Pastor Appreciation

Tomorrow we will be showing our appreciation to our pastor and his wife. They have been a blessing to our church and community. Here is the card I made for them.
I was inspired by Kristine B at Bee Creative... Ink Something. (I have linked it to the card she created in 2008 but be sure to click on the top header and check out her blog. She is quite talented.)

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a blessed day!

Pumpkin Patch

I got this idea from the SplitcoastStamper site. I used Make the Cut to join two circles to create a donut, cut them out with the Cricut, and joined 5 of them together to make the pumpkin. I used the Jolly Rancher Lollipops for the center.
The leaf is from a die using my cuttlebug as is the tag. The orange circles are from the center of the donuts used for the pumpkin. The green ribbon is from my stash.
 I used an embossing tool to put a vein in the leaf.
I plan on giving these to my colleagues at work. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my pumpkin patch.
Have a blessed day!

Fearful Fiends Treat Bags

My boys are away this weekend celebrating my DH birthday at the beach. I couldn't go so I am taking my own retreat by crafting all weekend.

I started last night making the Halloween treat bags for my son's Kindergarten class. I found little boxes of tattoos, tiny activity pads, plastic bracelets, Hershey kisses, gummies, and mini Oreo packs. My plan was to make little treat boxes but there were so many items I found the sandwich baggies were easier.
I created the top header using Fearful Fiends from Lettering Delights with Make the Cut and my Cricut. To make the print and cut work I create a shadow image slightly larger than the image itself and only cut the shadow layer out. I used the Chiller font for the phrase. I also used my new punch that I have been wanting for some time. It's the drippy goo from Martha Stewart.
These are so cute and my son will be excited to hand these out on Halloween. Thanks for dropping by.

Have a blessed day!

My First Easel Card

My DH has a birthday on Friday and he is taking Fisher to the beach fishing. We are celebrating at the house on Wednesday. I wanted to try an easel card and had some time to play with it today. I used images from Lettering Delights Happy Camper and Happy Trails. I tried a PnC but found it was easier just to print and use my trusty scissors.

Can you tell that the canoe and the fishing hat are layered with pop dots?
I couldn't find the right image I wanted for the sun so I took a roll of tape and traced the inside with a black pen. I moved the roll around to make it look more like a scribble. I used a face from Peachy Keen to created the smile and colored with colored pencils.
Thanks for taking the time to look. Now I hope his present is delivered in time for him to open tomorrow.

Have a blessed day!
