A Cricut Hooting Good Time in Hinkley

Hello from Hinkley, Minnesota!
Shanna & I are having a great get-a-way "weekend" with the girls. We shopped, shared many laughs and now we are scrapbooking and still sharing many laughs. Our friends Caroline & Stephanie had to head home this morning because they have to work tomorrow. We already miss them. Did you see any interesting "squishables" on the drive home?

Anyways, Cricut has come out with a new line of "Cricut Lite" cartridges that are exclusively sold at Super Wal-Marts. Our local Wal-Mart only carries three of them. The Duluth Wal-Mart carries all of them. So, I was able to pick up the cartridges that I wanted and the ones that my friend Lee-Ann asked me to pick up for her. You know Snappy Scraps the Cricut Card Queen.
Lee-Ann, I did this card in your honour. Shanna and I both made cards with your new "Hoot 'n' Holler" Cricut Cartridge. I was also able to incorporate the "Back to School" theme into my card for the Paper Sundaes Challenge this week.

I used BoBunny Chocolate, Decaf & Coral Dot Cardstocks, a Bazzill Brown from my stash (don't know the name of it) CTMH Sweetleaf Cardstock & more of my CTMH Patterned Paper from my old stash. I embellished with Stamping Bella Bon Bons, CTMH Buttons & a light pink zig zag stitch on the inside of the card. Both of the sentiment stamps I used are from CC Designs.
Shanna and I are having such a great time that we have extended our trip by a day and we won't be returning until Thursday afternoon. Our husbands were very supportive when we texted them our wishes for an extention. They totally understand how this helps our mental health and they probably know that this definitely gives them huge brownie points as well.

We bow to Lee-Ann, our Cricut Card Queen. We hope we made you proud with our non-copic colouring, cricut cartridge cutting cards. Say that five times fast!
