HYCCT1416 ~thankful & grateful~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I have been absent from Charmed Life Land this week because I was frantically trying to finish the challenge cards for the HYCCT on Splitcoaststampers.
I am happy to say that I finished my last one this morning and had it posted before the 12:00 deadline. Whew!! I am in stamping mode now so time to get my Christmas cards finished. I have all the Thanksgiving cards done but not mailed yet. Hopefully I will get them out this weekend or early next week.
The two cards I am showing today are from the HYCCT1416 challenge. Paula is our hostess and she wants us to make a project without using any stamps.

I used several dies to create these cards. The flowers are the "chloe die" from Memory Box and I cut them in peach parfait and cajun craze cardstocks. The thankful and grateful dies are from PaperTrey Ink. I layered them over a strip of cajun craze cardstock cut with the MFT Blueprints 3 die.

My background embossing on the first card is a folder from Cuttlebug "autumn type". The dotted card panels are designer paper from Stampin-Up's "season of style" collection.
Well, that's it for me for today. Time to get to some household chores that were put on hold since HYCCT started. So until next time.......God bless.
card details:
Paper: early espresso, crumb cake, cajun craze, peach parfait, season of style dsp (Stampin-Up) Paper Size: A2 
Accessories: counting my blessings die (PaperTrey Ink), Blueprints 3 (MFT), Autumn Type (Cuttlebug), chloe die (Memory Box)

  1. Fabulous card Mary! Love the neutral colors with the pop of color!

  2. I love this beautiful card, Mary. I'm just wondering if I have that chloe die. It's a great one.
    Mailed my HYCCT cards already. Unfortunately, I only got, I think, twelve of them made. Maybe I can do better next year.

  3. Lovely cards. Gorgeous colour combo. Love the embossed backgrounds and great dies. Thanks for joining us at Fussy & Fancy Challenges.
