Your're not old, your're Vintage!

You ever have a cricut cart that you stash and don't open? I have a few I get them and think I am just not sure about. Well I finally broke down and opened my "Just Because Cards". LOL I have had it seems like forever but did not know if I would really use the content on it. I needed a card for my dad and I had no idea what I was going to use. Then I looked at this cart and seen this pick up truck. He is into old trucks, he owns a couple. He has a weakness for them and just has to buy them when he sees one for Anyway when I seen this truck I knew I wanted to use it. Also had this stamp set that I thought was cute. He likes kinda funny cards so thought I use the "Your're Not Old You're Vintage"

For the pickup I cut it out of metallic blue paper, his favorite truck is blue which we joke all the time about. We call it old blue, it needs a little TLC or a lot. We joke with all the time he will be driving that truck till the day it falls apart while he is going down the road. So when I was making the card it had to be I also added a fishing pole in the pickup bed cause he loves his fishing. Well thanks for stopping in and supplies will be below as always.
Sorry about the photo being kinda dark so took a close up of the pickup cut.

Cricut Creative Cards Free to use till the 20th

Think I have found a new cricut cart I will have to get when it comes out. For all those who have cricut craft room it has been available for free to use since Feb 14th it is only free to use one more day it goes till the 20th. On the Feb 21st you can buy it. I hope some of you have had the chance to use it. Yesterday was the first day I had free to play with it.
My thoughts on it, there is not a ton of content on it from what I have seen. I will say from the little bit I have got to explore it all the items go well together. Not sure if it will be a full content cart or a solution cart I am thinking it will be a solution cart. Lest I hope don't think I would pay the price of full content cart and I really would like to get this cart. Think it make a great cart to add to a collection for those who enjoy card making. Great card designs and they work well together for adding your own touch. And if this is going to be solutions cart and you don't own other card design carts this be a great starter cart even just to have for card bases. So we will see on the 21st what price point it will be but here is the link to check it out and if you have cricut craft room go explore it while you can ends on the 20th and you can use it for free lest till the 20th not sure if it ends at midnight or you have all day on the 20th to.
