Clean & Simple Thanks!

Hi everyone! I hope you had a fabulous Christmas! Mine was awesome... filled with family and friends. Christmas time can be such a rush and there is so much excitement leading up to it and when it's over.. it's kind of a bummer!

One of my gifts this year was a Cricut Expression... oh my... it is AWESOME! I never really had an interest in getting a Cricut just because I thought the cartridges were expensive, plus I had a regular hand cranked die cutting machine and figured that's all I needed. Well, I was wrong.. this baby is amazing! I changed my mind about it when I recently discovered that you can download free files to it... there's a lot of free goodies to be had! I hope to share some with you in the near future!

This is my first project using the Cricut. This is a very clean & simple card using the challenge on Splitcoast to use Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake. I pulled out some scraps of this old Apple Cider dp (which I still have TONS of...). I paired it with a flower that I cut using my Cricut. It's on the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge (the cartridge that my machine came with).

The sketch is from last Friday's Clean&Simple Fall-to-Sketch.

The flower and the sentiment (sentiment is from the retired Bella Blossoms set) are mounted on Stampin' Dimensionals. Everything else is pretty self explanatory!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fantastic day!


  1. Darling CAS card. Have fun playing with your new toy :)

  2. I love your card.
    I have a cricut, too....
    I didn't know about any free downloads for it. Can you please share more about it? I have the smaller cricut - 6x12.
