Its Saturday and I decided I needed to open my new Cricut machine. I have had it for nearly two months, unopened, hidden under my desk. It was time to see if it knew what it could do, so I decided to make a card. This is what we came up with. The card needs so much help; I see no redeeming qualities to it, but I had fun cutting it out. Well, I didn't actually cut it out, my Cricut did. All I had to do was fold the card, put the blue behind the snowflake and add the blue to the face of the card including the word "believe". But it needed something else so I stuck a piece of cording along the side, that didn't help. Unless someone can tell/show me how to make the Cricut cut cards more interesting, I don't think I will be making any more of them. That doesn't mean I won't use my Cricut to make cards, I will just do it differently. So any suggestions on how to improve this card would be greatly appreciated.

On another note the hummingbird babies are getting so big. I look out my window and see their little heads above the rim of the nest. They appear to have their feathers, and mom doesn't stay around very much. I haven't seen her sit on the nest for a couple of days. Its been warm here probably in the 80s, so that may be warm enough for them. I am certainly going to miss them when they are gone. I just hope that I will be lucky enough to see them fly off.

Joyce,
Don't give up on making cards with the Cricut yet. It's a learning process for sure. I've had mine since they first came out and I still don't have it mastered. There is also a book available called "Card-Making" with the Cricut. I've heard it is a great resource. Hang in there! It really is a cute card.
