Switching seasons

Hi bloggers,

By the calendar, summer is over, schools have resumed and fall schedules are starting to begin. Summer camps are a lovely memory and new experiences in fall programs are anticipated. Churches are gearing up for the weekly youth activities which is a very important aspect to ministering to the children and young people. Here the weather doesn't know that summer is supposed to be over as the forecast for our temps. today are to be around 100 degrees, also hot for the rest of the week. We've had some lovely thunder and lightning storms this summer, one which caused a large fire just outside of town for over a week. But God is good and no one was badly injured.

1 Peter 2:9-But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Praise God that we can be His children!

I wanted to also share some cards I've made.

The black and white one is a Twist Fold card that several people on YouTube have shown. One in particular was France Martin in her version which is a bit smaller to fit in a regular card sized envelope. The other one was one I made when playing w/ my punches.

This next photo is of the cards made at a gathering on Monday in a group that is starting up again after taking the summer off. Everyone brings a project and enough "ingredients" for each person to make that project.
As you can see, there are 6 cards, an envelope and a little apple candy holder. The part to the "apple" were cut from a Silhouette machine. Am not familiar with the workings of that particular machine, but it makes some fun things. The envelope was made using the We R Memory Keepers envelope board.

This is the day of remembrance of those who have fallen. May we never forget.
Hope all is well with my readers.
Blessings to you all.
