JoyFul Wishes

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
Today was my day to go and spend a few hours with the little boy from my Pre-School class afflicted with the AFM virus. Here is a link to read more. It's a Go Fund Me page BUT it gives the complete story of what happened to Sam. That's the reason I linked there.
I have been going over once a week to give Stephanie a little break. I stay about 2 hours or more and play with Sam and his brother Jack. I try and take something with me for us to work on together.
Today I took a dinosaur book with stickers and we worked on it for a little and then the play time changed direction. We played with their stuffed animal puppies and they got hurt and had to go to the Vet. I was the Dr and they each took a turn being my assistant and the dog owner. It was a fun time with them and they seem to love the play time.
Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #747 on Splitcoaststampers. Karen was the hostess and she chose soft seafoam, very vanilla and rococo rose for her color trio. Optional was to use pearls. It is also a Christmas in July theme.
I like trying to create a Christmas card with non-traditional colors. It always presents a challenge. For this card I used a vine wreath die. The berries are cut in rococo rose as are my little mittens.

The soft seafoam background designer paper is from the Stampin'-Up "tranquil textures" collection. The sentiment is stamped in rococo rose.

I finished off my card by adding 3 snowflakes cut in soft seafoam. I added pearls to the centers to cover the optional twist.
Well, that's it for me for this post. So until next time...…..God bless.
