More Challenge Cards

woot woot...I got my cricut working. I had to download the new firmware for my cricut via Design Studio. Now I have to find my Design Studio registration number and transfer it over so I can use it beyond the trial period (for the rare occasions when I'm not using SCAL.

Then, I had to select the correct firmware edition. I kept choosing 2.1 and it wouldn't work. Finally emailed CraftEdge. Got back into the program and ACTUALLY READ the directions (there were no pictures - that's where I got hung up)...I found that my cricut is on 2.3. I put that in, and viola, it works. Shot off another email to CraftEdge to admit my mistake.

This first card is the midweek challenge at S&S blog. White on White with a splash of Color. I'm actually liking it. I think I'll make more for OWH this weekend at the all-day crop at church.

Since I finally got Cricut working, I was able to cut out this frame for the Christmas Tree Card for CraftyHazelNut's challenge. I'm not happy with it. I have to figure out how I changed the direction of my mat, etc. I love this tree stamp and that was the challenge - use a tree image.

Still feeling under the weather. Had to follow my son to the garage to get his truck fixed this morning so I went into work. I stayed off the phone but didn't feel so good. I think I had a fever in and out. So I left around noon and came home. I still have some work to do -- tonight while I watch Blue Bloods!

Keep your heart open and let your creativity change someone's life. Thanks for stopping by...Susan
