Warmes Wishes

Welcome back!  I hope your day is going well so far!  If you are here to see my Sweet Stop sketch please scroll down or click HERE

You may or may not know it but I love SVG's.  I have Sure Cuts A Lot downloaded on my computer to use with my Cricut (SCAL is not available for purchase to use with a Cricut anymore).  I have lots & lots & lots of SVG's and I feel pretty comfortable using them.  Now Cricut cartridges not so much.  I can't figure them out for the life of me, right Tana?  LOL!  Anyway, Clear Dollar Stamps releases a couple of SVG's (that can also be hand cut from a PDF pattern) each month and I like to volunteer to make a sample for the release day so that is...today!

This SVG is called Beverage Holder but when you hop on over the the blog to see the post you will see that one of the other DT members made it into a cute Halloween treat box and a cupcake holder too so it is absolutely something you can use in a way other than the way I did but I love mine.   My local Safeway had the cups for $2.50 for 12 and the hot chocolate was on sale, too.  I got the Ghirardelli on sale so I'd say this entire project cost me less than $1.50 to make...perfect for teachers don't you think? 

Well, that is it for me this weekend here on my blog.  I have lots of putsy things to do so I'll be busy!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! 

Thought of the day:  If more females would sit down and be ladies then more males would stand up and be gentlemen.  AMEN to that!

Hi Lorie, what rock have I been hiding under? I didn't know this was one of the SVG's for the month? This is totally adorable! Love the idea. I better go and get this one! You cracked me up because I struggle with SVG!!! I can handle any cartridge. I love your project! Look forward to seeing more!
Hugs, Sarah

P.S. I have a Cricut too, and have heard you can use SVG files with it, but I am totally clueless on how to accomplish that..lol So far I have just stuck with my cartridges.. But would love to know how to use SVG's
