As wild as I get :)

So some of you may remember, after my friend WilloDean passed away last October, her daughters bought me a Cricut Expressions. I know, way cool. I am so thankful. This year, Brenda and I attended a 101 class and I went to a Swarm. (A bunch of Cricut users craft together.) Fun! The event was hosted by Tara Vu, owner of Personal Scrapbook in Allen Texas. I think it was pretty apparent, I'm not much of a scrapbooker. Within a few days Tara emailed me to be sure I knew of a Cricut cartridge called Wild Card. I did not know but Tara was kind enough to order it for me.

This is my first real attempt to use it. I coupled it with the Color Throwdown # 32. I like it ok, but after the first picture, I thought it needed something. The ribbon I tried,ugh! So, I moved on to my ever favorite ~ glitter. Ta da. The matching envelopes look so fun but this one comes with blades of grass, a little unfriendly for snail mail. Oh well, nothing's perfect! ;) Happy Saturday!
