Never ending card My Video 10/26/12 at

Never ending cards always amaze people, create some of your own and have fun watching everyone open the card over and over again. All the designs were cut with the Artiste Cricut Cartridge.  When you cut out the horses you get 2 horses and a rope.  The size is based on the length of the rope, so if you want 1 1/2 " horses you would cut them out about 4"

I added the very full November schedule under Calendar of events. And I also added a Christmas wishlist under Special Events.  So go to those tabs and get excited about the Christmas gifts you can make and give.
