Nuts about U - Happy Anniversary

I created this card for my hubby April 26th for our 14th wedding anniversary! I think it turned out really cute. I hope you enjoy it too!
I used these Cricut cartridges:

Create a Critter for the squirrel cut @ 5, nuts cut @ 2, the phrase cut @ 2 and the large nut cut @ 3 1/4
Sweethearts for Happy Anniversary cut @ 2

Thanks for looking!

This is the inside where I used the Sweethearts cart.

All Star - Shine On

I created this card for my 9 year old daughter. Her school has requested that the parents send in a "surprise" note this week to be given to their child next week before taking the AIMS tests for encouragement. I wrote a little note in the inside.  I've been having to do a little here and there all week to get this done without my daughter seeing it...I hope she likes it and it gives her that little extra encouragement to get her through the tests next week!

I used these Cricut cartridges:

Wild Card for the star card and I made the coordinating envelop both cut at 5 1/2, embossed the pink star and used glitter glue to add a little shimmer

Sports Mania for the All Star cut at 1 1/4 and the shadow

Hannah Montana for the Shine On in the inside of the card which I created in Design Studio, welded and slanted it slightly and then I added Martha Stewart glitter (tourmaline)

Here's a couple more images:

Zebra Purse card

I finally figured out my Cricut Design Studio and went WILD!!! I made this card for my niece who is turning 17 today! I made all of my cuts in the DS. I will be putting a gift card in it as her gift!

I used these Cricut cartridges:

Wild Card for purse cut twice (zebra print and black) at 6 1/4, welded and stretched to fit. I used the black parts for the handles, the inside of purse, and flap

Locker Talk for the key cut at 2 and the MP3 player

Designer Calendar for the cellphone

Paper Doll Dress Up for the lipstick cut at 2

George and Basic Shapes for the nail polish which I took 2 shapes and welded them together to create the shape

This was by far my funnest project and I finished in a day(of course with Mom duty in the middle).

I want to give a special thanks to Michelle Petersen (on the mb) for the inspiration!

Here's a look at the inside of the purse and a little message.
