Great service

Look at how my cricut design studio and spatula came wrapped :) how cute is that? If you want to check out Hazel's shop click here

perhaps I'm just easily pleased, but I love little touches like this.

Happy Birthday to me

Well it was my Birthday on Sunday, I received some gorgeous cards which I just had to share, you may notice a couple of anniversary cards - it was also my 13th wedding anniversary on the same day :)
I received 2 new carts for my cricut and some money which I have used to buy the design studio for the cricut as I have been playing with the trial and the 'weld' feature is great, so hopefully I will get that tomorrow :) here are my cards.

A big hug to everyone who sent me a card there are a lot of ideas I will be 'borrowing' there!

Speedy post

I cant believe where all the time goes :( The first time I sat down tonight was about 9.30. I've done a bit on catching up with blogs (admittedly that took a while) but thats another evening gone.. ah well.
I thought I would share a card made with the help of my cricut (again)

I think the image is High Hopes which I used the cricut to cut the scalloped edge and the same for the mount, the paper is a download from Sweetshoppe with Prima daisies and a bellas bauble, the sentiment is printed from pc.
thanks for looking

What gorgous weather we're having in the UK at the moment. Well hopefully I have finally got the pc sorted out - no dodgy popups :)
I have realised that I have never shown the pictures of the wedding invites so here they are. I can't take credit for the layout, it was by Stamping Caz for Beautiful Cards

We made 50 of both colours then made an extra 10 as they had miscounted !!

And here is the acceptance I made with my cricut.

The stamp is by Stampendous, each card was embossed using a cuttlebug folder on the bigshot and rubbed over with a white ink pad, the images were coloured with watercolour paint and H20's. The acceptance has got a embossed vellum sleeve with a shrink plastic image and the wording and envelope were made with the cricut.
Hope you are enjoying the weekend :)

Darn computer !!

I have just spent the last 4 days doing every spyware/anti-virus/adware scan known to man !! My 'puter got infected Thursday and everytime I went on the net I got loads of dodgy pop-ups aaargh, why oh why do people do this ? Finally today I tried AVG and after nearly an 8 hour scan it seems to have sorted the problem, lol there goes my cricut playing time. Talking of which does anybody know if the cartridges are the same in the USA as they are here in the UK? as in can I order one from the USA? Just need to let hubby know which cartridge I want for my Birthday now - and where to get it from :)
Hope you all had a great weekend (extended holiday in UK) and hopefully I will have some pics for you soon :)
