Another weekend is here!  HOORAY!!!  My favorite time because I get to do an extra amount of crafting :)  Here is a Thanksgiving card I made with the new Cricut Thanksgiving cart!  I really like the images on this cart!  Thanksgiving is about simplicity to me, and I like how simple this card was!

I can't wait for Thanksgiving to go to my aunts house, have a great meal, and get to see lots of family!  What are you all up to for Thanksgiving?

Here is a fun card I made with the Imagine this weekend.  I used Imagine More and Best Friends!  I also added some little buttons and am going to add it to the Imagine Nation Monday Challenge.

CC Ornament

Here is an ornament I made for the Cricut Circle ornament challenge.  The challenge was to make an ornament with 4 cuts on the Cricut and another Provo Craft tool.  I choose to use the Cuttlebug for my other tool. 

I really wanted to make something 3D so here is what I came up with!  The snowflakes are all from the When It's Cold Outside cartridge.  I picked my favorite snowflake and cut the black out version twice and the overlay 4 times all at 4".  I then put the overlay on both sides of the blackout version and cut slits up the middle to be able to connect them together.  I used embossing powder to cover the paper and make it a shiny snowflake!!!  I then cut 3 smaller snowflakes from 3/4" to 1.5" and embossed them with the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.  They are hanging from the large snowflakes with fishing wire.  I really like the finished product and the look that the embossing I did gave the ornament!  I am officially in the Christmas mood :)
