It was my Birthday recently and my awesome hubby (and kids) got me a cricut!! I am so excited and a little overwhelmed with all of the possibilities. It is so fun, though, I love it!! So, here is my first card using the Don Juan cartridge...I created the window card base with the cricut:

Super simple!

Supplies: AC PP and stickers, May Arts ribbon.

And, here are a few mini cards I made using the same supplies and also the cricut: thanks cut~also from the Don Juan cart (the only one I have right now).

(these three mini cards will be in the upcoming October CARDS publication).

Well, that's it for me...just a few minutes till my oldest will get home from school, so I'd better get ready for him :)

Thanks for stopping by!

It looks like I missed out again on seeing the cards that are "out for publication" but that is okay since I receive Cards Magazine.

Congratulations on getting your Cricut! I love mine so much and often wonder how I managed without it!

Happy Birthday! Lots of {{{HUGS}}} from me to you!
