I bought the Pretty Pennants cartridge. It's not an extensive cartridge but many of my creations have some form of a pennant so I thought it would be nice to add to my collection as I often cut that shape by hand and I'm not always pleased with the final look.
Before I could design this latest creation, I needed to update my Gypsy and then my Cricut Expression. I won't get into all of the details but suffice it to say that it did take 2 hours. Sigh! In case you don't know, the Gypsy is a handheld device that allows you to work with the images of the various cartridges that you own, scale them to the size that you want and then cut them on your Cricut machine. It is simple for me and I just love working with it!
So here is my Christmas card.
Papers: Simple Stories
Cricut: Winter Woodland (sleigh, santa's hat), Elegant Edges (frames)
Pretty Pennants (snowflake pennant)
Spellbinders for scalloped circle frames

Small gems and pearl
I've been following the Deconstructed Jen for some time now but never took the time to participate in their weekly sketches as I'm often a week or too behind. Happy I could this time and here is the wonderful sketch DS74 that gave me my inspiration!
Thanks for dropping by! Please leave me a comment about my card or the redesigned look!
