I had a vision for a welcome to the neighbourhood type card when I was working with my Cricut last weekend.  I have to admit that the card didn’t turn out quite the way I planned but there is definitely potential to give it another go when time is on my side.

I think I got too ambitious with the tree in the background – plus I was working with a different sized card – I knew it would have to be a long card to get the row of houses that I’d envisioned to fit on the card…I went with 4 X 9 1/4″ as my card size as it would fit in a standard “business size” envelope…the result…well, you tell me:

To make myself feel better  I made a more traditional card using a stamped image and my regular size for the card base…but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to see that one.

I hope you all had a good weekend.  I’m off to make some dishcloths as our old ones need replacing.
