Hi everybody, thank you for taking the time to check my cards. I have been very busy this weekend doing cards for some swaps. The first swap I have completed was to use my cricut. I have had my cricut for about 2 years and honestly have never really used it. So out it came, and did I have fun. There are quite a few pics that I hope you enjoy. Now I just want to use my cricut all the time, but other swaps are calling me, so I have to get busy with those, and also some mothers day cards to be done.

This is a card I did and the background paper is a sheet I got from our dollar store. The stamp is from Michaels. The cute images I got from Retro Cafe. I love their images.

Well this weekend I made some easter cards. The top picture on the left are small cards that I made for the ladies in my office, and idea I got from Helga at Artchix. Thanks Helga. 3 of the cards are made using art from Artchix and the Just Hatched I did using my cricut. I had so much fun making these. I am really hoping to get more time to craft now that our dance festivals and my sons kiwanis is a thing of the past. This last week I did get my first art swap cards in the mail, that was very exciting. I love seeing what everybody does on the computer but actually being able to touch and see up close was amazing. I will defintely be doing more swaps. I also earned my first Gingersnap badge, which had me even more excited. Amazing. Have a wonderful art day!

This week I decided that instead of getting myself very stressed out doing swaps which I am new to, that I would go back to basics, which is actually where I still am. I seem to have dived into the deep end before getting used to the paddling pool. So I got out my stuff and just enjoyed creating for myself. Stamping images, colouring them in, which I have never done before. As I did not have any markers I used what I did have which were the coloured spots from Stampin Up and my watercolour pencils. I then cut them out and used them on cards. I have a few more ready and will be doing some more cards this week. I also took out my Cricut, which I have hardly ever used and got cutting. I only have 4 cartridges but I was able to really get alot of different images cut out. Because everybody seems to be using the die cutting machines, I felt my Cricut was obsolete before I had even tried it. But I discovered it can really be quite versatile. So this week, I decided to explore what I had instead of going out and spending money on new things. Have a wonderful week crafting and I will hopefully have something to show you this week
