Couple of cards....

I used my cuttlebug folder (swirls) and my cricut for the invitation above, and Stampin' Up! stamps for my moms birthday card below....I also used my newest friend - the nestability shape...can't remember the name but I love it!

Fun Crafts I've been working on....

Here's some pics....they've been held captive in my camera for way too long....
the Christ frame was made by my parents!! They totally rock, I just made the vinyl...then mom had a pretty little grouping of sailboats and the picture so the scripture seemed to be begging to go there...

The picture frame and wall words were a special project for a friend. She had this picture of her and her daughters cute painted feet (from a vacation I think) and I simply put their names and the hibiscus flowers on the glass. The created the quote for the wall in vinyl too (found it online, anon author) "A daughter is happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and hope and promise of the future"

Master Cricut List

Just A Scrappin' blog has a list of all the carts with active links to sample cuts and their handbooks HERE. Great for checking what ones you want or even seeing things you didn't know your current carts had!! Thanks Linda!!

Birthday surprises!

So, today's my Birthday and what a great weekend I had!! First, Wednesday I got the 7th book in the Womens Murder Club (James Patterson) - Mark said he had to give it to me early cause he knew how bad I wanted it and if I saw it for sale I would buy it...hee hee...and Friday I got the Cuttlebug (wanted for a very long time!!) - Thanks again honey!! And....Friday night we had dinner at the Olive Garden (my favorite) with some great friends (another surprise) and they brought balloons and flowers :-) Lovely!! Yesterday was Easter and I got to spend it with my parents and family and we had Birthday cake for my older brother, mom, and I!! Then....I know....there's more! Today I came in to work and saw this -

Cricut friend and enemy!

Ah..I love my Cricut - both of them :-) Mom has the baby bug and I still love using it but the Expression allows me to do so much more and I love that too! But alas, I keep wanting the dang carts! On my wish list now is Storybook, Wild Card, and either Celebrations or Beyond Birthdays....can't decide and haven't had the time to check them both out fully. I did get Sure cuts a lot which is FABULOUS but for quick easy cards and pages I still love the carts!!

For those coming to the crop on May 2nd and 3rd, I will have 2 cricuts and 22 carts to play with!! FUN FUN FUN!
