~Christmas Candles~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with the Charmed Life Blog. I am still out in San Francisco although today is my last day here. 

My son and daughter-in-law returned home last night. She went to do some errands and Phoenix Daisy wanted to go with her. So I took the opportunity to get a blog post done. Tonight we are going out to dinner to celebrate Father's Day since they were in Mexico on Sunday. And before dinner the girls are going to a ceramic shop to do a little painting before we meet up with my son. It will be fun.

I miss my hubby and am ready to go back home. Tomorrow will be a long day of travel. They are all coming here in July for 10 days so I will get to spend time with them soon. Looking forward to their visit.  Phoenix will get to stay with me alone for 3 days while my son and daughter-in-law go to a concert. She and I are both excited about that. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for the color challenge ##585. I was the hostess for this challenge, and I chose wild wasabi, cherry cobbler and gold  for the color trio. I decided to go with a Christmas theme for my card. 

I used some Memory Box dies to create the Christmas candle and window scene. On the background, I used the Kassie's Brocade embossing folder from Cuttlebug. I inked it up with gold ink before putting my paper inside. 

For the sentiment, I used the Stampin'-Up set "come to Bethlehem". Used the MFT bracket die as an anchor. I plan on making about 10 of this design for Christmas. 

Well, my friends that's it for me for today. My next post will be done from my home in Pittsburgh. So until next time.......God bless.
