You're a Great Reason to Celebrate

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

I am trying to make the best of the current situation with the pandemic. Our Preschool will be closed until April 14 at least. So with no class prep, I am using the time to get things caught up around my home.

I am always scurrying this time of year to get everything ready for income tax filing. Now the deadline has been pushed back 3 months but I don't intend to wait that long. I am almost caught up with everything from 2019 and will be ready to get the taxes done.

I have been crafting but not as much as I would like. There are other things that have to take priority right now. But, being in my craft room is relaxing and takes my mind off what's happening in the world.

So here are some details on this card. I created it for color challenge #780 on Splitcoaststampers. Chris was the hostess and she chose rich razzleberry, old olive and pretty peacock for her color trio.
rich razzleberry, pretty peacock, old olive
When Chris picked these colors I didn't have an idea in mind for my card. Then what shows up in my mailbox but my Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin kit, and Chris' colors were in there. Whoo-hoo!
The bold floral image and leaves are a die cut from the kit. The white scalloped background came with some old olive ink smudges and splatters already on it.
I stamped my sentiment in pretty peacock ink to cover that color. And, to finish off the card, I scattered a few rich razzleberry enamel dots. They are from my stash.

Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time...…..God bless.
