Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today was my fill-in day at Pre-School. Our other aide had a family emergency so I filled in for her.
We have a new girl in class so I like being there for both Tuesday and Thursday classes so she will get to know me. Today during our story time she wanted me to hold her so I would say that we are off to a good start.
Although 2 of the other kids wanted me to hold them as well. So I had 2 on my lap and one on the floor in front of me. I have a good relationship with all 10 of my students. They love me and I love them.
It's a tiring 2 hours but so worth my time. I spent 30 years investing my life in corporate America and now I am investing myself into the lives of these precious children. A much better choice I would say!!!
Now onto the card I created. This one I made for the Color Challenge #514 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki is our hostess and she chose an interesting color palette of marina mist, pacific point and crisp cantaloupe. Our option was to emboss.
|pacific point, marina mist and crisp cantaloupe|
I don't often say I have trouble with the challenge colors but these ones gave me fits. The problem was I wanted to give equal weight to the cantaloupe. When I downplayed the color my card came together quickly. I needed a masculine birthday card so downplaying the cantaloupe color was a good idea.
All the die cuts on my card from MFT. I just purchased the balloon stamps and dies as well as the celebrate dies. I die cut some sequins in cantaloupe and scattered them on the panel. I cut the "celebrate" word in marina mist and overlaid with the pacific point.
The background designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "high tide" collection. My panels are cut and embossed with the Spellbinders Matting Basics A&B. So I covered our option as well.
Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.........God bless.
