Warm Winter Birthday Wishes

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

It's been a snowy and cold week here in Pittsburgh. One of those weeks where comfort type food is always welcome. I made 2 new soup recipes this past week. Wild Rice and Corn Chowder and both of them were delicious. They are definitely on my keeper list. 

I also roasted a big batch of veggies- cauliflower-broccoli-butternut squash. We really enjoyed those along with a salad. Roasting brings out such flavor in veggies. I don't have any plans for dinner tonight. We have lots of leftovers in the fridge and that might be what we will eat. We don't mind eating leftovers. In fact, when I cook, I always make more than what we will eat to enjoy the leftovers.  

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my niece who celebrated her birthday yesterday. I used a new die -Winter Mouse by Woodstove die to create a warm and cozy inside scene. I love the window and snow covered limbs to reflect that it's snowy and cold outside. 

I used the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #877. Chris was the hostess, and we were to use granny apple green, mango melody and melon mambo for our color trio. And optional was to use any blue.
melon mambo, mango melody, granny apple green

The mouse, chair, blanket coffee cup & teapot are cut in the challenge colors. The wallpaper background is from Stampin'-Up "floral boutique" designer paper collection. I thought it worked perfectly for wallpaper and the striped for a clapboard effect. 

I used another CottageCutz die for the "warm" phrase. My sentiment is an MFT stamp set- bitty birthday wishes.

Well, that's my card for today. So until next time.......God bless.
