The card on the left is from last year's Martha Stewart paper. I used a Jolee sticker for the wreath and popped it up. The middle card is from my scrapbook calendar pages and the last card is just scrap paper with some snowflakes I free-handed with glue & glitter and used a couple of pop-up stickers from Michaels.
I finally started working on my Christmas cards. I took these pics with my Iphone so I hope they are OK. I used the pages from my scrapbook calendar that my husband got me last year. Each day had a different theme page so all I had to do was cut out glue and WA LA. I did use my Cricut to cut out the Warm Wishes on the penguin card.
It's been awhile since I've been able to post anything. Life gets that way sometimes.
I made a thank you card for a couple that my husband and I met and have become friends with. They own a native plant nursery and I thought the card was cute.

Over the last couple of years I've participated in seed swaps. They are a great way to try new plants, flowers or veggies without spending a lot of money. I sometimes would make small paper envelopes or use a baggie and write on it with the name of the seed, etc. Now that I have a Cricut, I can make a kinds of cool things to use for swaps or for giving a plant as a gift, etc.
Cricut Expression machine Cricut Walk in My Garden Cartridge 1 12 x 12 navy cardstock Cricut sticky mat
The great thing about the Cricut Expression is that I can cut something from itsy bitsy teenie tiny to very large. So I made some tags 3 inches while others 2 3/4 and 1 3/4 inches. I hit the tag button and used the size dial to set my size, hit the watercan picture and then the quantity button and then CUT. The picture of the screen isn't the greatest but you get the idea. Finally--the finished product of the tags in their various sizes. So if you ever gets seeds from me and you love the tags this is my secret.
Well, went to JoAnn Fabrics today to get some embossing folders for the Cuttlebug hubby got me as an early birthday present. Luckily everything was on sale.
One of the folders I picked out is called "Bird Call." My best friend was just elected the President of her local Audubon Society so I decided to make her a simple card.

I cut the green card stock to 6 x 6 and the green striped card stock to 5 x 51/2. Put the green card stock into the embossing folder and ran through the Cuttlebug. Used plates A, B & B. I then glued the green striped cardstock inside and WaLa-- instant simple card. I'll write a note and add some seeds for her garden for plants that attact birds.
