Wild Card Cricut

I have been looking to buy a Cricut machine for about three years now but I didn't want to spend all that money.  About two weeks ago Cutting Edge Crafts website finally had it at the price I wanted to pay a Cricut Original for £129.95 so I just had to have it.  What a fantastic machine it is boy am I having fun with it.  To make sure I use it often I have decided to enter the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog every week.  So here is my first creation.

  7. For your first cricut card you did an awesome job. I peeked at some for your stamped cards, and you are very good. I can't color so I envy any of you crafters who can. I am your newest follower, I am not as good as you but I would love for you to visit. Pam at

  8. I LOVE your card design and the shaped front over patterned paper -- I'm going to try one using your technique and hope mine turns out close to as cute ;-)

    Enjoy your Cricut -- I can't imagine life w/out it or the Gypsy. Now I'm debating my "need" for a Cuttlebug and watching for a great deal on those.
