Happy Saturday Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit The Charmed Life Blog. It's a holiday weekend here in the US.
We are having my son and family over tomorrow for a cookout. Don't know how much time we will be outside because its going to be 87° with high humidity. But being together as family will be so nice.
For today, I have a couple of hours work left with the wedding invitations I am working on. They will be ready for mailing on Tuesday morning. I will post photos of them at another time.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #546 on Splitcoaststampers. Peggy is our hostess and she chose rich razzleberry, cucumber crush and tangelo twist for her color palette.
rich razzleberry, cucumber crush, tangelo twist
I decided to make a kid's card with these colors. I will need birthday cards throughout the school year for our pre-school kiddos. This one will be perfect for a boy.

Saw some robot cards on Pinterest the other day and thought I would give it a try. I really like how it turned out. Used lots of Stampin'-Up punches and a Spellbinders die.

Robot body and head - Spellbinders square dies
Legs and arms - Stampin'-Up word window punch
Circles on body- 1 ¼" and 1" circle punches
Circles on legs- ½" circle punch
Circles at shoulders- ¾" circle punch- cut in half
Hands ¾" circle punch and cut into with a ½" circle punch
Eyes - used owl builder punch eyes
Mouth - ½" circle punch
Ears - owl builder punch
Feet - 3/4" circle punch - cut in half

On my background I used the Stampin'-Up chevron embossing folder. The sentiment is from the Stampin-Up "just sayin" set.

That's my card for today. We are going out to look at appliances. Lots of Labor Day weekend sales and we are beginning the process for our kitchen update. so until next time.......God bless.
