Getting Cricky simply sunday guest designer post

Happy Sunday Everyone!!!!
I hope that you are all enjoying this wonderful day that God has created for us. His creation and love is all around us. He loves everyone of you, He knows you better than your best friend, he knows your every thought and the number of hairs on your head. He is so WONDERFUL!!!! 

I am super excited today because I am guest designer at Getting Cricky Simply Sunday’s challenge. Kristal is a wonderful and caring person, she has been so wonderful to me and I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your encouragement that you have taken the time to give me. Kristal, you rock girlfriend.  Did you know that she has her own line of stamps now? In addition to her generous nature, she donates money from each sale to selected charities.  So go check out her stamps if you haven’t, they look amazing!!

Today the Challenge is called Lunchbox lovin’ meaning to make any project that features food.. What a yummy challenge.
So here is my Foodie project.

Recipe: (note I had a photo tutorial for you all but my camera decided to erase the pictures. Sorry)

I took a piece of cardboard (well actually 3 pieces) I wrapped them in duct tape to create the base.
I then added a 12 x 12 patterned paper to the top of it. Punching 2 holes in the top to run my ribbon through. I had to thread my ribbon using my scissors to get it through the tape. I tied knots in the ribbon ends and applied massive amounts of hot glue over them.

I used buttons to cover up the holes and tied small purple bows.

The Grapes are cut from preserves @ 8”.
I used devine swirls cuttlebug embossing folder on the leaves and added some green glitter glue.

I used SCAL2 to cut the words. The font is Kristen ITC

The verse is John 15: 1-4, and I printed it out and used my MS doily lace punch around the edges.

I finished the sign by adding some bling.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!
