The weather is truly terrible today, its been pouring with rain for the last couple of days non-stop and today is my day off work so what to do?! 

My Cricut machine is a fairly new but little used purchase so I had the urge to get it out for a play.  I decided to try the the sand castle from the Create a Critter cartridge (the only cartridge I own at present!) but wanted to use it as a little princess palace instead. Apologies for the poor picture quality, it seems almost dark outside despite having all the lights on indoors.

Once it was cut and assembled, I added some roofing using my Friskars scissors and layered them on the top and smaller turrets.  I glittered up the windows using some ultra fine Prisma glitter and a Zig glue pen and then drew in a port cullis.

I wanted more dimension so I added some brick work lines using my pokey tool and a ruler.  I then added a couple of flags and glittered these.

I stamped and coloured the princess image using PTI's Tiny Treats Birthday set and coloured with Copics. 

Super Cute!

Have a great day and I hope the weather is a lot better with you than it is with me!
