Morning all

Hope you're having a great day so far.

I've just recently invested in a Cricut Create machine and bought the Create a Critter cartridge to play around with which so far I LOVE.  I am still getting to grips with how to use the thing though so its taken me a while to create a card with some of the things I've cut on it but, here is the first proper attempt.

I cut out this darling little dinosaur, once in the layered colours and once in white card stock and glued a suitable edge together to make the card. There is most probably a better way of doing this but so far I haven't figure that out so this is my best shot at it!

To give a bit more depth to it I added some little eye lashes, a bit of glitter here and there and inked the edges all the way around.  I then punched out a cute little tag and stamped it with my sentiment.  I attached this with some ribbon and a button.

This is for no-one in particular but I am sure it will be come in handy at some point so this one is destined for my card draw for now.

I will continue to play around with this new little machine and will share whatever I come up with as I figure it out some more.  Any tips gratefully received!
