The Cricut!

I love my new cricut!  It's the best Valentine's Day gift I have EVER gotten.  Thank you boyfriend! 

I had this old canvas that I had mod podged a bunch of black and white magazine cut-outs onto.  It had just been wasting away, waiting for something fun to happen to it and BAM!  Lightbulb!  I cut a flower out of contact paper, then used it as a stencil.  I had to peel all those little pieces off my matt and put them on the canvas, but it was worth it!  After the paint from the flower dried, I cut out a bird and painted it too.  I think it turned out really wonderful.  What do you think?
