Fall for Jesus Bulletin Board

Hi everyone, since it's not going to be much longer before our church puts up the Christmas decorations, I opted for a very simple Fall bulletin board. Because I know the one I'm doing for Christmas, will take me a while to put together and after spending all that time I want it to be up as long as it can be. I got my Cricut last year for Christmas and I've had this Christmas bulletin board planned ever since I opened my cricuts box. Here's the Fall Bulletin Board and it went right along with our Fall Festival.
Like I said, it was very simple. After I cut out all of the letters and leaves, I inked around the edges with Color Box Chestnut ink.  I really liked this font, I don't have my gypsy handy, but I think the letters are from the Life's A Party Cricut Cartridge and the leaves are from the Pooh and Friends Cricut Cartridge.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
God Bless

My Son, Jesse, dressed for the homecoming court.

Jesse got elected to be on the homecoming court and here he is all jazzed up in his tuxedo. He looks so handsome. Tonight is the homecoming game and he gets to walk across the field with his friend, Beverly. His little sister is sick, so I'll be missing the game, but my husband and oldest daughter Danée will get to see him. Of course, I took a picture of him before he left and he looked adorable.

Isn't he just the handsomest guy you've ever seen?

Build a Bear - Missionary Card

We had the sweetest missionary, Mary Meighan, come to our church one Sunday and it just so happened that we knew her from when my husband preached at the Plant City Church of the Nazarene. So my daughter and I wanted to make her a card. We were so happy to see her again. Well, I wanted to do a simple bear card - then my daughter got involved and she always works from the mind set that the sky's the limit. I kept saying I don't have that on a cartridge and she'd just reply, "Mom, you just cut it by hand." Okay, silly me. When Mary was in Paupa New Guinne she worked as a nurse. So I made the nurse bear (I had a die for that) and my daughter made the tribe bears. Who Mary assured us actually did dress like this. I hope you like our card.
The bears are all cut from the Stamp-in Up Build A Bear Die along with the nurses outfit.
The tribe bears outfits and accessories were hand cut, drawn and colored by my daughter, Danée.
I hand wrote the sentiment.

Lollipop Flowers with a Pinch

I have been wanting to make some lollipop flowers and finally got to do it today. I made my first one and it looked just like the lollipop flowers I've seen on you tube. Then I accidentally pinched my fabric differently when I was heating the next petals and came up with a flower that I love. I wanted to share it with you all and see what you thought of it.
I used satin fabric, the circles #2 die, my big shot, sequins, feathers, a stick pin, different embellishments for the center and my hot glue gun.

Simple Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky with K. Andrew

This weeks challenge was to make any kind of fall treat. So I used designer paper from Stamp-in Up (ice cream parlor pack). I cut the paper at 4 X 6 inches and scored every 2 inches. Then I cut from the top score line down to the 1.5 inch mark on both sides. I then folded the paper over and taped down the edges. It is the perfect size candy bar holder for a treat size Hershey bar.
The punch on the front is the scalloped circle punch and the 1 3/8 inch circle punch from Stamp-in Up. With a stamp from the K. Andrew Designs Fall-o-ween Set. It was all inked and stamped with colorbox chestnut ink.

I hope that you think these are as cute as I do. I think they would make an awesome little gift to pass out to kids in a class or at church.
Thanks for visiting me today and happy crafting.
