Harvest Blessings

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We had a beautiful summer weekend here in Pittsburgh. Lots of sunshine and perfect temps-required no air-condition.
Friday night we celebrated my daughter-in-laws birthday. Saturday nothing special but we did have dinner on the deck. Something that we don't do often enough. Sunday was church and then my hubby went to help his sister with her yard work. So that left me with time to craft.
I decided to make some cards for the Viva la Verve August sketch challenge.
There are 4 sketches and they need to be completed by this Thursday. I managed to get 2 finished today. This is the week 1 sketch                                                  

My card is a 4 1/2" square and I decided to go with a Thanksgiving theme. I used some old Stampin-Up designer paper from the "autumn traditions" collection.

My sunflower is a die from Cheery Lynn Designs. The sentiment and leaf image is from the Verve set " bountiful harvest".  The flag is cut from the MFT flag stax die. I put it through the die twice to cut a flag on both ends.
Well that's my card for today. It's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life land for another day. So until next time .........God Bless
