Here's the last of Christmas cards, I am happy that I got out all the Christmas cards for this year. I know what to do differently next year, this was my first Christmas with my cricut it became a little overwhelming...just think I have a year to work on Christmas cards. I really enjoyed making Christmas cards and loved all the beautiful ideas that was shared on cricut messageboard, blogs and youtube.

Cartridges used were Wild Card, Plantin Schoolbook, and Christmas Cheer.

I got the snowman idea from Dawn over on youtube.

This card & envelope is made from Wild Card Cartridge

And one last JOY card

I would like to thank my followers and everyone that stop by to visit my blog, looking forward to more post ideas and projects in the year.
Merry Christmas!!!

I have been working hard on getting my cards out before deadline to guarantee that they make it on time for Christmas. Something is wrong with my digital camera's not charging at all, gotta figure that out before Christmas because I LOVE taking pictures.  But I used my scanner to scan cards, wish I would have thought of that sooner.

Paper was from DCWV Holiday Stack

Cartridges that was used:
Plantin Schoolbook, Gypsy Font, Gypsy Wanderings, Christmas Cheer

Cuttlebug Folders used:
Swiss Dots

Here is several cards:
I scraplifted the square JOY card from Joy over @ so shout out to her at the time I was having a brain freeze couldn't think of any ideas this was a very quick & simple card but alot of layering, I put a stamp sentiment inside of cards. Thanks for the idea!!!

It's that time of the year, since I got my cricut I have been looking forward to this "making Christmas cards" so I will be posting these until I have mailed them all out. You will see the same card 3 times it will be a different design & different color so I hope you enjoy.
This card is from the Christmas Cheer cartridge so since I'm making cards why not try the one they have in the book it is a different size and I decided to do a little something else to the tree and the layout of each one.
Cuttlebug folder used are Swiss Dots.

By the way, I am so loving this cartridge.

The Cartridge used was Wild Card (2 different styles of leaves), Gypsy Font (Letter "B")  and Gypsy Wanderings(word grateful).

Goodies from Michael's

I went to Michael's this weekend and I found some goodies, wooden block stamps just in time for the Christmas holidays. I have been debating on some stamps to get but just didn't see any I like but for the price of $1 sounds great to me, I'm gonna get some more to add to collection sometimes the stamps just don't have the sayings you want so instead of buying a stamp set with only one stamp that I like I tend to check this $1 bin out at Michaels.
