Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

Two Types of Slider Cards to Share

Just wanted to share these photos of a couple of "Slider Cards" I made for one of the Challenges at the MTC forum just before the holidays.  I don't have any files to share.  I think the cut files for each were shared on the MTC forum and you could find them there to use if you have the MTC software. I think the Santa was from the MTC gallery of files people have shared there. The stocking was one I still had in my stash that I had previously cut from a Cricut cartridge. Either type of card could also be used as a gift card holder. HO HO HO and the Merry Christmas were both $1 stamps. I spritzed the card for the first time and I added texture to Santa's beard using the swirl embossing folder.

If you don't have MTC, you can find directions for these types of cards in a variety of spots on the Web.  Simply google slider cards.  Thanks to those who shared the files and for the Challenges at MTC.  I enjoyed participating.  There were a lot more challenges to do then I got done.  I sitll have the list and hope to get some more of them done.
