Digging up a Big Thank You

Today we have a Thank You card for a lady at my church that makes the most amazing things here is a shirt she did for my grandson so I thought this was the perfect thank you card to go with the picture of him wearing it for her.

For this card I used the Beep Beep cricut cartridge and the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge

COF September Blog Hop

Welcome to the first Crafters of Faith Blog Hop! We are so blessed to have you stop by and celebrate the beauty of AUTUMN with us! The Crafters of Faith blogging group is a joyous blending of christian friends ~ joined together to fellowship, share our faith, build friendships and craft together! If you are just visiting and would like to hop with us, welcome! If you hopping along already, you should have arrived from Jackie's blog over at Kreatewithme2.

This month, our hostess is Carol over at  She gave us a wonderful Harvest challenge and here is what she asked us to create: "I love FALL, the colors and the smells! I would like to propose that we make a card with fall colors, it should include fruits and vegetables to remind us of the harvest. When my kids were small, I canned peaches and pears, made pickles and such. So much fun to open those jars in the dead of winter! I am looking so forward to the fall festival of Sukkoth (Feast of Tabernacles). To Biblical historians, this is the actual time of Christ's Birth and many people believe this will also be the season of HIS return. Blessings All!"

To celebrate in this glorious season upon us, here is the card I created for you!

My jar stamp & God Loves you are both from Inkadinkado , spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities Petite  to make the lid for my jar ,Assorted Fresh Fruit from spellbinders for my Apples, Spellbinders S-4-265 shapeabilties Cross Collection Die template for my cross, for my border on top I used
spellbinders Big Scalloped Border Petites and my tag is  Labels Ten also from spellbinders. My paper is from DCWV and I cut some paper to put in the jar to look like homemade applesause. Yum Yum I remember making this as a kid with my grandmother.

From here, continuing hopping to Sharon over at ScrappingMum to see what Autumn splendor she has waiting for you! We also have a special little giveaway for one lucky hopper today and you can find that on Kelly's blog Sandcastle Stamper the last stop on the hop!

Thank you for stopping by today! In this glorious season of Fall, and the wonders of the earth changing to gorgeous colors .... in a time of gratitude and thanksgiving ... we wish many blessings for you!

Boxes are packed

Happy Thursday ,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far and the storms stayed away .

It's going to be a very busy a week here Were moving and the boxes are packed and ready to be loaded ,its been hard having all my craft stuff boxed up and not being able to play for the last week, I have so much to do once I get them to our new place but I'm so excited, since we don' t use a formal dinning room I'm going to turn that into my office so I will have so much more space to work and leave stuff out when I'm working on it so now I've got to come up with some cleaver ideals to keep everything hidden away since there won't be a closet to put it all in but my brain is thinking of so many things to do , my Dh is having a heart attack at the ideal of me painting our china cabnet so I may have to work around that for now but I'm thinking it could be some great storage.

Hope you all have a Happy Weekend and the next time I see  you I'll be in our new home !

Big Hugs ,

What will it be???

As some of you know my daughter is having another baby and were so excited to have him or her join their big brother so to let everyone know what she is having we made a special card.

I used spellbinders banner die, spellbinders circles and Cricut create a critter for this cute giraffe.

We made a mixture of silver paint and dish soap ( at the bottom of this post) we typed the gender on paper then cut out and painted with the paint and sent a penny to everyone to scratch off and  reveal the gender.

What do you think little girl pink or little boy blue?

Prepare your mixture. Two parts paint for every one part dish soap. Mix it up good, but try not to stir too aggressively - you don't want too many little bubbles.
  Use thin, even layers. Don't worry if you can still see through it after the first coat, it will most likely take two or three coats to get it all covered.

Be sure to check back this week to see what are new family member will be!
