Grand Nestie Envy,,,,,,

OK, so after saying I'd NEVER want to cut the grand nesties,,,,,,,,yeah. I want to. Go figure. It's a moot point, though,,,,,,,,except maybe for ONE set, I probably can't really afford them right now,,,,still building my regular nesty stash. sigh.

However, it hit me today, when I was pining to make a shaped card with the grand nesties,,,,,,,that I DO have a cricut,,,,and about FORTY cartridges. AND a gypsy. So what right do I have to complain?????

so I whipped out the Gypsy, fired up the cricut expression and,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

no mats LOL. Poor cricut has been a bit ignored since I started my nesties obsession,,,,,,,,

so after a pitiful look at my husband (works every time), we set off to Lakeland to hit up Joann's for some new mats.

THEN I fired up the expression and found a shape I liked,,,,,,,,,,and whipped this card up lightning fast,,,,,,,,I even cut the poinsettia's out of my Winter Woodland cartridge. That's glitter on the flowers, not sand,,,,I really detest that I can never photograph glitter nicely. ugh. And I used my oval nesties (most used, I swear, I never saw THAT coming!) to make the window. Stamp is Inkadinkadoo.

Not sure I am in love with the shape,,,,,,next time I'll try and turn it so the scallops are down (as suggested by a few friends),,,,,,,,and I later found a shape EXACTLY like Labels 14, which I am drooling over,,,,,

All I know is I am intrigued :)

Oh, and I didn't even stare at and drool over the BRAND NEW NEVER SOLD BEFORE nesties they now have in my Joann's,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,more than 40 or 50 times anyway :)

did I mention that I have a 50% off coupon from Michaels that I am almost CERTAIN Joann's will take????????

and a daughter who will do anything for a couple bucks :) Just printed up 2 coupons :)
