Make a wish birthday card made using the Yummy cartridge and the Cricut Imagine

Hello, everyone!

I hope none of you have played victim to any practical jokes today. I totally dislike April Fool's day. I used to work with a bunch of men who made it their mission every year to celebrate this holiday at my expense. Good times...

What a crazy busy week!I have two exams next week, so I have a very busy weekend ahead of me. I will be so glad when the summer gets here! I need a break.

How awesome was that imagine sale? Did any of you cave and buy it? If you did let us know what you think about the machine when you get it. I just love mine and hope that you like yours as well!

Today's card is made using my Imagine and the Yummy cartridge. My baby niece turns 4 next month and this cartridge has a lot of great cuts for birthday cards or layouts!

I cut the cake out at 4". I also cut extra candles out so I could have 4 instead of 3.
I cut 'make a wish' out at 1".
Thanks so much for stopping by this week!

Be sure and check out Joy's and Melanie's personal blogs for more creative goodness at Obsessed with Scrapbooking and Courtney Lane Designs!

Have a great weekend!

LilGreenBug said...

Sweet card, Melanie!! I got my Imagine at the launch and love it with one exception: I want to print and cut chipboard!!! I still have to use my Expression to cut chipboard and it would sure be nice to be able to print and cut it on the Imagine! Guess you can't have everything, huh?
Hugs!

Love the cake card girls it looks so yummy! I didn't take advantage of the sale on the Imagine, I just got my first Cricut Expression! Yah!!! No I didn't wait for the Expression 2, maybe should have but was so excited to get the bigger machine that when I got a deal I took it. Of course it took some convincing on dh, but, I won! Gotta love tax returns!

Works From The Attic by Linda said...

What an adorable card! Your niece will love it. As for April Fool's Day, I can't say I hate it as it is my birthday. I do however tend to get more jokes and pranks than most people because of that fact. I always laugh and say "at least *I* have a reason for being a fool"! lol
Have a happy day, and may no one pull any pranks on you!
