HYCCT1423 ~friends were flowers~

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope you are all staying warm. It was cold and windy here today in Pittsburgh. But no snow like they had in the Northeast part of our state.
We are in the process of setting up one of the spare bedrooms as my stamping room. Wow so much work. We had our desktop computer in another bedroom and that had to be moved. That bedroom is in the process of being painted. I feel like my upstairs is a total mess. We have stuff in all 4 bedrooms. I don't like the disorder so hopefully we will have some of this straightened out soon.
I have a temporary setup in my new stamp room. Meaning that I put a portable table up there and I made a card in the room the other day. Although all my supplies are done in our basement on shelves. So I now walk down 2 flights of stairs to get what I need. The exercise is good. But it will be nice to have everything in one place when I create.
I have to move on to my card for today. Just thinking and talking about all that has to be done can get overwhelming. This one I created for the HYCCTT1423 challenge. Debbi is our hostess and she wants us to use tissue paper on our card.

I made a tissue flower with the Stampin-Up scallop punch and the beautiful blue tissue came from a Verve order. My products were wrapped in it.

Cardstock and designer paper are all Stampin-Up. Designer Paper is from the "all abloom" collection. My paper bow is a die made from the Blueprints 3 collection from MFT. The doily is also a die from MFT.

Sentiment is from the Verve set "dream big". I stamped in strawberry slush ink. To complete my card I added a butterfly made wit ha Martha Stewart punch.
That's my card for today. It's late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.....God bless.
