I'm Lovin' It.......

....and I don't mean McDonalds!

I am absolutely loving my new job! We are getting tons of new stuff in from CHA, and I must have it. I am also getting some Technique Tuesday stuff, and inks! I found out, we were the first store TT sold out of, and 2 of our employees are on the TT design team how cool is that? I haven't had time in the last few weeks to create anything new other than cards, but I am going to a crop this Saturday, so hopefully I will get some stuff done then, and I can share it with you. Until then, here is my Easter card and St. Patrick's Day card. They have gone in the mail, so if you haven't gotten yours, it is on the way.
The Easter card I made 6 different colors, based on the paper I found that had 6 different colored strips on it, so I got 12 cards out of each 12x12 sheet. I loved making these, and used my cricut of course, along with stickles for the dots/nose, brads for the eyes, and a glaze pen for the whiskers.

The St. Patrick's Day card, was made with my cricut as well, what a fun project. I used the Design Studio and my George Cartridge and used the odd-shaped heart 4 times, rotated them in 4 directions, used the "J", welded them together and voila, a shamrock! The rotations are 45, 135, -45, and -135 degrees. I also rotated my "J" -8 degrees to get it a little angled for the stem. I HAD to use stickles, used them to make the vein in the leaves. I am also really loving ric rac ribbon right now.

Only $60.00?!?!? I'm impressed with your self-restraint! Especially with all the new CHA goodies.
Oh, and you are a genius! My mom and I were debating about the shamrock. I can't wait to tell her that we were both right...it is hearts and it was from a die-cutting machine. Brilliant!!! :D

I am so HAPPY for you!! I can't even imagine what kind of damage I would do if I worked at a scrap store. They might as well pay me in product instead of money!!

THANK YOU for the beautiful St. Patty's Day card! I got it in the mail today, and it put such a huge smile on my face. It's so lovely. I'm really impressed with the Cricut DS. It does some awesome stuff!!

I'mso glad you are having such a good time at work! Are you working tomorrow? (friday) I need to pick up a couple of things for my Secret Bunny. Might as well see a friend in the process right?

I got my St. Patty's card yesterday. Thank you so much! I thought it was going to be the Easter one and I was so excited to show the hubs. I had told him all about it since I got a sneak peak at CKC. When I saw it was the St. Patty's one I was even more excited! It is so cute! I love the ribbon! I'm such a ribonaholic. (I don't think that's really a word but that's okay) ;)
