Clever Cricut plus horses and dogs


Using Cindo Loo cartridge for the border welded onto a basic square, flowers using Close to my Heart Art Philosophy and sentiment from Birthdays

My Cricut machine has come in useful for a quick Birthday make and some Christmas gift envelopes, perfect for money or vouchers and they can be prettied up to make them a bit special as well all using the machine.

Envelopes made using Over the Hills, Spring Holiday and Christmas Cards, Poinsettia from Joys of the Season and Christmas Tree from Paper Dolls Dress Up cartridge

And a couple of photos of the boys and girls I have been meaning to share............

The 'spotty gang' patiently waiting to get back into their stables. Anysia decided they needed matching coats this winter - they 'need' new coats much the same as we 'need' crating goodies, I think we could open a tack shop with what's cluttering the tack room.

A hard days work for all in my craft room, Daisy left, devil eyed Holly on the right and Poppy conveniently located in the middle....such a tough life being a 'working' dog

Thanks for popping in to take a peek, hope to see you all again soon.

  1. It's always a joy to visit your blog to see what you've created. The card is beautiful - love the colours and those die cuts. And how fantastic to create those beautiful envelopes. I guess I need to get a Cricut. The only "machine" I have is a Cuttlebug and it is well used. I enjoyed seeing the horses and dogs too - I love animals! I hope you are feeling okay today.

  3. Great cricut work Brenda but lets get on to my other favourite things - horses and dogs!! The spotty attire looks very fetching...do you think they laugh at one another!!? I know whenever Surprise has a new rug she sort of turns, and looks at me (as I'm putting it on as if to say) YOU want ME to wear that!! And as for that busy trio on the couch, well you clearly work them far too hard!! Hope you are well xx

  5. Brilliant that the Cricut is making itself useful & helping out……..Love the spotty gang - they look very pleased with themselves & I rather think the canine gang must have got up early & done all their chores……….

  7. Oh my what a lovely photo's from your "gang". Love the spotty coats and what a dogslife and it reminds me of our dogs :-) We always said that we wouldn't allow them on our own coach (They had a chair claimed already) but how nice it is when they cuddle up next to you in the evening when you're sitting on the coach. So what the heck; there's no better life than a good life. Lovely presents and card, Brenda. Your cricut machine comes in handy :-)

  45. Little Miss C would be in her glory to see those gorgeous horses in their lovely blankets.
    She finally has a saddle and is riding weekly at her uncles. She has to share that horse with 3 other cousins and is still hoping to get her own...time will tell I guess!
    Your cricut cards look great...I have a cricut and have never used it. Got it just before the brain injury and then was too afraid to learn how it worked. At the beginning, thinking or concentrating makes your head feel like it is going to explode...but much better now...just forget things all the time...hahahaha My goal for 2014 is to USE IT!

    The envelopes pouches look wonderful.
