I Love sales, and Birthday Invites

I am all gung ho with my new blog so you get two posts (if not more if I decided to do more posts) today. I got a text message yesterday from a friend telling me that Roberts had Carts for the cricut on sale for 25 dollars. This just made my day! After getting off work yesterday I headed straight there... I have been trying to decide wether or not I wanted to buy the Tags,Bags,Boxes and more for months but always decided on other carts when I went to purchase it. Well come to find out this was one of the carts that was on sale! I also was able to purchase the Christmas Cheer Cart this was perfect timing where we are in the middle of the christmas season and I am just starting to make my christmas cards.

On another note I wanted to show a project I worked on the other day. My coworkers little girl turns 4 on friday and so I was asked if I could make invites to her party. I have grown to love this litte girl as if she was one of my nieces (although I don't have any yet) and never grow tired of her hugs and "cuddles" and so I couldn't refuse. I made these cards from the DoodleCharms Cart. I Cut the cupcakes out on pink card stock at 3 1/2 and then cut the top layers out of the patterned cardstock. I then cut the bottom portion off of the pink cupcakes and pulled out my crimper and crimped the bottoms so that they looked like actual cup cake cups. I then glued the patterned paper "icing" part to the top of the pink cup cake that i had cut off so that I would have a pink candle. I then used Foam tap to make it pop off the card and finished with the patterned flame. I was happy how they turned out how ever I wish that i had more time so that I could used a letter cart to write "PARTY" or something under the cup cake

New Blog and Some Christmas Cards

I've seen so many Crafters with blogs posting their current projects I thought I'd give it a try... who knows if anyone will be interested but I'll have it for myself :)

On that note here are the first two christmas cards i've made this year... the first one is made With the Joys of the Season Cart for My cricut... And the Second using the Christmas Cheer Cartrage, both Are Figgy Pudding Papers by Basic Grey. I Just love this collection... its so Cute!
