My New Toy!!!!

Wow, it has been months since I've posted, and really pretty much that long since I've had some time to craft. My usually overflowing stash of cards has been completely depleted and instead of focusing on Christmas, I needed to get some much needed birthday cards created. I can't tell you how great it feels to be creating something again. Sometimes I forget just how therapeutic, my hobby is.

What about my new toy you say??? Well let me tell you! One of my best's and I went down to the CRAZINESS of black Friday this past week and I picked up the Cricut Imagine for a mere $187.00! Even better is that I've already sold off my baby bug and a few carts and completely recouped the cost! So now my craft room is abuzz with both the expression and imagine! I've been very fortunate (unlike the majority) to have no problems with my new machine so I was able to start creating last night. So here is my handy work.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Patterned:Little Yellow Bicycle
Diecuts: Cricut Imagine and Imagine More Cartridge
Stamps:None on front, Inside sentiment says: They say it's your birthday!
I love this one for a guys bday. So easy! I cut the ruler layer in addition to the base and popped it up as well as the man with the megaphone:)

This was actually the first, hot of the press card I made. I kept it simple because I wanted to see if my new baby worked!
Supplies Used:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific, Bazzill (brown)
Patterned: Cricut Imagine More Cart
Stamps: SU
Diecut: Simply Charmed Cart
Bling: Irock by imaginesce

 Card #3 and perhaps my favorite. I made this for my Stepmom's birthday. She'll be getting it a week late but better than never:)
Supplies used:
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific white
Patterned and die-cut: Cricut Imagine and Imagine more Cart
Stamp: SU
Ribbon and twine: SU
Bling: Irock
Buttons: Random stash

Not sure if anyone is still around after all this time but thanks for stopping in if you are!
