~Sending Wishes~

Happy Wednesday! Hello Blogger friends and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
Today I went with my friend to our local Penney's store to look for some new curtains for my bedroom. My hubby painted it about a month ago. I have a new comforter that I bought about a year ago and never took it out of the packaging.
The room is almost getting finished. We are such procrastinators when it comes to getting things done it seems. The curtains weren't in stock so they will be delivered to my home next week. I just need to buy some new rods and my hubby will put them up. They had rods at Penny's but I thought I may be able to pick them up at Bed Bath and Beyond a little cheaper. If not, I will make a trip back to Penney's and get the ones I saw there.
Then there is still the issue of my new craft room. I am still working on getting that organized. Although I get sidetracked and would rather create than organize (lol)!!
Which was the case today when I returned from my curtain buying.
I checked out the sketch on Splitcoaststampers and decided to work on that. Allison is the hostess and she created a great layout for us this week. I like using tilted panels on a card.
I just got a box of new Stampin'-Up goodies in the mail and I decided to use some on this card.

My image panel is created with the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I stamped in crisp cantaloupe, tangerine tango and pistachio pudding. The colors in my designer paper.

The butterfly is cut with the butterfly thinlits die in tangerine tango and designer paper from the Stampin'-Up "Venetian Romance" collection. The background designer paper is from the same collection.

The smaller tilted panel that goes over the edge of the card is embossed with the Boho Chic embossing folder and a piece of designer paper from the Stampin'-Up "watercolor wonder" collection.
That's my card for today. It's getting late and time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.........God bless.
