October Birthday

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
I am back from my week in San Francisco. I was there taking care of my sweet granddaughter, Phoenix Daisy, while her Mom & Dad went away for a little alone time.
The two of us had a wonderful time together. She has 6 "babies" and we had lots of adventures with them. Each one has a name and she has given them a personality. I love the innocence. She will grow up too fast so I am treasuring these precious times.
I really missed my hubby this time around.  He stayed home because of work. My cell phone doesn't work in my son's home and this time it didn't work outside either. I guess Verizon is not the big carrier in San Francisco and maybe less cell towers? Not sure of the reason but I wasn't able to talk to my hubby only send text messages. They say love makes the heart grow fonder. I was so happy to see him today.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for one of the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges on Splitcoaststampers. Stacy was the hostess and I was one of her sample makers. If you are a fan club member on SCS, you can get all the details of her challenge here.  
For my card, I used elements from the Stampin'-Up September 2017 "layered leaves" paper pumpkin kit. For my pumpkins, I used the CottageCutz "give thanks" die. The background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "painted harvest" collection.

This is going to my friend who has an October birthday so I used the CottageCutz "calendar months" die. The October phrase is cut in Cajun craze cardstock. Scattered a few sequins to complete this card.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time...…...God bless.
card details:
Stamps: abundant blessings (Verve)  
Paper: peach parfait, cajun craze, painted harvest dsp (Stampn'-Up)  
Paper Size: A2  
Ink: cajun craze, pumpkin pie
Accessories: layered leaves paper pumpkin kit, linen thread (Stampin'-Up), calendar months, give thanks dies (CottageCutz), orange sequins (darice), flag dies (MFT)
