Birthday cards

Well my birthday card stash is low so it's time to make some more. My new cricut imagine is worth it's weight in gold!! My favorite feature so far is that I can take an image from one of my existing cricut carts and resize and color them with one of the imagine pattern carts. In this case I chose an ice cream cone from the potpourri basket cart and colored them with the imagine Elise pattern cart. It's soooo easy and just buying white paper is going to save storage space in my craft room. Instead of doing all the cuts on different colored paper, they were all made on the same piece of white paper at the same time The tag on the card is from a set of images that came already stored in the imagine another great feature!!!! So here is what I made.........

My new cricut imagine

My wonderful hubby got me the cricut imagine for Christmas and I love it already. It took some doing to get my gypsy to talk to the imagine but it's all worked out now. I decided to get going on my birthday card stash because it's getting really low so this is the first thing my imagine and I created together. I rather like it. All I did was pick the cuts the sizes and the patterns load the imagine with white paper and it did the rest.....FABULOUS!!!!

I'm so excited this Christmas. I finally found the perfect gift for my husband. He loves bacon so much that he buys it by the whole pig. I was watching food network the other night and Michael symon was talking about this great deli that has a bacon of the month club. I was so excited I got out my laptop to check out. Well I needed to make him a card to put the certificate in and I just got two new cricut carts that were perfect. From my kitchen and country life. I hope he loves it as much as I think he will!!!!
