Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog on this Sunday in January. It was a cold day here in Pittsburgh with a bit of snow. Not much though but one of those windy and blustery days that you just want to stay inside. Which we did after church and a quick lunch at Outback.
My 5 year old granddaughter called me and we talked for about 1 1/2 hours in the afternoon. We do a video call on our I-Pads with the Apple FaceTime technology.
So we had a snack together and then played with her dolls and some other of her toys. She likes telling me "secrets" so she takes the Ipad in her bed under the covers and whispers little things. It's just too cute.
Sometimes I think I could be doing other things but I quickly put the thought away. Could anything be more important than spending time with her even if it's a video call. It's how we get to see each other regularly-several times a week. Since she has no brothers or sisters I am her playmate. My son and daughter-in-law just go about the house while she and I talk.
There will come a time when she gets involved with school or other activities and the calls may stop. So for now I just need to savor the time she wants to spend with me.
Now onto my card for today. This is another card I made for CC562. Vicki is our hostess and she chose black, silver and gold. Optional was New Years. This gave me a chance to get 3 New Years cards made for people that I didn't get a Christmas card from me. Timing is everything!!
On this card I used a new to me die from Impression Obsession. It's the city landscape layers die. The celebrate word and 2016 are dies from MFT.
The background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up collection "all is calm". It reminded me of a snowy scene in the city. I scattered a few gold sequins to complete this card.
Well that's it for me for today. So until next time .......God bless.
Paper: : black, silver, all is calm dsp (Stampin'-Up)
