Why Oh Why?

Good Tuesday Morning!!
OMGosh! I did it! I actually did it? I MUST be crazy but I did do it! What did I do? Well, first let me give you a little background. My wonderful husband bought me the very first Cricut that premiered in 2005! I hadn't crafted a thing since I was forced to take art in high school and we decoupaged some plaques. Let me tell ya, everyone in my life had always said I didn't have a crafting bone in my body. Well, in 2007 I finally opened that Cricut and fell in love!LOL! I immediately felt like I had outgrown it and bought the Cricut Expression! I was having the time of my life I could create bigger! Then the Pink Journey Expression debuted and I just had to have it. Well, we do have a cabin in the mountains of Colorado and I could always use the old Expression there. So, needless to say I was the proud owner of the new Pink Journey Expression! My old Expression did go to the mountain cabin where I thoroughly enjoy using it in the evenings after a day of fly fishin'! Last September Cricut came out with the new Imagine that not only cuts images but you can print your own designer paper! I was now the proud owner of the Imagine and I am in love with this machine! So, can someone tell me why, at approximately four minutes after 11:00 p.m. cdt I became the new owner of the brand new Cricut Expression2?

I couldn't even wait! I had to have it immediately! LOL! Well, I will let you know when it arrives and if I am a happy camper or not!

I made this cute little card for my darling granddaughter for Easter. I didn't get a chance to post as my family was all together and I didn't want to be away from them for even a second. I didn't get on the computer and absolutely no crafting! We had a blast and can't wait for Mother's Day as I think they are coming back! Isn't that fabulous? This card is made from Stampin' Up's Melon Mambo cardstock embossed with the new Framed Tulip embossing folder. I then punched a 1 3/4" circle with Stampin' Up's punch and a 2 3/8" scalloped circle with Stampin Up's punch. I added the round treat cups, filled it with m&ms and place it through the 1 3/4" circle and added my 2 1/2" scalloped circle. I added three little m&m and some Stampin' Up's yellow pom pom trim. I did place a piece of pink cardstock on the inside of the cover to cover the circle so the m&m would not spill out. My granddaughter loved it! What do you think? I would love to know what you think of my Easter card. Please leave a comment as I love to read your comments!

I would also like to remind everyone that we have a Copic Challenge going on at Simply Scrapping Crafts! We have some great prizes up for grabs so please hop on over and enter. I would love to see your creations!

Have a fantastic day! I am off to do some more creating!

Praying for your family and mine!

Big Hugs!
