One more...

Just thought I'd also share a fun thank you card I made for a neighbor who brought Brandon and I some cranberry pumpkin bread recently.  I had been wanting to make a thank you card using my new Tear Drop cartridge so I was very excited to have the opportunity.  :-)

Grandma's Birthday Card

So I know I said I was going to post a wedding card today, but I've decided to submit that card to be part of the My Pink Stamper Design Team.  I will post that card after the MPS Design Team has been announced.

For now, here is a super cute card I made to send my grandma for her birthday.  She called me after it arrived in the mail and was excited I sent her a homemade card.  She couldn't believe the cutout letters and thought it must have taken a long time.  But thanks to my Cricut, I can cut sentiments out quick and easy!  I LOVE IT!  The card itself did take me a while b/c I'm such a perfectionist and have to measure everything just right.  But after such a wonderful call from Grandma, it makes it all worthwhile!  :-)

A New Start to an Old Hobby...

Okay... so I've never done this whole blog thing before, but I figured it would be a great way to archive my new adventures with an old hobby - scrapbooking.  This time, thanks to my fabulous Cricuts (yes, that was Cricuts plural... I have the Cricut Personal Cutter and the Cricut Expression - and I LOVE them both!)... anyways, thanks to my amazing Cricuts, I have expanded my crafting to include card making, too.  There is just something so rewarding and so relaxing about scrapping... whether for my own memories or to share with others, I LOVE SCRAPPING!

Brandon also enjoys my scrapping time as it means he is free to play his video games or watch the military channel / sports without me complaining.  LoL.  Seriously though, he is very supportive and only complains a little when I ask him to run with me to Hobby Lobby or Michael's "real quick" (HA!) so he can use a 40% off coupon along with me to get whatever supplies I just have to have this week.  He is even the one who started calling me a Cricuteer - thus the inspiration for my blog title.  Gotta love a supportive man!  :-)

I will start posting pictures of my recent projects soon.  Last night, I created a beautiful wedding card for friends who are getting married tomorrow.  I have taken pictures and will post on Sunday (don't want the happy couple to see the card before we give it to them!).

Until then...

Happy Scrapping!
