In appreciation!

This past Christmas my MIL and FIL gave me my Cricut E as my gift and then later gave me the funds to get my excited about that! I'm sure a million post to follow on that subject :)

I thought it would be a nice gesture to make them a card so they see that I am putting their gift to good use!

Thank you Mom!

My mom sat at her house for three days waiting on a car shipping company to show up (very long story) but the point is she gave up a lot of her time so I wanted to thank her!
At the last mminute I decided it needed more so I added this cute and perfect color matched ribbon from America Crafts ( I got a great deal at

Elmo Potty Chart

My first ever Cricut project was a card for my cousin who had just had a new baby but I will be honest in telling you that the Cricut is a learning experience and the card was horrible!

So I would like to count this Potty Reward Chart I made for my almost 2 son as my first complete and worthy of showing project.

Keep checking my sister site to find out if the chart works!

Recipe for the project:

Orange construction paper for the background
All other paper is from a multi-colored value cardstock pack
-The circles: Designer's Calendar cart (fit to page 8.5x11)
-Days of the week letters: Designer's Calendar cart (2")
-Elmo: Sesame Street Friends (5")
