A Cricut Howdy

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. I have to go get my flu shot this morning and then I have a super busy day at work so I'll make this post a short one.




For my card today, I decided to do something a little different. I have a Cricut machine and I LOVE it, but I use it mostly for scrapbooking. I decided to make a Cricut card today after being inspired by some blog surfing over the weekend. I actually used three Cricut cartridges on my card today. All papers are from SU. My grass was cut from the Paperdolls cartridge. I used the "Fit to Length" button and made my grass 5 1/4 inches. Next, I created the cowgirl using the Once Upon a Princess cartridge. I cut her at 3 1/4 inches. I used a Peachy Keen face stamp for her face and then I pop dotted her cowgirl hat. Finally, I created the horse from my Create a Critter cartridge. I cut him at 3 1/2 inches. I used my white gel pen for the dots and then for a finishing touch, I added some roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The sentiment is from MFT. This card is a standard A2 sized card. What do you think?

Well, that's it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my Cricut card. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!

This card just made me giggles Christine. Very cute and happy. Funny I have all the cartridges and stamp you used on this card but never thought of putting them all together. It's pretty cute looking at yours and now I know what I can play with when I get a free moment. Thanks for sharing!
