First Cricut Page.

Man, I love this tool! I am so impressed with how well that thing cuts! I did this page last week, waiting for my Cricut to arrive. I than cut out my title, the trees, stocking and the ornaments. I was working on another title for a different page when I lost power last night. But I just love how this page turned out! I was amazed watching it cut each letter, and stuff. Love how it'll layer things. I barely touched what this machine can do, and will have fun learning more things on it. So, here's my first work of art with it! The trees are layered with the polka dotted pattern paper. And the cutting out of the ornaments is so detailed!

Side topic, we had a nice Nor'easter come thru yesterday. Kids were off school yesterday and today. Paul was in GA at Home Office, and got trapped there, because the weather was so bad. The bridge outside my neck of the woods is flooded, so we can't cross to the peninsula from there. Paul has now made it back to our area, but has to take the long way home, because of the bridge. We lost power about 8 last night, and it kicked back on around 2 this afternoon. We have a generator, but it hadn't been used, and not something I knew how to operate. So, my neighbors came and set it up for me, so I could plug back up the fridge and freezer. Than I put on the tv to give the kids something to do, other than fight!
Other supplies: DCWV cardstock, pattern paper, TAC stamp, SU garden green ink, stickles, nesties, Queen and Co brads.
