Wild Card Cartridge ~ Lovin it!

Just got this Cartridge in the mail and I am pretty sure I am going to LOVE it!  This adorable card, made with Bo Bunny Double Dot from Lil Lambs Boutique and scraps, took me under 15 minutes to make from start to finish!  What fun!

I was pokin around Ebay the other day...

looking for something entirely different and found the most delightful retired Stampin Up set!  It is called "Fabulous Fruit" and I  love it!  The phrase is from a Clear Dollar set called Fruity fun.  The Graphically Speaking Cricut cartridge has the greatest spiral notebook page type cuts in lots of fun shapes, perfect for adding some texture to cards.  Isn't this a sweet little card?

Fall in North Dakota

There are several things I love about fall in North Dakota, the crisp air, homecoming at the highschool, the sound of the leaves rustling across the sidewalks and dancing in the wirlwinds, big pots of soups and stews simmering on the stove, Halloween and Thanksgiving! But I gotta say my absolute favorite thing about fall is the sound of the geese honking overhead as they fly in their V patterns, returning to warmer grounds. It reminds me of my mom. She so loved to sit on their deck and watch them leave each fall. I miss her so and it makes me giggle to think that honking geese bring her to mind. It would have made her giggle too! Yep, definately my favorite time of year!

Fun with the Cricut!

Culley is running for student council and here's the poster we came up with for his campaign!  I used George and Pooh font.  Alas; I don't yet have Everyday paper dolls, so I had to (dare I say it?) hand cut the rocket! We finished it off by putting last years school picture in the rocket window!
