Good Morning! I am sure you are all ready to hear who gets all the goodies!! OK ready??!!

Drum roll please!!!
and the winner of my 1st giveaway (used is................................................
YEY!!!!!! Please send me an email with your contact information so that I can send those cuts your way!!!!

On to more fun stuff! I know that we all have complained about the prices of those Cricut Lite Cartridges!!! But he fact of the matter is that once you are in front of them... well, you CAN'T resist!!!! No! I tried it and debated with myself and my Scrappin Devil won!!! The good thing is that out of the ten my store had I only needed to have two (LOL).
Don't skip reading all this post! I have something fun at the end!!
I do have to say that I find these carts a lot easier to use! This fold out is so easy to use and I really wish all carts had this instead of the booklet!!
So I decided to do really simple cards because my main purpose was to play with the carts! :)
I made 4 cards!!! Here they are:
For this one I used the Slumber Party Cart. I cut at 3in and used DCWV Music Stack and ribbon from Michaels. I did used 3D glue dots for all cards. Card is standard A2.
Inside of the card, I did not do much to them. Just inked he edges.
Next card is also from Slumber Part. I love the cuts!! They are simple to cut! On this card I used DCWV Sweets Stack, Basic Grey Bittersweet collection, Michaels ribbon, and MS corner rounder. Let me not forget!!! Stamp is from Joy's "Lots of Pun" set!
For my next card I used Cherry Limaede Font Cart. I like the font but the extra images are the ones that made me decide I wanted this cart! I used DCWV Sweets stack, Recollections cardstock, Joanns stamp set and MS punch. I used 3D glue dots and inked everything!
Last but not least is this adorable birdie from Cherry Limeade. All images cut were at 3 in. I used DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack, MS punch, Recollections cardstock and stamp is from Stampin Up, this stamp is part of a set donated by Kristy Schalk.
Is this too much for one reading?? Sorry :) I got too excited!
If you haven't checked the rest of my posts, I encourage you to do so :) I am getting into baking a lot more and this Friday I will be doing another cake. This time it will be a two tier cake with decorations from Pagoda!!! I want to invite you to visit my other blog dedicated only to my cakes Scrapping Sweets I will have another giveaway over at my Scrapping Sweets blog this week!!

I am assuming that these carts are what all the hype about cricut's new releases over at Walmart is all about. Well these two carts that you are using are really adorable from what I can see. I guess I am going to have to check them out after all. Thanks for sharing and again - your cards are so very cute!!
