Good evening all, I am so sorry my post didn't publish yesterday for the Crafty Sentiments Challenge and I didn't even realise until just now when I came to do this post!!
As of yesterday all Crafty Sentiments Challenges will be start on Tuesday's and this week saw the release of a new Halloween image which I was not able to use as I was away. However just for you I have a picture of the image that is on sale NOW as a digital download.
Her name is Annabel isn;t she the cutest witch ever!! So dig out those Halloween images and join in the challenge.
On Monday my godchildren called in to see me after school to show me their new uniforms and for the little one to tell me all about his first day at school which was so nice of them but there was a con!!
My god daughter Thavisha asked 'Auntie Kim can you make me a basket to carry my acorns in for my church service play for Harvest Festival?' Of course I said yes and I was informed it needed tree's and had to be brown and orange or Autumn colours.
So I designed this basket in the new Cricut Craftroom using Heritage and Plantin Schoolbook Cartridges and quite enjoyed making it. It was designed to fit a whole 12" x 12" sheet. The orange liner was made separately using Plantin Schoolbook and then just slotted into the basket. I used three different seam binding ribbons plated together to make the handle and I have just added some tissue paper inside for the photo.
I have just noticed in the photo that the two tree's have come unlinked, they were linked by extended an arm of the branch to stick behind the branch of the next tree. I can take another photo if needed.
Off trotted Thavisha to school this morning pleased as punch with her basket and when they called after school I immediately thought she had broken it and needed a repair but oh no that would of been so easy. 'Auntie Kim can I have 47 more of these baskets, my teacher has given me the card and some glue for you' well I nearly fell off my chair laughing, it is a good job I know her teacher, she used to be a colleague of mine in my teaching days and knew I couldn't say no if Thavisha asked!!
So if I don't reappear for the next week or so you know why lol.
