Birthday Candles

Happy Sunday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Hope your day went well wherever it took you. I started the day with church.
My Pastor's sermon today was so inspiring. He encouraged us from scripture and the book of Galatians 6:10 - "don't become weary in doing good for a the proper time we will reap a harvest if we don't give up". The key to Christianity-it's a long term investment not a short-term gain. And we need to be totally dependent on God. 
He spoke for about 40 minutes but it was one of those sermons that kept your interest. There was so much more that he spoke on and if you are interested here is a link to listen.
This afternoon I went to my grandson's football game. They lost but it was being with my family that mattered to me.
Now it's Sunday evening and I am working on my blog post and watch the QVC "Joy of Christmas". I did by a few things -gifts and some decorations for my home. I love decorating my home at the holidays and occasionally adding some new items.
Onto my card for today. This one I made for the Splitcoaststampers virtual stamping night. Peggy was our hostess and she had asked the color challenge design team to make samples for the challenge. Her theme was dots and stripes.
My dots and stripes paper is from the Stampin-Up "festival of prints" collection. My sentiment is also Stampin-Up  - the whimsical words set.

The candles are from the "party this way" set. I stamped and fussy cut them. I cut the flags from the Verve pennant trim die. I thought it would be a great birthday card for a guy.
Well, that's it for me for this post. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Lnad for another day. So until next time......God bless.
