Three hours ago my new pink Cricut Expression was 100 miles from me. I almost have the tracking number committed to memory. In the morning I will know when it will be at my door. Do I sound excited? I can hardly wait. I won't really have any time to play with it as we are going camping on Friday, however I am so relieved that my machine will be here before we leave.

I made this card for a card swap. I needed a circle, a flower and something sparkly. The layout is from a SCS challenge. However, the original layout has squares not circles. The card I post to the challenge has the same colors, different print and I used the squares. Should I post both cards when I make two alike only different?
I used the George cartridge for the flowers, circles and the "its your day". I have used my "baby bug" more this past month than in the past 2+ years that I have had it.

This card is also from an SCS challenge. Didn't use my Cricut, but did use a Fiskars combo punch. I love the combo punches since I have figured out how to use them. I want to get a couple of Martha Stewart boarder punches and Spellbinders boarder dies so I have a better selection. When I learn how to use my Design Studio, I will also be able to make boarders on my Cricut.

While I have never had much luck putting "kits" together for crops, I am going to attempt to get some scrapbook page and card materials together in kit form to take camping with me. I am not an organized person, never have been and never will be; So getting everything I need together is going to be the real challenge.

Thank you for coming by. Take care

Your color combos are so soft and pretty. Have fun with your new Cricut.

I like your cards - the colors are great. Good luck packing up stuff for camping. I've been to a few get-a-ways to scrapbook and I know it is very difficult to get things ready unless you know specific things you are going to make. I've been known to bring up a HUGE suitcase full of stamp sets (because you never know what you will need) and most of my embellisements. Yes - I'm been made fun of but who has some thing they may need that they didn't bring? ME!!!

Have fun!
