Fantabulous Cricut Harvest Blessings Crawl

Welcome to Glenda's Cards and the Fantabulous Cricut Harvest Blessings Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a blog hop! 

It's Fall and everyone at Fantabulous Cricut has decided to create projects to give thanks for our Harvest Blessings!  Each Design Team member will be featuring an original Fall project that includes Brown, Orange and Red – along with at least one Cricut cut.

If you've come from visiting Faith Abigail at http://www.faithabigaildesigns.com, you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE .
Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at some of our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Harvest Blessings" project at FCCB!

Now for my project!


I am so happy to be participating in my first Fantabulous Cricut Crawl!  Thanks for stopping by!
We pause to give thanks for our many blessings! One of my blessings is that my family lives close to me. At this time of Thanksgiving, I wanted to have a scrapbook page for a family photo that we will take. This gorgeous 12" x 12" paper is from DCWV The Four Season Stack which was bought on clearance after last Christmas. The page is pretty alone and I would not want to cut the page, but I thought some pretty Cricut cuts would add a great finishing touch!

Cricut cartridge is Thanksgiving Seasonal. This cartridge has pretty images and words. However, there are only two cuts for the images and only one cut for the words. I chose to use the phrase Count Your Blessings and cut it from Red cardstock at 2.25"  The gold photo mat is hand cut at  5 3/8" x 4 1/4"; patterned mat is 5 1/8 " x 4". The Cricut cut strip of Brown is cut 1.25" and the Orange leaf overlay is cut at same size. I layered this cut over the photo mat and will slip the photo into it.
I love the words written on the page!

Not what we say about our blessings,
but how we use them,
is the true measure of our thanksgiving.


Now I do have a little blog candy! How about a $20.00 Walmart gift card to one lucky follower! How does that sound! We do not have a Michael's or Hobby Lobby in my little hometown, but we do have Walmart Supercenter.
To be eligible to win, you must be a follower of my blog and leave me a comment on this post. Please include a way to contact you should you be the winner of the drawing. US mailing address only.  Drawing will be Friday  Nov. 18.

  1. Awesome layout Glenda! The colors are fantastic and I love teh whimsical feel of this layout. The font on the phrase is beuatiful-I have to check that Thanksgiving Seasonal cartridge out-I do not have that and thinking I am missing out on some great cuts! Beautiful job Glenda and so glad to be on the FCCB with you:)
