Cardmaking - Simple Washi Tape card

Here is a simple card I made with Washi tape (that I got from Costco) and Sizzix Alpha Bubbles die (cut with my Sizzix Big shot) with textured white cardstock and plain black cardstock for the letters background. Letters are such a useful thing to do with leftover scraps of coloured paper!  My daughter helped me make it because it was for her teacher. This is a nice quick easy card - easy 10 minutes and we're done!

I got a Cricut Personal Cutter!

I admit, I already have a craft cutter - a Silhouette - but it's annoying to have to draw the stuff on my computer before I cut it.  Besides, Cricut has all these cute little cartridges and I bought one - Create a Critter - which had such cute animals I thought there were heaps of cards and projects I could make!

So when I got a second hand (and a bit broken) one on Ebay, I couldn't wait to make a few things, and here were the first ones I made:

There are heaps of ideas on Pinterest too, and I'm going to stick a few here so I don't forget and maybe try my hand at them sometime soon!
