Having Fun With My Cricut!

Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day to you! I hope you are enjoying your day resting and being with family or friends! I am having my MIL and FIL for an impromptu birthday BBQ for me. It will be laid back and the hubby is it's all good!

As many of you know I am working with Provo Craft and am thrilled to be on their DT! Most of my work will not be shown here, because it is part of the Cricut Circle. But I am getting so addicted to my machine that I've been creating like a mad woman with it! This card for instance is just a "Cuz I felt like it" kind of a card! The cherries were cut using the Country Life cartridge. I cut several layers, inked the edges, and of course added my trademark glitter! The circles were cut with my Spellbinders and hand stitched. I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder and a bit of satin ribbon.
The stamp is an Stampendous. It was stamped in Pure Poppy by Papertrey Ink.

One of my sweet friends, Margie, sent me these photos that she had taken at CHA. Here is my hubby and I walking with the Cricut Bug. We were the bug's "Handlers!" LOL!

And a couple of pics of me working the PC booth! It was tiring but sooooo fun! I got to meet so many wonderful people and it was truly a once in a lifetime experience!

And one last pic.......Thanks Margie for sending me these! Now maybe at some point I will scrap 'em! : )
Whatever your plans are for today, I hope you have a great one!

Happy Hi Michele! Absolutely adore your Cherry on Top card! You've taken it over the top and I can certainly see why you're lovin' your Cricut! I've "borrowed" Jami's and have found many uses for perfect for scrapbooking, but use it for cards too. :) GREAT photos of you at CHA. Thanks for sharing. Hugs & smiles, Pam :)
