Fantabulous Cricut #37 Thankful For....

Hello all my crafty friends out there. I am finally back to reality after having my last craft fair this year. This weeks challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is "Thankful For..." well I was having a hard time thinking of what I was thankful for until I was working on these blocks for the craft fair and it finally came to me... I am so Thankful for my FAMILY! I love them all very much. My husband is a great support to me and all my crafting adventures! My kids are the best and I love them for who they are and the things they teach me everyday. I wouldn't be the person I am today without them :) 
So for this project I got some scraps of wood (2x6's) from the guy building in my neighborhood (gotta love free wood right) then I cut 2 each of the same sizes 6,8, and 10 inches. Then I got a font I liked (I used Cuttin' Up) and with my Gypsy I figured up the size the letters needed to be. I ended up getting 3 sets of letters from one sheet of chocolate vinyl from ProvoCraft. After the paper was picked and the letters were cut I started putting them together. I used sticky strip to apply the paper to the wood and then eye balling it I stuck the letter to the paper. Then I got out some ribbon, buttons, brads and Prima flowers to finish them up. I hope you enjoy this project and that you will play along in the challenge this week, I know there are some awesome prizes up for grabs :) Be sure to check out the other DT members projects as well, they always have great ideas to inspire you!

These are super! The first paper combination is my favourite - but isn't it wonderful how you can take a project and change its feel just by changing the papers? How fantastic that you got free wood as well!! Great job!
