Spring is coming !

Happy Sunday Everyone!

Today I'm posting a picture of  signs I made for our Church Plant sale.

I used Walk in my Garden & Plantin SchoolBook for the letters and the grass.

Do you ever start something and it takes on a life of its own? well thats what happened here, I was looking for a wheelbarrow one day and was on the joanns web site and came across this cricut cartridge now I'm new to the cricut and wasn't sure I wanted to spend the money on the cartridge just for a wheelbarrow but it was on sale on line for 29.00 so I decided to go look around well it wasn't on sale in the store but learned that if I could bring the ad up on my phone they will price match plus I had a 10.00 off coupon that the lady used so it was only 19.00 Yeah ! and did I get my money's worth.

One of the things I really like about this sign is that next year you just have to remove the date and the paper with the potting party dates on it and slide a new date year after year in to the clear sleeves ( my son gets these comic books that come in these great sleeves along with cardbord that I have found many many uses for) another fun thing are my flower pots I cut two 5 inch pots for each sign and made a box to hold the information sheets ( the flower pots are held on with Velcro so they can come off for easy storage) I used Spellbinders  Curved Rectangles for the information sheets to look like seed packets. I put styrofoam in the bottoms  of each flower pot and glued brown paper on top to make it look like dirt so my information sheets would pop out the top.

 I had so much fun making 2 of these signs even though my family thought I was Crazy :) even after I cut and glued everything it still took me 6 1/2 hours to put each sign together I spent over 30 hours making these but it was so Worth it!! :)

Thanks for looking,

Hugs to all

Crafters of Faith

I'm Late I'm Late for a very important Date!

Morning bloggers, What a busy busy last few weeks here, I've been busy with handing out food and clothing at our church for the Tornado victims in our town that touched down March 15th , I love our little town you can feel the love as soon as you enter.

For the month of March our hostess Carolina from crafters of Faith  wanted us to make a card using a "lighthouse", "two pieces of paper" and some" Bling" I used this teal design paper and put it on some purple ,once I put the Bling on it kind of hides it ,opps and then I used some bling that has a hint of blue in them along the sides and around my light house which is Thomas Kinkade The Light of Peace" I then cut a frame using a spellbinder die and adding bling around it, I also used a Spellbinder die for my cross, I cut the first layer with gold metal and then the top layers is white paper added a pearl in the middle then added some flowers in the corner with some more pearls . On the inside I wrote " A reassuring presence A Light when times are dark, A hand reaching out, Is what Friendship is about  "
I like how it turned out and can't wait to mail it to one of my Friends.

Thanks for looking and I'll be back real soon.
