Good Morning my sweet crafty friends!  Wow!  What a whirlwind of a few weeks I've been having!  I have been crazy busy at work trying to close out the year!  I finally went Christmas shopping this past weekend and was able to get most everything I needed.  I think I have 3 gifts left to purchase!  WOO HOO!!!!!  I did get a Christmas tree on Saturday, which still isn't decorated! {GASP}  I did snag some pretty awesome deals at Michael's this past weekend in Christmas decor that is!  Can you believe I only bought a couple of cuttlebug folders and a paper piercer in the craft section!  What is wrong with me, I must be getting ill! LOL And finally.......I was able to play a little with my Imagine!  Look what I made!!!!!!  A simple Christmas card!  Yep still working on those! eeekkk!!!!!



I used Snow Angel Imagine Cartridge which I bought off of eBay for a really awesome price, I think it was less than $20 or maybe right at $20!  I'm not sure because I kinda went a little eBay crazy and purchased 4 Imagine carts!  Yeah, that's what I said 4!  But my sweet and wonderful boss gave me a really awesome Christmas bonus this year and I am having a great time spending it.  Tee Hee!!!!   Ok back to my card, it's 5 1/2 X 4 1/4 white card base.  My green layer which is SU DSP (sorry can't remember the name of it) is cut at 5 14 X 4.  And my top note die was cut using at 4 inches using the Imagine's pre-loaded cart and inked with SU Regal Rose and Blushing Bride ink.  My scallop circle was cut a 2 inches from the same pre-loaded cart on the Imagine!  The poinsettia was printed and cut at 3 1/2 inches using the Snow Angel Imagine Cricut Cart.  I have to say when I purchased the Imagine on Thanksgiving night and brought it home, it stayed in the box on my living room floor for a few days while I tried to decide if I really needed it more than just wanted it!  Especially since I have an Expression and an Expression 2!  Who needs 3 Cricuts right!  ME!!!!!!  I love my Imagine as much as my other machines and I've really only used it once!  But I think I like the idea of printing and not having to dig through all of my papers to find the correct color!  Can't wait to use it some more and explore all that it can do!   Sorry about the rambling! I know I keep getting off subject but I have so much to tell you guys!  hee hee  My Merry Christmas sentiment is from the "Winter Wishes" stamp set from K Andrew!  I have been using this stamp set like crazy what a great winter set to have!  There are so many sentiment combinations to be had!  It just takes a little imagination!  Click here to get your own set of stamps or to see what other great stamps she has available.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and say Hi!  I appreciate each and every one of you!
Until next time.......Happy Craftin'!
