HYCCT1404 ~new day~

Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I can't believe how quickly October is moving along. I haven't even put my fall decorations out yet. The inside ones I mean.
Between pre-school, the gym, cooking classes and other activities in October, my days have been full.  I am determined by Saturday that I will have the decorations up, laundry finished and house cleaned.
We are in the process of painting a bedroom so the stuff from that room is in other rooms. That makes things seem like they are in disarray, to me anyway.
Today, I am going to another cooking class at the Crate in Pittsburgh. Not sure if I would have chosen this on my own but some friends wanted me to attend with them. So I wanted to get my blog post finished before I leave.
So onto my card for today. This one I made for the HYCCT challenge #4. Sabrina was our hostess and she wants us to hold it together without your usual resources. No foam dots, or other tape, no wet glues or Glossy Accents, no glue gun...
You can use things like brads, eyelets, stitching (machine or hand), staples etc.
This was a bit of a challenge since I made a multi-layered card using the deconstructed sketch #172. But I managed with a brad and some staples.

My card background is designer paper from the "good morning sunshine" collection by Stampin-Up. I cut this panel with the MFT blueprints #15 die. The sun is also a MFT die as is the flag.

My sentiment is from the MFT clearly sentimental line "new beginnings". I held the rectangle panel together with a flower brad. The sun and flag are held together with staples. I colored them with a pumpkin blendabilities marker.
That's my card for today. Tiem to get ready to leave for my cooking class. I will let you know how it went tomorrow. Until next time........God bless.
