Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. I have just returned from my trip to San Francisco. Now I just have to get my body adjusted to East Coast time again.
I was there taking care of my granddaughter while her parents went away for a little r & r. We had a wonderful time together and that little ball of energy just wore me out. But we always make memories together that will be shared over and over again.
She loves to draw and color so I put together a box of stuff for her that included stamps, ink, stickers and cardstock. Cleaned out some of my stash for her and she loved it. I bought some kids washable ink for her. She stamped a few cards while we there. She even colored the images that she stamped. It will be a fun activity for her and my daughter-in-law.
Now onto my card for today. this one I made for the color challenge #550 on Splitcoaststampers. Vicki was our hostess and she chose marina mist, soft sky and daffodil delight for her color palette. Our option was to make a background sky.
soft sky, marina mist, daffodil delight
I made this as a card of encouragement. You never know when you need one and I don't have any on hand. Little did I know that I would be sending this to my bff as she was just diagnosed with breast cancer. That bit of shocking news came to me just yesterday.
I used this card from one of my Pinterest boards as inspiration to create my card. Love all the card ideas that are pinned there on the site.
My background is sponged with the MFT stencil sunray die. The sun and clouds are also dies from MFT.
My sunshine word is part of the sunshine frame die from Simon Says Stamp. I cut in soft sky and then slightly offset it with marina mist. The "sending you" sentiment is part of a stamp from Great Impressions.
Well that's my card for today. So until next time........God bless.
