Mother's Day Blessings 2

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

It's such a beautiful, sunny and very warm day here in Pittsburgh.  We, my hubby and I, went out for a 3 mile walk this morning. I have been doing this with him at least 4-5 days a week. He goes every day. 

As we walked through our local high school grounds we saw some teachers outside with their gym classes. It was nice to see the kids back in school and life beginning to return to normal. 
On the weekends the soccer and baseball teams are having games at the high school. A year of shutdowns makes you appreciate American life as we know it. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #840. Chris was our hostess and she chose flirty flamingo, petal pink and coastal cabana for her color trio. Optional this week is stitches. I used the MFT stitched basic edges die on this card. I also subbed powder pink since I don't own the petal pink color.

I decided to go with a Mother's Day theme for my card. I need several Mother's Day cards since I send to friends and family.

I used a new to me wreath stamp set from Concord & 9th. It's one of their turnabout stamps. My teamie Barbara has used them on several occasions so I bought a couple to try them. I am hooked and I may get a few more. They give you a template to use so as you turn the stamp you can use different colors. Here is a link to their site if you want to see the turnabout in action. 

I stamped the wreath in the challenge colors and then added mossy meadow as my 4th color on this image. You turn it 4 times and add a different color on each turn.

I stamped my Mother's Day sentiment on vellum and embossed with an emerald embossing powder. It looks black in this photo but irl it's a pretty shade of green that matches well with the colors.

I finished off this card by adding coastal cabana ribbon and bow and scattering some flirty flamingo enamel dots. Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time .......God bless.
