Brad's birthday card and a card for a special friend using my new cricut expression.



This is a birthday card I did for our eldest son.  I also had fun making a certificate/gift voucher thingy that told him we had organised a subscription for the 4 x 4 action magazine.  It is all about four wheel driving, so know he will love to get that each month for a year.  The card above this one, was make for a very special friend using the new cricut expression that dear Grant bought for me.  It was fun making this card and envelope too using lots of the things available that it can do.  We are still learning and there is so much much more it can do depending on what cartidges you buy, but the two that come with the machine have plenty on them for us for now, but I know what I will be wanting for christmas and birthday........ money towards getting different new cartidges.... LOL this could prove expensive, but fantastic.
Hope you all had a great weekend.  The weather was lovely even tho it was quite windy and another day today is beautiful and no wind.

Hey Rel! I love your recent creations! The cards are wonderful & the scrapbook pages are just lovely. I'm a big fan of your beautiful clean style! It really adds to your photos nicely. That Cricut looks like great fun. You're a lucky girl!

Hi again Rel, Great cards! and a magazine subscription is a fabulous idea! I might 'borrow' it because my John's birthday is coming up and i can't think of anything to get him. he likes the 4x4 mags with roothy in them... do you get that one over there?
take care xx

Both of your cards are great! I have a special place in my heart for that DSP on the little bench card, though. It's one of my favorites. I LOVE how you put it all together. So cheerful and fun! Great scrapbook pages, too. You are motivating me to finally scrapbook some of the photos that keep piling up! :) Thanks for stopping by and sharing your sweet comments on my blog, too. Have a great day! :)

Great cards. I especially like how you cut out flowers to match the background.
