Good Morning! How are you? Happy Wednesday!
A week from today, I will be "50"! Yep the big five-o!!!!
And I've been wining about it a lot. And I don't mean the good kind of wine either. LOL When I went home for lunch yesterday I checked my mail and saw an envelope with some sort of card in and I thought what can this be. Maybe a gift card since it's nearly my birthday. So with all the excitement I could muster, I opened it and guess what was inside of it......an application for AARP! Really people, I still have a week left before I turn 50 is it necessary to remind me that I am getting older! Of course I had to call my Mom and she thought it was the funniest thing as did my co-worker and my DH! Me...not so much!
So how many of you still love Cricut and still own your very first Cricut Cutting Machine? I do!
I really don't use it much anymore but I still have the Cricut Expression I purchased back in 2009 when that m
achine was all the rave. Of course there have been many more Cricut machines since then, the Expression 2, the Imagine, Cricut Air so on and so forth. Well I have the Expression, the Imagine and the Expression 2. My Imagine is packed away in a closet somewhere, my E2 which I normally use decided tonight it didn't want to work anymore, it is tired but my original Expression is still going strong. LOL
With that being said, I looked around my craft room and I have over 100 Cricut cartridges collecting dust so I thought I would pull one down and use it today.
I choose the Creative Holiday Cards cartridge and this is what I made:
I cut it just as the insert suggested using pretty much the same colors because I liked the look. Of course I inked around the edges and added a little bit of ribbon. My card was cut at 5 1/2 inches.
