Fathers Day

reversed the papers on this version
Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I mentioned yesterday that I returned from San Francisco with a pretty intense chest cold and congestion.
Yesterday, I went to visit the doctor because I was a bit concerned it might be pneumonia. After an exam + x-ray she ruled that out, and the diagnosis is bronchitis.
So I was sent home with an antibiotic and an oral inhalation device. I only have to use this if  I need it.  I am so looking forward to not being sick and having this congestion out of my body. Prayers are always welcomed by me.
Now onto my card for today. This is another sample I made for the color challenge #531 on Splitcoaststampers, which I hosted. I chose the color palette of  hello honey, blackberry bliss, basic gray, sahara sand, lost lagoon. The option was to use spots, dots or stripes.
I have started my Father’s Day cards, and I thought these colors would make a great masculine card. My layout is from the MFT Blueprints 18 sketches. I like the blueprints dies and MFT provides sketches to make it easier to create a card.

 When I cut the papers I decided to go ahead and make 2 cards. I just switched up the designer paper. All the dies used on this card are from MFT. The  Blueprints 18 dies were used on the designer paper, vertical strips, circles, stars and the flag pennants. The "Dad" word is the little letters dies also from MFT.

The background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up “moonlight” collection. I layered that on a blackberry bliss cardstock base. Sahara Sand is used on the 2 vertical strips and also in the circle.

The sentiment is from the Waltzingmouse set "man of the hour". Well blogger friends that's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.
