Time to be Thankful

It's almost that time of year when we take an extra moment to remember all that we have to be thankful for. I made a banner to hang on my mantle after halloween. 

The base pieces were cut with the Cricut Artist cartridge as were the diamonds, letters and rosettes (I think that's what they are called). The leaves were stamped, colored with our new markers (really like them!) and cut out by hand. If you don't have the Artiste you could use our banners and decorate as you desired. There are many ways to make a banner with Close To My Heart and many reasons as well.

Some Halloween Fun

There is still time to make some great Halloween treats. I will be making these cupcakes again to share with my coworkers for Halloween. I just love the Cricut Artiste. Don't these liners make the cupcakes looks so cute! And then with the Foundry Pins the Halloween Greetings make a homemade cupcake look like so much more. These were made using the Spellbound Cricut Kit.

Then I may be making these for some of my special trick or treaters. This was also made using the Artiste. Inside there is a skeleton cut with the Artiste. I will fill it with candy.
