Train card for birthday boy

Happy Birthday to Colter!  I figured you can't go wrong with a vehicle of some description for a 3 year-old boy. 

Here's my tri-fold card using Cricut cartridges "My Community" for the train and "Celebrations" for the sentiment.

New resolve

I had a deep delve into my paper stash and was horrified.  Despite the appearance of vast volumes of paper, I actually have very little I like/will use and lots of scraps that aren't enough to make another layout. 

So I have made a new resolution.... I will do a layout and then with the scraps , I will make cards from it straight away (if there is not enough to save for another layout).

I'm feeling quite good about this new outlook - to rid my stash of scraps and then I'll have to buy more paper, right???

Here's my first attempt at the scrap stash de-clutter.....

Pony party

A friend asked me to make her some pony invitations for her daughters 5th birthday. 

I used Cricut cartridge 'Create a Critter' and modified the horse (I really just chopped its legs off!!!).  I mounted it on a stick (like one of those 'ride-a-pony' toys), and added a ribbon bridle.

17 ponies!
