Hello Blogger Friends!! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had a bit of snow this morning. Not much just a light dusting of that really wet and heavy stuff.
It was enough to keep people away from the gym. Which was good for our exercise group. There were only 3 of us today, but we didn't have to wait in any area where we were working out.
I did not gain any weight over Christmas and I attribute it all to going to the gym 3x a week. Because I certainly had my share of sweet treats over the holidays. But, its time now to get back to a more healthier eating routine. It's amazing how quick you can revert to old habits that are not healthy.
Tonight for dinner I am making some salmon, roasted vegetables and a salad. I wanted to make cauliflower but I didn't go to the store after the gym. So instead I will roast some carrots and possibly some cabbage. Roasted cabbage really brings out the sweetness especially when I brush it with coconut oil.
Now let's get onto my card for today. This is a perfect project to show on a wintry and snowy day. I made it for the Color Challenge #512 on Splitcoaststampers. Becky was our hostess and she chose blushing bride, rich razzleberry and mossy meadow as her colors. The option is to do some dry embossing.

I needed some thank you notes for some gifts I received from my Preschool kids. So I decided to do some mitten thank you cards. I ended up making 5 of these but I didn't take photos of the other 2.
My mitten is a die from Spellbinders. I cut in white and then layered rich razzleberry, blushing bride and mossy meadow card stocks on top.
To create the mitten cuffs, I used designer paper from the Stampin-Up in-color and polka dot parade collections. I used the square lattice embossing folder on 2 of the mitten cuffs.
Added some snowflakes, my thanks word and a bit of ribbon to complete my project.
The snowflakes are a punch from Marvy-Uchida and the "thanks word" is a die from Taylored Expressions.
I really like how these turned out. So cute to give to a 3 year old and their family. Well that's it for me for today. So until next time........God bless.
