Hi everyone!!  I know I haven't been blogging lately--I just haven't been creating much.  But I had a crafty weekend with some fun ladies this weekend so I have a few things to show.  But 2 projects are for DT work for August.

Here's a card and another small project that I can show you :)

This is a birthday card that I made for a work friend.  I used the new Cricut Artiste Cartridge that you can order today.  The banner is chipboard from the kit you get with the cartridge and the happy birthday comes from one of the 3 stamp sets.  Paper is from the Green Tea Stack and the leaf is also cut out of leaf paper in the pack too.  I also used some Blue Berry Trendy Twine, pop dots and a Cricut cut for the flower.

Next I have a cut from the cartridge.  My friend Kimi from the group this weekend had this great idea when she saw this cut in my handbook.  It's a great twine holder!!  I cut them at 3 inches and they were perfect for some mini packs of Trendy Twine that I had getting all knotted up in a box.  I cut the slit in the top with some scissors to mirror those small floss holders.

If you would like to order this cartridge, I can help you!! I became a consultant just a few weeks ago because of this cart :)  You can click on my order link to the right or send me a message.  I can give you a 20% discount if you mention being a blog follower if you order through email.  Here's a picture of everything that you get for $99 (regular price without discount)--it's such a great deal!!

Have a great day everyone!!!
