"Give Thanks" ~ Home Decor With Cricut

I've been cleaning out closets lately and stumbled across this empty wood frame.  I didn't have any pictures that size that needed framing so I began to ponder it's other possibilities for a craft project.  With the Holidays coming up I saw the potential for dressing it up in a temporary way for the each season.  I went to Cricut Craft room to see what sort of Thanksgiving themed projects they had that would make a good wall decoration.  I am very pleased with the outcome!  I think it's fun, a little whimsical and will go so well with the rest of my Fall themed decorations.  I've listed below the supplies as well as Cricut cartridges I used for this project.

Humorous Get Well Card

A very special young man in our lives just had surgery for scoliosis and we wanted to cheer him up as his surgery approached.  There was already so much worry and heavy emotion weighing on him and his family that it seemed like even a momentary smile would be helpful and healing.  I had the thought "Straight as an arrow" running through my head for days whenever I thought of our young friend and the outcome of his surgery.  I ran with the idea of "straight as an arrow"  and this is the card that emerged from the vision.  Video Tutorial 

I was already sure of God's grace in this situation and the positive outcome and I wanted to spread that encouragement to him and those around him.  Please remember to pray for the young people around you who are going through something.  Your prayer could make all the difference in the world to them.
