Loving the images from Jolly Holidays Lite Cartridge

I have been so busy lately that I hadn't had any time to play.  Well, I decided to take a little time out to play with my new Jolly Holidays cartridge that I got on Black Friday.  It's the only Lite cartridge that interested me other than the Aqua colored Expression (which I did not need- mine works just fine- so I left it there).  There are some reallly adorable images and these are a couple of my favorites...

The little skater girl... I added a real button to her dress rather than the paper button that was cut out and some Martha Stewart chunky glitter along with a couple of bows for the braids in her hair. I just used my finger and an ink pad to make her cheeks rosey.

The Santa with his stack.... I decided to make a shaped card.  I cut this one at 5.5 and the face is extremely small.  I actually drew on his eyes because the holes were not big enough.  I added a little Martha Stewart fine glitter and some twine to tie the sack.

Hopefully I will get a little extra time to make some more to share with ya.  I have an extra day off this week so I will see what I can do.  :)

I also bought Birthday Bash which I had been wanting for awhile and still haven't had time to play with that either.  I will work on making a few cuts from that one as well.

I also wanted to let you all know that I will be posting the new projects for THE CRICUT MINI ALBUMS DESIGN TEAM later on tonight.  The girls have made some really cute Thanksgiving themed albums to share with you all.  Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog and hope you will take the time to check out our challenge blog too.  Don't forget to leave some love!

Had to share this!!! My daughter's Self- Portrait

My oldest daughter brought this home from school yesterday. It is a self-portrait and is made using only her fingerprints! I think it is amazing and looks just like her. I took a picture of it because first of all I wanted to share it with all of you, but secondly I am thinking of having it printed on canvas. So what do you think?
