Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Today was a girls shopping day. I went with my friend to the Kirkland's and Home Goods stores. They are about a half hour away from my home. We spent almost 4 hours browsing through both stores and each of us bought a few things.
Then we got caught in a torrential downpour on the way home. I do not like driving on a highway when it's raining so hard you can't see and the water is ponding on the road. But, I exited as soon as I could and went home another way. It took a little longer but I felt better about driving on side roads.
I bought some wall sconces for my living room and when I unpacked the box at home one of them was broke. Now, I have to make another trip back to the store tomorrow. Friday's in that area are always so busy with traffic. Frustrating for sure.
Now onto my card for today. A few weeks ago I made this beach scene card. When I made it I sponged a couple of backgrounds and stamped the beach sand, sea oats and sand piper birds. So I had this one laying on my craft table. To finish it off, I decided to stamp a sailboat and a different sentiment. I stamped some birds in the sky and my card is done.
Now I have another card to send off to my niece who is battling breast cancer. She completed her chemo and the surgeon did a lumpectomy. Her cancer is a rare aggressive type of cancer. She is doing her radiation now. I saw her a couple of weeks ago and I think she looks great. I am sending her cards to encourage her.
Well, it's late and time for me to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
