We have a new addition to the family. Our daughter bought herself a new puppy, a Newfoundland boy named Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, or Mr. Darcy . A big name for a small puppy who will be huge in about 8 months. He will reach 120 lbs easily.
It was love at first sight. I only wish she would find a boyfriend as cute as the puppy.
He will also be with me for the next six months while she is finishing her Navy obligation. I get the puppy training..... my first taste as a grandmother. Oh oh.
So we pull out my fairly new Cricut and attempt to make some puppy announcements for friends and family.
We use two cartridges; the New Arrivals and Paper Pups.
Cutting out the Pups.
A couple of phrases:
Now to attach the cut outs to the cards, I use the Xyron 900. It is a wonderful machine that can laminate, make stickers and make magnets.
Here we are pulling off the cut outs off the sticker paper.
Adding the pup to the card.
Here is the card finished.
We added his vitals. Since he is the only animal in the house with a tail, we had to mention the tail was included. Apparently, newfoundlands can clear a coffee table with one wag.
We added a special touch to the envelop.
We love the Cricut. I presently use it about 10 percent of it's capacity but will work this year to use it more fully.
