This in not at all my usual style, but when I saw these cut files at I knew it was the perfect birthday card for a friend. It was surprisingly easy to cut and fun to put together. I think it will bring on some good memories and probably a few laughs.

Isn't that little tiny poodle great!  I remember having a poodle skirt, hand-me-down from a cousin, I'm old but not that old...  I loved wearing it, it was so much fun to twirl in!

The glitter paper is some cheap stuff that I picked up when I got my first Cricut.  It did not cut well then (perhaps I didn't know what I was doing), but it cut beautifully on my Cameo today.  I made the envelope also, from a pattern that came with the card.  It came out nicely.  The rest of the papers were other things that I've had laying around for a long time.  I'm trying not to buy more!

Now if I can convince my printer to talk to my computer and therefore my Cameo, I'm hoping to try a print and cut this week.  Wish me luck!

Thanks for looking! Have a nice week.
