My new cricut!!!

So, Neil is such a sweetie! He got me a cricut for Christmas. But the only reason I know this is because he works too much. Let me explain... I told him about the cricut a month ago, then I started to drop subtle hints. I thought it would be a long shot before he ever bought it for me. Well, he called me up last Tuesday and told me that JoAnn's was having a sale on them and I had to hurry. I paid $259.00 (plus tax) for my cricut expressio
ns. I have had lots of time to play with my cricut.
Check out my first card! I made it for Ria's Cowboy/Western themed swap. All the little bits and pieces are so teeny tiny, it took me forever to put him
together! I found, after many trials that the 2" paper doll fits comfortably on an atc.
So, my second experiment was Dawn's St. Patrick's Day swap
. I like the color green. It is a color that can never be over-used. This card was a bit trickier.
I had to go buy a gold felt tip marker to complete this card.
Well, I am still learning the ins and outs of this machine. I am so glad I got it! It has made scrapbooking/ATCs easier!
