I Love My BUG!

My sweet husband was with me the only time I saw a Cricut demonstrated. He was so impressed that he turned and said, "How come you don't have one of these things? This is the kind of tool that I'd want if I were you." My reaction, "Humm...me and a Cricut? Yep, I would use one of those." Big SMILES! So for Christmas I found myself the proud owner of my very own Cricut!

It wasn't until we came home from the holidays that I was able to actually touch and play with my new tool. I didn't want to waste any of my expensive paper on my first go around so I choose some paper that I hadn't used for a long while. I was surprised with the outcome. The card, envie, and flowers were the first to be cut. I think that the only thing that will limit me with the endless uses of this machine is my imagination. OH WHAT FUN! Blessed indeed!

Another blessing has been getting to know everyone with Queen Kat Designs. I used stamps from QKD's upcoming release called "Feeling Blocks" to make this card and matching envelope. Their acrylic stamps are truly unique in that they are thick like rubber and sticky. This makes them really easy to stamp with and I just LOVE them!

Thank you Andrew for my BUG and thank you Queen Kat for the stamps.

Cool card, Nancy! I don't know what Vicki does when she makes her stamps, but they are my favourite clear stamps ever! They grab my dye inks so nicely - the first clear stamps I've been able to use my dye inks with. Love them!
Lucky you with the Cricut! Have fun playing with it :)
