For all my new Blog Land Friends!!

Well Hi Everyone!! 

Today at Magnolia Down Under Challenges is the start of a new challenge and it's to make a Shaped Card!!  How fab is this??  Can't wait to see what everyone does!!

In case your wondering (hopefully not) my card is a Strawberry Shape - sweet - and I've used my Strawberry Tilda - sweet again.....  So I cut out my strawberry with my new Cricut and the Hello Kitty Cartridge and then made it into an Easel Card!!  I'm having such a great time with the Cricut - its just toooooo much fun!! 

My card is for all my new friends in blog land (especially my fellow Design Team Members that have made me feel very welcome) that I have made since I starting blogging in January!!!  Hope you all like it:-)
