So excited... I have to share

This may not be super exciting to those of you who have hundreds of cartridges but I am stoked.  On Friday, I took full advantage of the Love is in the Air sale that was having.  And today it was like Christmas all over again.  I came home to a lovely package stuffed with my treasures.  Here's what I ended up with...
Mini Monsters - not a fan of Halloween but these little guys stole my heart
Ashlyn's Alphabet - the fonts are amazing on this cart
Freshly Picked - this one reminded me of my husband's grandma, can't wait to create with this
Cindy Loo - Ricketts Cricuts has raved about this cart - she knows everything, just had to get it
Serenade - it's discontinued, so I had to buy it - you understand.

Plus - like all girls are ecstatic about - they were all on SALE! I think that was my favorite part. T-he he he

Sunday Somethings

Ok, well This was supposed to be posted yesterday. 

Sundays are often a time for me to reflect on the prior week and plan for the upcoming events.  Luckily, last week was pretty uneventful.  I was fighting off a wonderful cold and couldn't concentrate long enough to complete a project.  But, let me tell you.  I was feeling much better Saturday.  I was home alone so I crafted to my heart's desire :)  I was able to complete 2 Thank You card stacks.  I've bundled them to add some cute packaging to them.  Also finishing up some additional projects.  I wrapped up my first order of Valentine's Day cards.

This first one is on off white card stock with dark green shimmer paper cut with the botanical's Cricut lite cartridge.

My second set is simple but right to the point.  Bright colors always add an extra smile to the recipient.  I've used ribbon from Michael's and cut the letters from the Plantain Schoolbook cartridge.

This is the final valentines day card I made for my Valentine's Day order.  Made from Hoot 'n' Hollar Cricut lite cartridge.

This one is a blank card I made out of some scraps I had.  Not super cute but it serves it's purpose.  The birdhouse and the designs inside are from Botanical's cricut lite cartridge.
