HYCCT1507 ~Happy Thoughts~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.
It's another beautiful fall day here in Pittsburgh.
I am typing this post this Thursday morning before pre-school. Seeing the sun shining this early makes me happy. The kids will be able to go outside and play during their little morning break. It's good for them to work off some energy and enjoy the fall morning as well as for myself and the other teacher. It rejuvenates us to be outside.
Even though it's only a 2 hour class we are moving for the entire time with a lesson or an activity or getting prepared for the activity. I love it though. It is rewarding to me to know that I am investing in the lives of these kids.
I also have been working furiously to get all my cards finished for the Hope You Can Cling To Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. There are 40 challenges in all. I have made 36 cards so far.
I need to really think and get creative for these remaining ones. Don't know how much time I will have today because I pick my grandson up after he is finished with school. But, I have until Saturday at noon to have them finished and uploaded.
So onto this card I made for challenge 7. Jacqueline is our hostess and she wants us to use the letters T-R-A-S-H and include elements in our card.
T = twine, triangles and tip top taupe ink
R = repeat images with triangles
A = acrylic button
S = sentiment
H = Happy word

To create my card I used elements from the June 2015 Paper Pumpkin Kit from Stampin'-Up. I really like getting these kits each month and they have helped me complete several of my challenge cards.
The little triangles are die-cut pieces from the kit and I arranged them in this pattern on my card. I used this card I saw on Pinterest for inspiration. I used a different sentiment so as not to make it totally the same. 

Well, my friends that's it for this post. Time to jump in the shower and get ready for pre-school. Hope your day is blessed and that you are able to do something rewarding as well.
Until next time.........
