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.


I am entering this in the following challenges:

Natalie and Amy's Challenge

Happy St. Pat's Day

Hello from snowy Montana! It was pretty wild here this morning with heavy snow and crazy winds. We didn't get as much storm as everywhere south of us and I understand that this is sliding east to cause others much more trouble. Good luck with it.

I made this car yesterday for a male friend who is in the hospital with pneumonia for the third time since Christmas. I was hoping it would cheer him up a bit. I used my Cameo and some beautiful patterned paper. The paper has a pearlized finish, very special.

I am entering this card in the Cameo Spotlight Challenge, a fun place to find some inspiration.

I hope those of you in the path of another winter storm make it through in good condition. And could the rest of you share a little Spring with us, please?
