Cute little house

Isnt this cute?

A couple of weeks ago I got the new Cricut Cartridge Winter Woodland, which has a few yummy christmassy things on. Well I got otherwise distracted by a calendar class I am doing tomorrow, and so only got to play with it yesterday evening.

On the cart are a few 3d buildings. You make up the outer in one colour, the liner in another and slot it inside. Well with it being halloween I thought I would just make the outer and line it with tissue paper and put a tea light in.

Well, its very tiny - only about 3" at the longest bit, and so no one is going to see it if I sit it on the windowsill. So, I think a very big piece of card, and the 12x24" mat is called for and I'll try another version for Christmas.

So watch this space....

O and for those of you who are coming to the class, dont worry the car is all packed up!

Blimey, I had no idea it was that long since I last blogged, but sure enough its a month! Well I have only one excuse I was really busy doing stuff for 2scrapladies. However I am off work this week and so have a little more time - ah who am I kidding, I am up to my ears in kits and the cricut is red hot, but while it cuts the latest set, I can blog a little.

So as you can see in the photo there is no sign of the desk, but I seem to recall that once apon a time there was one in my office. Aparently there is a nice laminate floor underneath too, but that is currently covered in tiny snippets of paper, green and yellow velvet paper fuzz and glitter from the glitter card. Anyone stopping in here for more than a few minutes also soon becomes dusted in fuzz and glitter.
Still, by the end of the weekend it'll all be over and I'll have to come up with a new excuse for having a small tornado go off in the office!
