~Hugs From Afar~

Hello Blogger Friends!!! Thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by and visit the Charmed Life Blog.
We woke to some snow this morning. Not much but it looked so pretty on the bare tree branches. We are expecting more overnight and tomorrow. We have tickets for the University of Pittsburgh basketball game tomorrow afternoon.  So hopefully we don't get too much.
This afternoon we went to watch our grandsons play basketball. Both of them won their games. It was a great family day. The day went by too quickly though. But, it was one of those days that you wouldn't trade for anything.
Now onto my card for today. This is another sample that I created for the Color Challenge #514 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she chose the color palette of pacific point, marina mist and crisp cantaloupe.
pacific point, marina mist and crisp cantaloupe

On this card I created a little outdoor scene with dies. The houses are created with a Cheery Lynn Designs die- winter village. The stitched hillside is cut in marina mist with a new die that I just purchased from Lawn Fawn.

My plane is a die from Impression Obsession. Sentiment is a free stamp I received with a Verve order.
I decided to stamp my clouds instead of using a die cut. That worked better and didn't interfere with the plane die and banner.
The "hello" word is another die from MFT. And, that completes this card and my post. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time........God bless.
