A Succulent Thank You

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

I had a busy day in my kitchen making pesto. We had our first basil harvest so I turned that into pesto. The basil was enough to make one batch and that's an 8 oz cup. But when I take it from the freezer, I will add the parmesan cheese and more olive oil so I will have enough to use it for a couple of meals. My hubby also cut his garlic scapes and I turned that into pesto. I have more to make but I ran out of lemon, and I use that in the garlic scape pesto. 

In case you are wondering what garlic scapes are, we didn't know either until my hubby started planting garlic. They are the long slender flower stems that grow from the top of the garlic bulb. They need to be cut so the bulb will get larger. The garlic bulbs will be harvested in late July or early August. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for a friend who needed some thank you cards. I made her 10 of them but this was the only one I took a photo of. Not sure why I didn't photo all the others?

I used the contents of the February 2019 Stampin'-Up Paper Pumpkin Kit. The designer papers that were part of the kit were so pretty I didn't want to cover them up. So I kept the card on the CAS side. I also used the colors from the color challenge #832 on Splitcoaststampers. The colors were blackberry bliss, garden green and rich razzleberry. 
The succulent background designer paper had the colors for the challenge. My card base is rich razzleberry. The light gray layering panel is a card base from the kit.

I stamped my sentiment and added the blackberry bliss bow and this card is complete. I needed a simple thank you card and the kit worked out great.

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