A Storybook Deal

Every since I got my Cricut last October, I've had my eye on the Cricut Storybook cartridge.  I've watched countless E-bay auctions and it always went a little too high for me.  Although a font cartridge, Storybook has a ton of great image designs for cards and scrapbooking.  Yesterday, I lucked out at Wal-mart finding this great cartridge for $23!  I'd read on one of the discussion boards a couple weeks back that some Wal-mart stores were closing out their craft departments.  I don't know if this is true but there were a lot of things marked down.  Initially I stopped by for my favorite adhesive and it was already cleared out.  I hope they are just changing some of their stock and not closing out craftts altogether.  It is 15 miles from my house the the nearest craft store otherwise.

The new cartridge didn't gather any dust in my craft room.  I'd already started this card before I went to town and I used Storybook to cut the scallop circle design from Stampin' Up! designer paper.

The card is for the Finally Friday challenge at Two Peas in a Bucket to use black, white and one other color for punch.

One project note:  The main part of of the card is attached with foam adhesive.  I tucked the ribbon under the edges of the raised are with glue dots to create the folds.

Thanks for visiting!
