and CUT!


So pleased, received my Cricut this morning-yippeeee!!!, but first took part the DCM challenge, which was this..

and CUT!!!
We've all loved looking at all your beribboned cards for Christmas and how you've cooked up the Little Extra Recipe. As for who's won the luscious ribbon giveaway, we're going to keep you in suspense a little longer!

This week its Tracie setting the dare and it is to make a card and CUT!
Any theme goes, so for those of you needing a break from Christmas crafting this is the perfect opportunity to have a change. All styles are welcome but there MUST be an element of handcutting somewhere. It could be a greeting, a shape, letters printed on your pc and hand cut, anything goes as long as you did it by hand.

Oh well I'll have to play with the Cricut later.......So I hand cut the blooms, letters and scalloped strip.
Papers are Pink Petticoat (as are the templates I used for the blooms and letters)
Ribbon is from Ribbon Oasis
Brads from my shop.

Had parents evening in the week. I am so proud of Riley. His teacher said that he was very bright, really keen to learn and always puts his hand up to answer the questions. He may have to have a bit of speech therapy though, as he is getting a little lazy with his words. All in all, I left feeling really chuffed!!! As you never really know how children behave when they are not with you. He was also V.I.P today, so was very pleased with himself. I am so reassured by the fact that he skips into school each day beaming from ear to ear - long may it continue!!!!!!
