Quick Card Monday for Holidays with the Cricut

So today sees the first day of my stint as the February guest designer on Holidays with the Cricut (I can't bring myself to call myself Miss February!!).
Today, I was asked to make a video showing a quick and easy card, I used the elephant from the Paisley cartridge. I chose three cartridges to showcase this week - Paisley, Sweethearts and Pagoda. My holiday to showcase is valentines, but I have tried to make cards that would be suitable for other 'lovey' occasions too, like anniversaries or weddings.

if you go over to the site and leave a comment you are in the draw to win a Cricut cartridge, go on, the odds must be better than playing the lottery!
