I will confess I am cheating a little bit on today's posting. I've used Create a Critter several times so I didn't feel the need to make something new just yet. I just couldn't get motivated to go into my "studio" (doesn't that sound high fallutin'?....btw...what exactly is a "fallutin'"??) today. I had a tennis match this morning (we lost...boo!) and then ran up to see my daughter, AG and NBG. They are all doing great by the way. AG has learned to say "Omie" which is my 'grandma' name. Did you know that it is possible to say "Omie" 132 times in 60 seconds? I know because I was there! LOL! That little 21 month old is learning all kinds of new vocabulary and boy is he using it!!!
And NBG is getting chubbier and chubbier...we meant to have a photo shoot today again but after we went to the mall for a little while this morning we were just all too tired and elected to take naps instead! But she's doing great and getting bigger and bigger...and starting to look at your face. She turned 3 weeks yesterday.
So, I confess I didn't make anything new for today but I do have two things to share: one card I already made with Create a Critter is posted HERE and is another of my favorites. I bet you didn't know that the postage stamp was on the cartridge...that's what's so fabulous...you find all kinds of goodies with Cricut!
Create a Critter has all kinds of cute images...birds, animals, fish, reptiles...even a dinosaur or two. It also has lots of cute layers for the images so you get a more "complicated" but visually pleasing figure. And there is some very cute word art on this cartridge! It's really a fun cartridge made up of happy little characters!
The other card (picture at the top of this post) was an invitation I did for my grandson's 1st birthday party.
I used some very old (greater than 5 years!) Making Memories paper and some plain old cardstock and kraft paper I had around. I used a Fiskar's border punch. The little horsie was run through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. Simple but cute for his little western themed party.
Here is a picture of AG on his birthday in his western wear. Howdy Pahdnuh! Wow...he'll be 2 in 3 more months! I guess I'd better be thinking of an invitation design!
I also entered this in the CAS-Friday challenge (to use a border punch)...I think it's Clean and Simple...don't you?
