Hummingbird For Grandma's Birthday

My Grandma's Birthday is coming up at the beginning of February. I learned my lesson with Christmas, so I'm going to try to be ahead of the game so I have time to mail my creations.
I bought Art Nouveau before Christmas but I haven't had the time to use it yet. When I saw this cartridge I knew I had to have it. I love how detailed and pretty the cuts are, this is a new favorite of mine. My Grandma loves Hummingbirds so this cut is perfect for her. I used a rosette from one of my new Cartridges Ribbons and Rosettes as a flower and the leaves were cut from Straight from the Nest.

I wasn't sure on the colouring so I made two of the same card, and will use the other at another time. Let me know which you like the best. I'm partial to the green bird myself.

Cricut Cartridge recap:

Hummingbird - Art Nouveau
Rosette - Ribbons and Rosettes
Leaves - Straight from the Nest

Happy Birthday Grandma,



  1. Both are very pretty. I like the green just a little more but only because I love green hummingbirds. Santa brought me Art Nouveau and I love it as well. I will be posting a project I did with it this week but I do believe I will be using this cartridge alot! I'm excited to see what you will do with it!


  2. Gorgeous cards! That hummingbird is so pretty! I really like the green one! :)
