Fall Birthday

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog this last Sunday in September. 

Hope your weekend is going well. Mine was a bit different. I had a day and night to myself yesterday.  My hubby went to the Penn State Football game yesterday in State College. Our sons gave it to him as a Father's Day gift. Since it was a night game, they rented a house there and stayed overnight. 

He just came back home and now we are getting ready to go over to our Pittsburgh son's home for dinner to celebrate my birthday. Our California son came in for the weekend so it's a bonus that I get to see him as well. 

This morning it was my turn to teach Sunday school. I have the 5–7-year-old class. The lesson went over well, and they loved the craft we did that reinforced the lesson. I really like teaching this age level. They are receptive to the way I teach. I usually start with a game or 2 that ties into my lesson. Then I show a short video-always 5 minutes or less that is another reinforcement of my lesson, followed by some questions to see if they were listening. Then our craft time, then a snack and my 45 minutes is up. 

Now let's move onto my card for today. This one I created using the colors from the Splitcoaststampers color challenge #964. Our colors were moody mauve, misty moonlight and copper clay. Optional is to use die cuts.
moody mauve, misty moonlight, copper clay

I thought these colors would make a great Fall birthday card. My friend is celebrating in October. I used the CottageCutz Christmas Floral die and cut the greenery in moody mauve, copper clay and mossy meadow cardstocks.

The pot is cut in pecan pie (neutral) and shaded with the same ink. Added my sentiments -cut in copper clay.

The background designer paper is from the Stampin' Up "earthen elegance" collection. I added a few misty moonlight enamel dots to complete my card.

Well, that's it for me for this post. Time to head out the door for my birthday celebration. So until next time .......God bless.
