Merry and Bright card made using Winter Frolic

Hello, friends!

I hope you are all have a great week! Mine is going smashingly! I am getting excited about going to CHA! I love the show and stuff, but it is also a chance to see some of my favorite peeps like Susan Edwards, Mandy Ferg, and Diane Payne(Capadia). I am positively thrilled. We are gonna have a blast!


Ok on to the card, I made it using the new Winter Frolic cartridge. I was worried I would have a hard time making a Christmas card this early. Then I remembered all the zillions I made this time last year for Christmas with the Cricut. I fell right back into the groove! It helped that I had this really fun cartridge to work with though!



I cut this little Christmas Pudding at 4 1/4". I just think this is the cutest cut! Triple love it!



This stamp is from Close To My Heart. The paper is October Afternoon.



Have a wonderful day!!

Great card.

Luv 2 Create said...

So very cute. Love the sparkel you added to frosting. I wish this cart for Christmas had a little less cutesy and some more grown up on it thou. I was a little dissappointed. But can't please everyone. I am sure, if I actually took a closer look at all cuts on this cart, I will probably find that there is much more to it that I just haven't seen. You and Joy prove that to me all the time.
Thanks.
