My Black Friday steals!!

So I ventured out at midnight last night!!  I went to Wal-Mart to get the $20 cricut carts...and I bought 3 of them!!!  Plus I bought my daughter a bike for $29!!  I picked up the Jolly Holidays, Four Legged Friends, and the Twinkle Toes (so so cute)!

I am pretty pleased with my purchases and can't wait to get time to play with them!!  Look out in the near future for post using these cartridges!!  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday!!

"Give Thanks" Banner

Hello Everyone!!

I fell in love with some of the banners that were displayed in the recent Banner Blog Hop!!  I had to make my own!!

The process of making one of these took a while for me as it was my first time!  But I am totally hooked now, lol!  They are so fun to make...

For my banner I used several different cartridges.  The tag shape was from TBBM, the letters are from Plantin Schoolbook and the swirls are from Gypsy Wanderings.  I bought a pack of fall colored flowers at Hobby Lobby to add some dimension to the banner.  To string the banner, I used Hemp cord from Wal-Mart...Enjoy and let me know what you think!!

Throwback Thursday Challenge -"Food"

This week Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge is a Food themed project...I used this popsicle from the Doodlecharms cartridge...Love Doodlecharms!!

Sorry for the blurry camera is having an off day, lol...I just couldn't get it to focus right...It may be the photographer too, lol.  But this is as good as I could get.  Anyway, I used the Threading Water punch on the top and bottom.  And added the green and pink coordinating ribbon...I had fun with this card!!

Happy Birthday Cupcake

Well, it's Friday night and my girls are in bed, finally!!  I actually made this card for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge then I realized I couldn't because I used the NEW Smiley Cards cartridge!!  Oh well, I couldn't wait any longer to use this cart!!  It's soooo much fun!!

Anyway, hope you all like it!!
Have a great weekend!
