Carousel


When I heard that Walmart had a special online offer for the Lite Cricut cartridges, I had to send off for a couple. As usual, I was late to the party, and got Handyman, but wasn't sure about the remaining cartridges at all, in the end I ticked the box for Carousel

The first thing I do when I get a new cartridge (after breaking my nails to get into the packaging) is to read the handbook. I read it as if it was a magazine, slowly, digesting every detail, then I read it again....... during this process, certain cuts leap out at me. The first one was the water ride, which I cut at 3". I added hand cut drops of water to fly up, and I splashed drops of glossy accents on the 'water'



Then I spotted the strong man, and the words Incredible Hulk jumped into my mind, so this is my punny offering with that cut - I thought it would make a good birthday card for someone to give to a boyfriend or husband. No, Mike will not be getting this card, he would fall about laughing if I sent it to him or think that I was making some not-so-subtle wifely statement

So I was waiting for my coffee alongside some guy. They brought his coffee and said ' cream, two sugars, right?'
'NO' he replied in a horrified voice 'just cream, no sugar'
So they went away to remake it
He then started to tell me how sugar was the hardest substance for the body to digest, he hadn't touched the stuff for 22 years - he was quite evangelical in his anti sugar stance. Of course, I agreed with him, having discovered some time ago that it is better to agree with everything anybody says in Dunkin Donuts. So there we were, me nodding in agreement, him carrying on, and on, and on about the evils of sugar...........
Then they brought out my coffee





Oops!

See you tomorrow

Ok, Enfys today's story made me literally laugh out loud! Love your watery roller coaster card. My hubby would have the same reaction as yours to the second card! (Maybe something to do with the number of anniversaries under our belts?)

I love the cards, but almost more importantly, is that REALLY a coffee? We don't have anything like that here, do we? I'd become a serious coffee addict if we did. Did you have the decency to blush when it arrived?

Carol said...

OMG ... Enfys, that is just too funny! So much so, my computer screen was in danger of a hot coffee spray from my laughter as I am sitting here drinking my morning coffee (luckily, it's black, no sugar, no cream). But I scared my cat ... he's decided that this morning it's not safe to be anywhere near me!

LOLOLOLOLOLOL

(ohhhh ... BTW, I love the cards too!)

Hugz,
Carol

Thanks so much for your Dunkin Donuts story! I have tears in my eyes from laughing! You are right about agreeing with people who go there. I love both of the cards you made, they are very cute.

A splash here and there said...

I love the cards! Love the story about Dunkin Donuts - but unlike your hubby, I'll have my coffee with my sugar please; I normally take 4 packets of sugar with mine along with cream, but for that size of coffee I think 6 will do.
