But I did it anyway. Anyone who knows me knows that I am the paper cutting queen. My customers shudder when we have a card class because we cut out little stamped images to go on our cards. I just love to cut paper. I never needed a Cricut, never wanted one and NEVER thought I would go out and buy one. But I did it, and I love it! And you will never guess where I got it. MENARDS. Not only can you buy home improvement supplies there, (along with groceries ??) once and a while you can get scrapbooking items. Who knew! They had green, purple and aqua. Came with two cartridges and the mat. Can't beat that.
