Hello Thursday

If you are a Cricut Fan then you know that Thursday is an awesome day! Once a month Provo Craft releases all the new cartridges for the month and shares them with the world on this special day.  A little side note, this announcement is made on Wednesdays for those who are members of the Cricut Circle!  This month has been especially awesome, because Provo Craft has had THREE Hello Thursdays. Normally, they only have ONE!  For this week's release, I was lucky enough to get to work with a new cartridge called Flower Shoppe!  I knew I would be in love with this one as soon as I saw it!  It is all about 3D flowers!  And if anyone knows me, then you know that I LOVE flowers!!!  The project that I am sharing with you today is also up on the Official Cricut Blog.  Make sure you stop by there for more details and to check out the all the new cartridges and projects that were created.
 As you can see, I created a treat container that can be used for a birthday gift along with a birthday card!
 
Here is an up close view of the flower I created using the Flower Shoppe Cartridge.
I created two of them, one for the card and one for the treat container.
I was also fortunate enough to get to play with a new cartridge called Word Collage and it seems to be causing quite the buzz.  I really enjoyed it and found it a lot of fun to work with.  I have noticed that some people are concerned about cutting the small letters and words.  There is no need to worry about this.  If you cut your image at the recommended size they come out wonderfully.  Each image has a recommended size with most of the sizes being so that you can easily frame your project with a standard size frame.  Anyway, I just wanted to share those tips with you in case you see it and were wondering about that too.

Thanks so very much for stopping by!
HAPPY HUGS!
