A few months ago, I won a 3 month membership to the Cricut Circle and as one of the perks, I received the Cricut Cartridge Cricut Everyday. (I'll be honest, I am completely lost how to use Cricut Circle. My membership is almost up, but if anyone could give me a hint, I would appreciate it...I feel so stupid!) Anyway, all of the cuts on the cartridge are somehow related to crafting. I wasn't sure how I was going to use this cartridge when I received it; however, when this challenge came about, I thought of the Cricuit "Bug" and a play on words. (I thought it was cute/funny

Wanted to share this picture of my son and my granddaughter (his daughter) in the pool this past week. She is such a ray of sunshine in our lives.

Hope that you have a wonderful week.

imagine what you could do...

P.S. This month is a year since I started my blog. I can't believe it's been that long already! Also my birthday is coming up at the end of the month, so keep checking back as I am planning on a give-away.
And as always, leave me a comment, I love hearing from you! Thanks!!


  1. Cute card. I like how the eyes are done.

  2. What a cute card! I'm glad you were able to use the free cartridge too! I also won a 3-month membership but did not get a cartridge. As for the Circle Blog, try using the tabs at the top of the website to go to the different areas. I don't go there much, but when I do, I check out the main page, weekly challenge and monthly challenge. I hope that helps!
    Happy one year blogiversary!

  3. This is very cute! I love the play on the "bug"! Great job- I don't belong to the circle so I have no clue. :)Amy

  4. Saw your card on Fantabulous Cricut! SO CUTE! I never would've thought to use Cricut on a non-scrappy card because I figured my non-crafting friends wouldn't recognize him, but this is great!

  5. Your card is so cute! love the eyes!

  9. Very cute card! I am not sure about the Cricut Club either. It's too expensive for me, LOL! Nice that you won it though plus a free cartridge.
