Sweet Friend (Shaving Cream Technique)

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog.

It's a chilly November day here in Pittsburgh. It was also my pre-school day.
We weren't able to take the kids outside because of the cold. Most of them are coughing and have runny noses. I am loading up on my Vitamin C so I don't get anything that they have (lol)!

 We are already making plans for the Thanksgiving Feast we will be having in Pre-School. The kids get to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal but instead of Turkey they have chicken nuggets. It's always a fun day for them.

It's also time for me to begin thinking about my own Thanksgiving meal. We will be hosting a dinner at our home and my in-laws will be coming. My son and his family split the holiday between us and my daughter-in-laws family. So this year they will spend it with them.

I usually keep my menu the same. Tradition goes a long way with me. I like having my menu set and using my tried and true recipes.

So now onto my card for today. This one I created for a challenge over on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use the shaving cream technique for our background.

Into my shaving cream, I added Stampin'-Up melon mambo, pumpkin pie and old olive re-inkers. Squished the paper into the shaving cream, wiped it off and this background was produced. Here is a link to a tutorial that gives more details on how to work this technique.

I layered the background on melon mambo cardstock that was cut with the Locking Loops die from Spellbinders. The Birdhouse, vine and hello dies are from CottageCutz.

I finished off my card with my sentiment. Well that's it for me for this post. Until next time.........God bless.
