Happy Father's Day

Jeanette made this card for Wayne, it's hysterical. The muscle man is from the Carousel cartridge. She thought he needed pants and a shirt so we cut the image twice more to make muscle man have some clothes. Muscle man Wayne is holding a cat (Simba) and a giant chocolate sandwich cookie. The "DD" stands for "Dino Dad", a nickname Jeanette calls him by.

Dad Card

My take on the Cricut Circle Weekly Challenge. Cuts are from the Father's Day Cartridge (except the banner), all cut and sized on the Gypsy to fit on A2 card base.

Circle Blog Monthly Challenge Entry

Here is my entry for the June Cricut Circle Monthly Challenge. I made 2 identical boxes, shown is the front of one and the back of another. The take out boxes were from Walmart, diecuts all from Cricut/ Gypsy using George, H2O, Just Because Cards, Luau, Mini Monograms, and Summer Vacation. Now to decide what to fill these with, we leave for NY in 2 weeks!

So Jeanette's party (small gathering) was postponed for a second time, but we decided to hang our decorations anyhow. Here are 2 of my favorites. Love that Cricut Expression!

A card and an update

It's been almost 3 weeks since I last posted, I finally got my log in info for the Cricut Circle, it really took a long time. I still have my membership cartridge coming in the mail, but in the meantime I got into the blog, on line mags, etc, pretty neat. There is a lot of fun info out there. The best deal for me was the circle exclusive items on the rewards program site. I ordered the following 4 cartridges for a total of $16 and 4000 points, that's only $4 per cartridge including shipping, I am so psyched! Nursery Rhymes, Shall we Dance, Holiday Cakes, and the first circle exclusive, French Manor!

I have not posted any pictures as my printer/ scanner has been out of commission, but I am back in business now. Here is a card I made today with PTI stamps and printed paper. Love it! Inspired by a cherry card they posted on one of their DT's blogs, I made 6 of these with just one 8x8 sheet of printed paper. The smudge near the berry is on the scanner, not the card, I can't seem to get that stupid scanner clean!
