I picked out my own present from my husband this year for Christmas, we do this sometimes :) I found a killer deal on a Cricut Gypsy (handheld design studio) and it came with 7 free cartridges! I have really enjoyed playing with it and it's already helped me make cards faster. Here is the first one I made with it. It took me a super long time because I didn't know what I was doing yet, but I love the card!
Paper: Provocraft and Cosmo Cricket
Cartridge: Cindy Loo
