Joys of the Season cart

Heres some cards I have been making this week with my new cricut cart Joys of the Season.I used DCWV le creme pad,beautiful clours and some are glittered and some are pearlised.The stamps are from Daisy and Dandelion set I got off of QVC love the fonts and the circle one fits perfect in the wreath.The deer one is on vellum that I got in a goodie bag ages ago but never knew what to do with it before.Also used the good old trusted cuttlebug...dots...swirls...and a snowflake folder.OK off to make more cards and hopefully get them posted again soon.Sorry havent posted for so long but just lost my crafting bug for a couple of months but its back again I think.
