"Arizona" thank yous

I must confess I bought the Old West Cricut cartridge because it was on sale without any projects in mind. Two days later I got an invitation to visit Phoenix, Arizona!

I am now thrilled to have this cartridge in my library to scrap my pictures and of course make thank you cards to my friend who hosted me and my MIL who took over while I was away.

All cuts are from this cartridge. The word "you" is welded with my Gypsy. Everything is inked. I used a wax pencil to try and make the little purple cactus look like the ones I saw. I used my white Signo pen for the pricks. (I loved the cactuses/cacti and palm trees!)

I am entering this card at Frosted Designs. Their Fabulous Friday challenge this week is to create a project without patterned paper.


  1. Wow, it is adorable. What a great reason to use the cart! Your details are amazing.

  2. Ok I must confess I did the same thing and now I have a little more motivation to use this cart. I love your card, thanks for joining us at Frosted Designs!

  3. Don't you just love it when you buy something before you need it and then that perfect opportunity pops in your lap?! Adorable card! Thanks for joining us at FD this week!!
