Recipe:
The Cricut Cartridges I used were Give a Hoot and Fabulous Finds.  I also used DCWV paper from the Green Stack (70% recycled) and Flower Shower. I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder with my Cuttlebug on the tree, 100% Jute string for the bow, a couple of brass brads and a random clear stamp that I purchased off the $1 rack at Michaels.

I am really LOVING this card.

Hi Hippo


I guess I really like this Create a Critter cartridge.  This card was created by using my Gypsy connected to my Cricut machine.  I wanted to use the new hide contour feature and use my Create a Critter face stamps that I got from Peachy Keen Stamps at peachykeenstamps.com.  You'll see that I only used the eyes stamp on the Hippo's face because I have a lot to learn about pre-planning.  I also just got the "Lots of Pun" stamp set from joyslife.com.  That's where the cute little "Hi-ppopotamus" saying came from. These stamps are very cute and worth every penny.

Birthday Butterfly


This card was created by using the Butterfly on the Create a Critter cartridge. I stamped the phrase, "Happy Birthday" on the inside but after looking at it now I wish I had stamped it on the bottom right corner.  That would have been much cuter.  I still love it though.

Go Wild Monkey


Here is my first card using my Cricut Machine.  This was done with the Create a Critter cartridge.

First Post

On my Blog I will be posting cards that I will make using my Cricut Machine.  I am just starting this new hobby.  My hope is to see much improvement in my abilities and creativity with each new card and will eventually become so good at this that I will be able to post "how to" videos and add new stuff to my blog page.
