I Caved

I totally did! I went out and bought the Texture Boutique. I couldn't wait any longer. Didn't I tell you my nickname is "Instant Gratification Girl???" OK, so the only person who calls me that is me, LOL. It's true, though. Have you seen this giveaway at Cricutology's blog? Go there and comment to win one of these!! She's also got some fabulous videos and has given me some great tips!I entered a few days ago. If by some miniscule chance I win, I will give it to my stepdaughter. She has become just as obsessed as me with the card-making. My husband and I have already decided she'll get her own small Cricut for her birthday. She was so sweet the other day and said to me, "Shauna, I love doing crafts with you." How sweet is she??

Here's the first card I made with the Texture Boutique. Don't forget that the Cuttlebug folders work with this thing! Right now I only have two folders, so I'm definitely in need of some more. This card was really quick and I used the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge and I can't remember where I got the font for the 'thanks.'


Yes, it's red and yellow again. I didn't do that on purpose, it just worked out that way. :) This card was VERY simple. I added teensy pearls and ribbon to embellish the dress.  I think this would make a really cool set of cards in different colors. 

I am getting closer to 200 followers!! How exciting! When I finally reach 200, I'll be posting a giveaway, so stay tuned! ;)

Oh how well I know the instant gratification thing, LOL! Sometimes I'm more of a collector than crafter :-) Love the color combo. Congrats on your Texture Boutique!!

I love my Texture Boutique ALMOST as must as my Cricut!!! It just adds SO much to the card. I like to also add some kind of coordinating embossing (if I can) to the envelope...usually the back flap. It seems to just really pull the whole card together! I can't wait to see your next project!

Finally! I've been trying to "follow you back" but every time I would get on to do it the followers tab was "out of order." I don't know why, but that happens alot to me. I don't know if it's blogger or my computer-probably a little of both. Anyway, thanks for becoming a follower & thanks for the sweet comments.
I didn't realize that was 'you' on the Pink DT. Congratulations! I loved the little birds & birdhouse you did the other day, (just didn't know it was you at the time. lol)
