2nd Crop Day and a Challenge

Hello Crafters,
Yesterday I went to my 2nd ever crop day! This time I did take a bit more then last and well in retrospect I didn't use even half of it. Below are some pictures of the day and the cards that I made. Baby cards...yes baby cards! I have figured it out, it's not that I can't make them, it's that I don't have the right cartridge lol. New Arrival has now been bumped to the number one spot on my wishlist!

Oh, and more exciting news...I had enough cricut rewards to get a free cartridge (well I had to pay $7ish dollars in shipping but not bad. I ordered the Sweethearts cartridge. Between that and the Tie the Knot cartridge I should be good to go when it is time to make my wedding scrapbook :)

P.S. I am entering my baby girl card (it was hard to pick which on but that little outfit is just too cute)at Celebrate the Occasion blog where their current challenge is themed 'New Arrival'.

P.P.S Serioulsy...99 followers??? I understand that often people stop following blogs (I'm not going to lie those ones that people only post on once in a blue moon often get bumped from my list) but come on not when someone is right at 100. I was not going to say anything but that hurts :( Thank you for those of you who continue to support me, your comments and friendships make it worth while.



No, I didn't take my shredder it just happened to be in the frame lol



Needed a little break :)

Tara, those are really cute cards. It looks like you had a fun day. In answer to your question from my blog, the "Thank You" stamp is made by Stampendous and is a rubber cling stamp. Looks like your blog is back to 100 followers. Mine has varied between 212 and 213 for weeks now, up and down and up and down. Just gotta roll with the punches and be thankful for our loyal followers and friends.

Hugs, girl!!! xoxoxo

I love your Precious Little Angel Cards Tara!!! They are so cute! It looks like it was a fun crop! I'm glad you mentioned the paper shredder because the it was the first thing I noticed in the pic. That would be an interesting tool to take...hehe! Sorry to hear of your follower. That's a bummer but don't let it get you down. Your very talented and I'm sure you'll see a lot more faithful followers in your future! Thanks for sharing your fun day!

What super cards! I'm glad they didn't go in the shredder!! They are adorable.
What great photos too. I was especially interested that you only had to pay $7 shipping. I have points but have never used them as I didn't think it would be worth it with the shipping costs. So good news!
Oh - and I see you are at 102 followers now. :) I'm not going anywhere so you are stuck with me too!!
