Oh My Crafts

I recently purchased the Cricut Expression machine, and at the same time i purchased a pre-order item. It states in policy that if you buy a pre-order item that your other items will not ship until your pre-order item is ready to ship. Today I received an email from Oh My Crafts informing me that they had SHIPPED my order, and will send the pre-order item in Mid-December when it comes in. Let me tell you I was doing a happy dance. The machine is my Christmas present, and my hubby thought it only fair that i did not get it until it was closer to Christmas... I am so excited. I have bought all my cartridges from Oh My Crafts, as i find them to ship quickly, and the Customer Service staff (Dani) are always helpful. They even changed my order for me when i noticed i ordered the wrong item. They go out of their way to make sure us customers are happy. Make sure you check out their site.

Apple basket/purse

I just have one thing to show you today.

This Criss Cross Box was made using SU Designer paper, Real Red, and Old Olive
cardstock. Each tag is scrapped with pictures of Madison's birth.

I cut this purse out from the Tags, Bags, Boxes & More Cricut Cartridge. I included a window, added a SU flower and metalic green brad. I added a matching tag to the ribbon handle.

Two Christmas Cards

Just two simple cards today. This one the trees were stamped with champagne chalk ink. The deer cut out from the Christmas Cricut cartridge, Merry Christmas stamped and cut out, and the clear snowflake with a brad in the middle.

Horse Ride

I had my brother in mind for this one. He loves horses, and shoes horses as his trade.

My Disney Card Candy submission

I joined a Disney Card Candy swap on SCS, and this is what I will be sending. You can see my Racoon cocoa holder I made for another swap on the left side.

My Cricut Christmas card

The reindeer are from the new Christmas cartridge, and the background was embossed with the snowflake cuttlebug folder. I torn paper and sponged so the deer had something to stand on.

Cocoa holder Swap

I joined a cocoa/teabag holder swap, and this is my submission for the cocoa holder. I tried for a more masculine look.

Birthday Calendar

I have been working on this for three days. I wanted to make a calendar that can be used each year, and sit on my desk nicely. Ha ha.. like i have any room for one more thing =)

So this is what I came up with, but it still needs some kinks worked out. I would appreciate anyones input. It is to heavy and wants to tip over. I glued some wood blocks to the bottom to keep it from tipping over.
