Outdoor fun

 Morning all, again.  A new challenge starts today over at Sparkles Monthly Challenge.  'Outdoor fun' is our new theme so you can guarantee that it will start to rain.  I've mentioned before that, due to my wrists being in splits, I have been using my cricut more often.  I found a brilliant cut file of a guy with a barbecue.  It should have been easy to cut and assemble.  However, in my wisdom I chose to cut all the pieces in white and colour them.  So much for keeping it simple to save the pain.

I am pretty chuffed with how he came out though.  It was worth putting a little more effort in.  It's a sort of blessing in disguise really as, before my wrist problems, I would never have tried a cut file like this. I tend to use just words or backgrounds.  I might get a bit more value from my cricut access subscription now I can see what I'm capable of doing with these sorts of files.

Please pop over to the blog and show us your ideas of outdoor fun.

Thanks for reading.
