Some Cricut fun

Have I said how much I LOVE my Cricut Expression?  It is like there is just no limit to the images and words you can cut and it is just too much fun.

 I used the Cindy Loo cartridge to cut this wonderful design. It just seemed like the perfect answer to go along with The Play Date Cafe color challenge for this week.
 I cut the image out three times and then used portions of each of the colors to complete my design. I stamped a writing stamp with gray ink behind it, I loved how that set it off.
 Is this color combo amazing????
 And, here is my card for the Card Positioning Systems sketch.  I pulled out a big pad of paper that I picked up at Michaels, it is by Recollections.
 These flowers are cut out of one of the pieces of patterned paper in the pad and accented with a little bit of Liquid Pearls.
Sometimes I just like to cut out images from the Cricut to see what they look like and to figure out what sizes work good for them. I had cut this piece with three cut out hearts a few days ago and thought it was a fun accent to my card.


Here is the sketch I used. I kind of did a condensed version but that is what a sketch is all about, making it your own.
Gotta share one photo...
We wemt to a local TruckFest this weekend, an occasion just made for little boys. I'll share a few more pics later.

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

I like the CPS card entry, but I love the PDCC one. It has the German paper cut feeling that I love. Blessings!

That color combo was so very cool and different. You picture is lovely and so is your CPS card. I think those hearts were the perfect accent.

He looks so happy in that truck. Too cute.

Thanks for giving me the heads up on the Kreaxions win. I'm so excited.
