New Cricut Lites at WalMart Black Friday Deals!

WalMart will be having the new Cricut Lites for only $20 on Black Friday! And they sure are super cute carts. Remember, these are not full size cartridges but they do have some spectacular themed images and the phrases are phenomenal on most of them. A few have some really great fonts on them too that will be sure to liven up any layout or card :o)

In addition to the 7 new Lites, ProvoCraft is also releasing a new full size cart called Cricut Classic Font. This looks to be an updated version of Plantin Schoolbook.

Everyone have fun making their Christmas wish lists!! My top 3 fave are Twinkle Toes, Playtime and Inspired Heart... though that cupcake one sure is calling my name... Which are your favorites?

Special "Guest Designer"

My brillant 6 year old made a card for her Granddad all by herself with the Baby Bug Santa brought her this Christmas. I told her I would "feature" her on my beginning blog and she is so proud and excited. Thanks for looking:o)

Designer's Calendar

I was hoping to use Designer's Calendar cartridge for more than just calendar pages, when my hubby asked me to make a card for his father. Thus, the idea for a calendar card highlighting his birthdate! Card is 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 and the "happy birthday" is cut from Sweet Treats. Pretty simple in format but his dad likes pretty simple things so I think it will do. TFL!

I had a ton of fun making these football cards for a friend. Her son's team needed 3 cards for their coaches end of season banquet and I was privileged to make these. All of the Cricut cuts are from Sports Mania cartridge (for not being into sports, I just LOVE that cart! So many fun backgrounds and icons too!). I made the cards in 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 square for something a little different and inside each one is a different gift card holder. Hope you like them!

We have had some crazy snow here in Texas. I know the nation has been bombarded with the snow storms and some areas have reported snow falls of 20 and even 30 inches in just a few hours but I've never really seen anything like that. Well, on Feb. 12th we awoke to huge snowflakes falling and the ground already blanketed white. By midafternoon, it was still snowing and accumulating to 3 - 5 inches. By nightfall, we had a whopping 10 inches of snow! Here, in Texas, where we usually have pretty mild winters! We built snowmen, sledded (using a surf board without the fin - hey it's Tx, who's going to have a sled on hand?), had snow ball fights and made snow ice cream. But being typical Tx weather, 4 days later there wasn't even a hint of snow as proof of the weather we'd had! Still cold but sun shiny and a little wet.

Since then, we've had a couple more days of flurries but not much stuck to the ground. We have have 3 big snow episodes this winter with real snow on the ground for a few days - a first for this area!

Hope where ever you are that you are staying warm and cozy and making the most of this crazy winter:o)

Ellee Valentine's

I just love this new Paisley cartridge! It has the absolute cutest lil' guys on there... check out this adorable lil' elephant I have named Ellee:o) It's been a crazy last 6 months here and I am ready for 2010 to be a fun, happy and less stressed year! Hope everyone is doing well and crafting as much as they can.

Ellee is cut at 3 1/2 on an A2 card. Inked some of her edges and the little valentine she's delivering. Took the photo before I added stickes to the toes for an extra dazzle in her life. She's pop dotted for some dimension and used new Fiskars hearts corner/border punch for the bottom edge and corner. Enjoy!
