Hi everyone from a damp and cold Somerset.

Some good news this week.  I have been asked to be a guest designer for the Cutie Pie Blog.  I am really excited about this.  The first challenge goes live on the 19th September.  Please be sure to check us out and join in.

Below is the first project I made this week with my new toy.  My fantastic hubby purchased a Cricut Expression and some cartridges for me last week and they arrived last Friday.  Although I had to wait until Monday (he needed to make space in his office for my machine) to be able to play with it.

The card is a girls birthday card.  It is an easel card.  I have used the Cricut to make the backing paper shape, the doily and the internal message on the card.  The decoupage is Tulip.  The Doily has trees cut into it which blend really well with the lovely Japanese card in which Tulip is walking.  The card used for the doily is a Papermainia cardstock, the blue backing paper is from the Tulip range.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

  1. bunny zoes crafts challenge No 15 Easel Cards

  3. Make it Monday Challenge No 53
