Cute Owl Valentine's Card

I just recently got the Wild Card Cricut Cartridge.  Thanks to some FABULOUS videos on YouTube by Creations with Christina, I feel confident putting these cards together after they are cut! :)
Here is my first one. 
The Owl Card (Valentine's style! :)

I think he turned out pretty cute! :)  I glittah'd up his eyes and beak and inked up the edges of the paper pieces.

Here is the front of the card and the matching envie.

Here is the inside of the card. (ok. HOW do I get these long pics to NOT be sideways......grrrrrrrrrr)

Thanks for looking!!!!

Back in the Saddle...........

Howdy!!  Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!!  Happy New Year and all that jazz!
I have been having fun playing with my Digi Scrapping software and my new cutting toys!  I bought a Gypsy to go with my Cricut Expression.  (How sad is this...... it was so cheap [$49.99] that I bought it without REALLY knowing what it did....... LOL)  For some reason Michael's had a Cricut blowout... cartridges for $9.99, the Gypsy and Create for $49.99, and some other accessories super cheap.  So, I indulged and have been playing! :)
Here are 2 little projects that I have done.
The "Chick Card" is for my girlfriend that moved away to Colorado.  She raises and shows chickens.  I think she'll get a big kick out of it:

This next project is my first Wordbook.  My daughter is going to her best friends B-day party tomorrow.  She wanted a mini album to give her.  I designed this wordbook in the Gypsy and cut on my Cricut.  I embossed the top layer of the letter with a Sizzix Texture Impression folder.  I think it give it a little "somethin'"  :)
My daughter will decorate/embellish/add photos for Brianne.  (I figure you already know her name!  LOL)

Book open.  I made sure to have decorative paper on both sides and I also did the letter on both sides.  :)

Overall I'm pretty happy with it.  Some things I would definately do differently next time...... but, I appreciate my daughter chosing her best buddy as my guinea pig!  :) :) :)
