new love for my cricut and a challenge


Lucy's Cards Challenge #12 is to use buttons on a card... so here's my card! And yes, I am a compulsive button hoarder. I even have friends scoping out the great antique spots for me and bringing back the stash. (Thanks, Theresa!!!!) Gotta have the buttons!

I had fun breaking out the Cricut for this one. My favorite Cricut cartridge has always been New Arrival. I often have new baby or expectant mother cards to make, so it has always gotten a workout.

But, I just found a new favorite—the Sweethearts cartridge. It is chock full of great little pieces. Including the bubblegum machine I used in the card above. There are also umbrellas, dresses, scooters... it's officially adorable!


Thanks for stopping by to read my blog. If I have inspired you today, I hope that it is to dust off your Cricut and make something cute this weekend! Or break out the buttons! :)
