Thursday Chirp

I thought I would make Thursdays my Cricut day, hence the name Thursday Chirp.  I want to push myself to use it more.  I've been surfing and finding some amazing projects.  I think there is a bit of a learning curve - some cartridges are pretty complicated for my pea brain.  My goal is to use it regularly and LEARN!  (That would be part of my OLW: FOCUS goals). 

I broke out my Wild Card cartridge, watched several you tube videos and made this little Valentine with matching envelope.  I used Core'dinations cardstock that was recommended by several Cricut users.  I was very excited to use the cardstock - I've had it for awhile - got it at Hobby Lobby 50% off!

I had fun making this.  Hope you enjoy it.  Please let me know.  I LOVE comments.  I made it easier to leave comments; you don't have to log in to anything or type a made up word to verify. 

Stamps: Verve
Cardstock: Core'dinations
Pattern Paper: Basic Grey
Ink: Memento black
Misc: Jolee's embellie, pearls, PTI double end banner, button and floss
Cricut info : Wild Card cart cut at 4 3/4" (used card, envelope, liner and frame)

  1. I have that paper somewhere! I do love this; it's great. I don't have a Cricut, but I have the same goal with my new Silhouette.
