Country Life and Happy Hauntings cuts

Ahhh, I just love this blue and brown color scheme - do you recognize it? It's the same as the engagement card I made for N and C in a previous post. I just can't seem to get enough of it. It's so pretty.

And here's my first Halloween card of the season. I cut the cat from the HH cartridge and used a Martha PATP punch set for the mat on which the cat rests. This is the first time I used one of these sets for a card. It was really easy and I think it's a nice accent. I stamped the backgound paper using a background stamp. All of this is new to me and I'm having so much fun experimenting.


Like Father, Like Son..... robot style

This was my first attempt at using the Cricut to make a 3-D object. I think Daddy Robot turned out pretty cute, don't you? My 9 year old chose the colors - he did a great job. The little green guy was something that I painted a couple of weeks ago.

Perhaps they are admiring this sight from our backyard.

Cricut Circle

Ahh, the day is finally here. I got my new Cricut Circle kit in the mail and the long awaited French Manor cart. Also, the new message board is up and running. It looks great! I thought I'd celebrate with a new easel card.

Cricut Housing blade set up

Recently, I begged for help from the ladies at the Cricut MB in order to get my Expression to cut detailed cuts. I successfully followed a series of tips and tricks and my engagement card with it's tiny cuts was the result. I'm thrilled beyond measure!!!!! Someone asked me to post a photo of the housing showing the arrow lined up with the seam of the screw thing, and not dead center which is how I had it originally.

Here it is:

Here are some more cards. I scraplifted the Little Birdie one. It is adorable! I gave it to our little friend that just competed and did very well in an Irish Dance competition!
