May Good Things Grow

Hello Blogger Friends Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. Hope you all had a great weekend.  

We just did our usual things - morning 3 mile walk and then hubby was in his gardens all day. Saturday is usually my cleaning day so I did that. Then on Sunday we went to church. It was a great service. We had an evangelist who had just come back from Africa preaching. 

Then on Sunday night we had our prayer meeting here in our home. There are 6 couples and a couple of singles who join us every other week. We are praying for America and for issues in our local community.  If you would like us to pray for you just send me an email. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #844 on Splitcoaststampers. LeAnn was our hostess and she chose so saffron, pool party and mint macaron for her color trio. Option was to use dots. I did use one faceted enamel dot in the center of my flower.

For this card I used the contents of the March 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit - No Matter the Weather- from Stampin'-Up. The background was in the kit as were the so saffron rain boots. These kits are great because they give you all that you need to create a card including the adhesive. If you would like to order a kit or any other Stampin'-Up merchandise, I have a friend who is just starting out as a demonstrator and could use some customers. Here is a link to her Stampin'-Up site. 

I cut some flowers from the Spring Teacup Bouquet die by CottageCutz. I used so saffron cardstock then sponged with so saffron and fossilized amber ink to get a deeper color shade. The leaves are cut in mint macaron and then sponged with the same ink to get a deeper color.

The sentiment is from another Paper Pumpkin kit  - "may good things grow". I stamped in basic gray ink and my card is finished. That's it for me for this post. So until next time.......God bless.
