featured stamper card

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog. We had a great service at church today. Our pastor was away and a guest speaker  filled in for him.

Pastor Brent did a great job and I so enjoyed his message. He covered a lot but one thing he did say that stuck with me was how he reads his bible daily. He has a 90 day version and by reading 12 pages a day he completes the entire bible in 90 days.

He said that it energizes him much the same as a runner gets an endorphin rush when exercising. I was so impressed by this. Imagine reading 12 pages of the bible daily and being exhilarated  for an extended period.!!

This afternoon I attended a baby shower. The twin girls are born and were in attendance at the shower. They received such sweet outfits. The food was delicious and the camaraderie was great.

So that was my day. Hope yours was a good one as well.

My card for today was created for the featured stamper challenge on splitcoaststampers. This week the honors went to a great stamper, Irene aka Dandi93. I am familiar with her work and she is a talented stamper.

So the idea is to look through her gallery and pick a card that you want to recreate in your own style. You have to change at least 2 things on the card. I chose her cute "turtle card" as my inspiration.

I decided to keep my card on the simple side. I used a turtle die-cut turtle from we r memory keepers for my main image. The faux button is made from a Sizzix die. I used the Stampin-Up top-note die and that completed my card.

Time to close this post. I want to watch the 8 part mini-series that is showing on the Reelz channel. It's on the Kennedy family. So until next time.......
