Beyond Grateful

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 and are enjoying the summer months. I can't believe that we are halfway through August already. The summer is going by way to quickly for me. I love the long, hot days of summer and sitting out on our deck at night. We had dinner on the deck on Friday night and then lingered for a bit to listen to the crickets and locusts singing away. 

Today my grandson is here to spend the night. He and my hubby went golfing this morning and I have a few minutes to get this Blog post done before they return. We always enjoy the visits and especially that they want to spend the night.

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge #898 on Splitcoaststampers. Our colors were granny apple green, mango melody and coastal cabana.

I started my card by sponging around the left edge of the white panel with coastal cabana ink. I used the forever fern stamp set and stamped in mango melody, granny apple green and coastal cabana inks.

After I stamped in the mango color, it seemed to washed out so I decided to stamp and then die cut a few of the leaves. It added some interest and more color to the card.

My sentiment is from the Stampin' Up "charming sentiments" set. It has a coordinating die. Scattered a few coastal cabana enamel dots and my card is finished.

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