Circus Birthday Card

This card I have just completed for Maisie's 11th birthday in October. I have used the Carousel and Create a Critter cartridges on my Cricut for all the cuts except the Happy Birthday which is Paper Lace. It starts off as an A5 gatefold card. This opens out to reveal the Big Top with the dancing bear and jumping poodle either side. The big top drops down to reveal the elephant rider and the Happy Birthday. Add plenty of bling and sparkles and Voila!

Poker cards

Just a couple of cards I made recently in an effort to use some of my stash. Have had these papers and stickers for a few months and not really been inspired until recently.

Cruise picture frame

I decorated this picture frame for my best friend who has just been on a cruise around Spain and Italy. It was the holiday of a lifetime and I wanted to do her something special to commemorate it.
All the cuts are Life is a Beach which has got to be my favourite Cricut cartridge.

Disney Magic Kingdom

This is an almost straight lift from a layout shown on the Cricut messageboard, but I loved it to much I had to have a go. I have used American Crafts paper and also the Mickey and Friends cart for the car, ears, Disney wording and signpost. The road came from Everyday Paper Dolls.
We love the Magic Kingdom and have been many times, so it is a challenge to get the photo's different, so here I have gone for scenery and not a character in sight!

Tractor Girl

Having not been able to blog for a while due to family bereavement and job issues, I am now back on track and have refound my craft mojo, so here is my first card. I used Country Life and some American Crafts papers to make a tractor card for a very glamourous 17yr old who loves farming
