Hello Blogger Friends and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. It's the 16th day of January already and the start of a holiday weekend here in the USA.
It's also football playoff weekend and our Pittsburgh Steelers are in round 2 this weekend. We play the Denver Broncos at their stadium. We will be going to my son's home to watch the game. Although there is some snow expected, I don't think it will be much to hinder driving.
Yesterday I made a major dent in getting the Christmas decorations taken down, packed and put away. It's such a tedious process and I was at it for well over 6 hours before I lost my energy. I am still battling the remnants of a cold as is my hubby.
I am thinking of cutting back some for next year. And, anything I didn't use this year I packed in a box to send off to the local thrift store. January is always a good time to declutter and organize. I will be at our closets organization next. I started all of that last year and they are in fairly good shape. Just need some minor touches and a few bigger storage containers especially the linen closet.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #565 on Splitcoaststampers. Barbara was our hostess and she chose black, white and red as her color trio.
When she chose her colors I immediately thought of a Valentine card. So that's the direction I went on my first sample. I had this card pinned on one of my Pinterest boards so I used it as inspiration.
My background embossing is done with the hearts embossing folder from Darice. The designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "timeless elegance" collection. I used a Stampin'-Up border punch on this panel.
The 2 larger hearts are dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and the "love you" words a die from Impression Obsession. The smaller hearts are also from the same IO die.
That's my sample for today and now I have one Valentine card for my stash. I send a few of them so I need to get busy. It will be hear before you know it. well, time to get back to my Christmas put away. So until next time......God bless.
Paper: black, real red, whisper white, timeless elegance dsp
Paper Size: A2
Accessories: two of hearts (cheery lynn designs), love you heart (Impression Obsession), border punch (stampin-Up), hearts ef (Darice)
