Cricut Challenge 26: Winter Lace and Happy New Year to You!

Wow...2012.  Wow....It just seems like we were all dealing with that Y2K stuff not long ago.  Do you remember that?
I have been able to get back into my craft room the last couple of days for an hour here and have been working on a project which I hope to share in the next couple of days.  It's not quite finished...had hoped to finish it up today but we had the whole family here (my son, daughter, son in law and 2 grandkids) for our traditional southern New Year's dinner.  Black eyed peas, greens (we prefer turnips to collards), mashed potatoes, corn bread and ham.  We eat black eyed peas, greens and corn bread at New Years in the south for good luck.  The black eyed peas represent coins, the greens represent paper money and the corn bread represents gold.  I love old traditions.  Anyway, dinner was yummy and now we all have full tummies with good luck foods!
Anyway since the family was here I couldn't finish my little project so it will have to wait a day or so before I can share it with you.
Here are a couple of cards (bad angle, bad photos) of two cards I made with all Paper Trey Ink products.

I love the little penguin die and shared a card I made with him the other day.  He was so worth the price I paid for him...which I think was just $5.  He's just as cute as can be....the little coordinating stamp set is also inexpensive.
I made these cards for my kids as New Year's wishes.  I thought the cards turned out cute...I think they liked what was inside better! HAHA!
I did cut the snowflake with the Winter Lace Cricut Cartridge and WOOO HOOO...I haven't done a project with that cartridge here so I get to add this to my personal Cricut challenge of making a project with each Cricut Cartridge I own!  I am up to #26...that means I'm about 1/5 of the way there...and I keep acquiring more cartridges!
Life is good...
Well, tomorrow will be the day to take down the decorations and pack them up for another 11 months.  Haha...before you know it we will be dragging it out again!

Happy Crafting and Happy New Year!


  1. Those are cute cards and I love that little penguin- he is so cute! And I do remember the y2k stuff- I was at a family type party with my then young girls (I actually have a picture of all of us together)- my how they have grown since then and how it seems like yesterday.....
    Happy New Year!! :)Amy

  2. We had our share of black eyed peas, greens (we do not like turnips or collards so we had green beans) and corn bread at String Bean restaurant for New Year Day dinner. Here's hoping 2012 gets better after the bad start we had with our garage door opener breaking today when the belt stripped. Luckily hubby bought & installed new one from Home Depot. Especially like the sparkle & ribbon of the Penguin card with the snowflake cutout.

  3. Great card, glad you all had a nice New Year, we spent yesterday taking down decorations although there are still a few outside. Happy New Year!

  4. Yep, we're all about turnip greens,too, Susan. I never thought about that, but I wonder which is more popular.


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
