I have caught the bug!!!!!

Did someone say it's Thursday today??? How is that possible??? Perhaps it is the little Cuttlebug that is causing time to pass so quickly. Those new little critters tend to do that to us crafters. All I can say is I can't believe I waited so long to buy him--now I don't know how I will live without him.
I promised to share some creations using my Cuttlebug so here is a sneak peak of some kid size projects I have been working on using my new green sweetie. I think I might even call him Cutty! Oh is he ever cute and what wonderful things he does. I think I will be feeding him even more die cuts and embossing folders very soon. All I have to do is narrow down my wish list is LONG!
I am almost thinking that shares in Provo Craft stock might do the trick. Thank goodness my birthday is only 2 months away...
