I finally got to play with the Cricut and I am hooked!! My dear friend Suzanne brought over her baby for me to play with when we had our girls' stamping weekend and OMG! I knew that it was amazing and could do so many things, but I didn't know what I was missing! I am guilty of thinking that I have the Big Shot so there really is no need for another die cutting machine, but the Cricut truly is in a league of its own. There really is no comparison. Lol..I sound like an ad for the Cricut. So after I had to part with it when the weekend was over, DH said that I could get my own (I know, I'm a spoiled brat)...woohoo!! So I will be the proud owner of the chirping bug this weekend!! But in the mean time, here's the very first project I made:
This card was made and given to our friend Karen who had ordered Chow Mein one night for dinner and instead of getting noodles, she got a styrofoam container full of bean sprouts. When she called the restaurant to complain she was told that Chow Mein is bean sprouts and if she wanted noodles then she would have to pay extra. Ummm...she's Chinese (and so am I) so we can confidently say that Chow Mein translated means Fried NOODLES! Lol...so we (Suzanne and Christyne) thought it was quite funny and fitting that she get this card.
Here's the noodles that she didn't get with her order!
What do you think?
Thanks for looking!
