Crikey Creations

" I have no desire or need for a cricut.." That's what I would say to myself or others every year. My thought and words were mostly to convince myself that it was a major WANT and not a NEED. I would think things like i have a sizzix and that's good enough or i'll just use my friends'. I love that friends are so willing to share, but at the same time you have to wonder what projects could be finished right NOW!! I mean do you know how much planning is involved? You can't just simply have 1 or 2 things cut-Lets make the most of our time by finishing mmultiple projects. Have you ever gotten that guilty feeling because you think you friends are just being nice to you when in fact you've interrupted their day? Yeah, I always wonder and therefore my mind never quits worrying. Rationalization is something that gets me through wanting ALL craft aides that I think I need. So, needless to say -I was ECSTATIC when I get this lovely little machine for Christmas. The wheels are already turning and plans are developing. But what first?? Feburary is the first month I have time to use it-VOILA!!
here is the WELCOME sign that has graced the front door for weeks. I was able to use this miracle machine and cut different size hearts for the background. Do you know how great it is to get the SAME heart in different sizes?? Layer the hearts togather, add the w-e-l-c-o-m-e letters, some ribbon with a white rub-on, and done-yeah this baby took all of 3 hours to finish. NOW- THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKIN' BOUT.
