsburgh. It was for cream of mushroom soup. I used crimini mushrooms, thyme, onions, chicken broth, half and half and sherry. The flavor was wonderful. It's a keeper recipe for me. I took some over to my daughter-in-law and she really liked it as well. My next soup will be a butternut squash apple soup.
Now onto my card for today. This is another that I made for the HYCCT challenges on Splitcoaststampers. For Challenge #3 we were to look through our paper stash to find all those teeny strips that you never use and put them to use making your background for your card.
I looked in my stash and decided to use strips from the "springtime vintage" designer paper from Stampin'- Up to make my background.
The stamp image is from the Stampin'-Up set "stippled blossoms". The flowers are stamped in rose red ink. I stamped off once to get a variant in the ink shade. Fussy cut the flowers and laid them over a Memory Box die cut flourish.
My sentiment is from the Stampin-Up set "blooming with kindness". to complete this card, I added some butterflies cut with a Martha Stewart butterfly punch.
Well, it's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
