Hello Blogger Friends and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's been a week since I posted here and for good reason. I had to take down all my Christmas decorations and pack them and put them away. It's a 4 day process for me. But it's all done for another year.
Then I had to clean the house to get ready for our weekend guest. A friend of ours came up from Orlando for some business meetings and he is staying with us until Monday night.
I am still in the process of setting up my new stamping room so two of our bedrooms are in a state of disarray. I have all kinds of supplies everywhere. So Mike is staying in our newly decorated bedroom that we finished for our 4 year old granddaughter Phoenix Daisy.
I just shut the doors to the 2 other bedrooms and told him that they are off limits because of the project that I am in the middle of completing. He is a guy so he just laughed. He didn't really care (lol)!!
Now onto today's card. This one I made for the color challenge #513 on Splitcoaststampers. I was the hostess and I chose basic gray, Bermuda bay and strawberry slush as our color palette. The option was something new. I used some new designer paper on my card.

I like using non-traditional colors for valentine’s cards so that is where I went with these colors. I had some basic ideas for the card elements and I just needed the right layout. So, I decided on this sketch from the November viva la verve challenges.
I looked through my new to me Stampin-Up designer paper and chose this pattern from the “confetti celebration” collection.
The cupid die and the love word are from Impression Obression. The heart is a Spellbinders die.
Well. that's my card for today. So until next time........God bless.
