My Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge FINALLY arrived and I was so anxious to try it out. Jezebel wanted me to make a Valentine for Daddy IMMEDIATELY and I was happy to oblige. This cartridge is really a no brainer with shaped cards already on there for the cutting (no messing with welding in Design Studio) so I was able to do it all yesterday afternoon at Leah's (BeeCherryLady on the Cricut message board) while we gabbed away. LOL Jezzie chose red, black and white to match the cards Goliath and I were giving DH (I'm surprised she didn't want pink and sparkly) so I decided to cut the bow and heart out of red metallic cardstock to add a little bling. The bow was cuttled with my Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder and "I love you " was embossed on the heart. The kitty herself I cut out of white glossy cardstock and I added some glossy accents to her eyes and nose and popped her bow, the heart and paws for dimension. A really simple card but isn't she sweet!? This is card #22 for Jen's card a day challenge. Be sure to pop over to her blog HERE to see all of the gorgeous things she's been creating.
Also I was delighted to see that my new blogging friend Linda at Pinklilacs had tagged me. This is a fun way to get to know your cyber friends better. In this case I was to go to where I store my pictures and find my 6th folder and post the 6th picture in the folder and explain it. Mine is a picture of my family room fireplace all decked out for Christmas. All my rooms have themes for Christmas and the family room is "Christmas in the Vineyard" as we live in Livermore which is CA wine country of the East Bay (of San Francisco). Now I shall tag 6 friends who visit my blog that I would like to get to know better. They are:
