HYCCT1408 ~strong anchor~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Our Sunday started off with church and then we had an anniversary luncheon afterwards.
The church is celebrating 24 years. For a non-denominational Christian church that's a milestone. Churches of this type that aren't affiliated with a particular denomination sometimes have a short life.
But ours has not been one of the statistics. We have a well grounded Pastor who preaches directly from the Bible and interprets it soundly as well.
The luncheon was a Potluck so I made pulled pork and also macaroni & cheese. they were both big hits. We had quite a selection of delicious dishes to sample. Desserts were awesome as well.
Now onto my card for today. This is another for the HYCCT challenges on Splitcoaststampers. These challenges run through October 31 and we have until November 7 to get our cards posted. I am behind on the challenges. We don't have to do all of them but I hope to be able to finish.
This is my card for Bridget's HYCCT1408 challenge. She wants us to make a card inspired by someone who is a hero to you.

 I made this masculine card for my husband who is my hero and my strong anchor. He is always so supporting of me and especially this year.
We had a tragedy hit our family this year and he was an incredible strong anchor for our family.

I used the Verve set "strong anchor". The layout is this week's sketch challenge #510. Allison is our hostess there and provided a great layout.
Well that's my card for today and it's time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
