I thought the Car was painful

Pumped up by my enthusiastic response to the race car, I thought I was up for a new challenge.  My niece is a Tinkerbell freak (as all 3 year princess girls should be) so I got the Tinkerbell and Friends cartridge for my Cricut.  Even though Coal swallowed my first Tink whole, I decided to try again. 

This should have been easier since there are far fewer pieces than the race car.  I forgot one important thing, Tink is a fairy and fairies are all feathery and light.  That means they have very detailed cuts that are absolutely teeny-tiny.  After several failed attempts at getting the speed and pressure just right for the paper, this is what I was able to come up with.


I decided that Coal wouldn't be getting a Tinkie for dessert tonight so I am going to give this one to my boss. Well, it is really for her daughter since she misses her mommy when she is gone.  I hope she likes it!

She should have her hand on her hip and her finger shaking at your face! Just like our little TinkerBell! This is just precious!

Brianna loved it. Especially since you made it into a sign with her name on it. She wants to put it on her bedroom door. I'm telling you I'm so jealous about the cropping week-end still. I definitely want to be included next time. Glad you had fun though, I know how hard of a week it was for you!!! I also love the car, makes me want to go out and get my very own Cricut machine.

I was eating at a dining room in a Sheraton Hotel nearby, and a table full of croppers were eating there, part of a group of 200 crop campers, just one weekend later, and across the highway from where you guys did yours. Hope they had as much fun as you did!

Tammy - You definitely need to try to join us next year since we have a ton of fun. Don't count on getting a ton of sleep though!
