Paper creatures…

I haven’t posted a good while. My apologies. The last 2 quarters have been hectic with life stuff but I have been making creatures every chance I get. Here are some of them.

Doves (from the Folk Art Festival cartridge).

Donkey HavenBa-a-a-a!
Horse & Sheep (fromt he Country Life cartridge).

I made them using the Cricut Expression 2 (E2). I used old calendar pages from the Wolfcreek Printers (thank you so much for them :)) and other kinds of paper (Floral stack, Mariposa Matstack, Canson pastel paper). Sharing and embellishments are done using color markers (Bic permanent markers and Distress Dye Ink Markers) and Ranger Distress Ink Pad and blending tools. You may see my paper projects, here.

Thanks to my sweet prince, who gifted me with the Criut E2 for my birthday.

What I made this year…

It has been a challenging year for me.  I’ve been tired and achy for months before I was finally diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in August.  Finding the right meds was another matter.  Despite all that, I managed to made a few things.  Here’s a visual summary of that so it was still a good year.
