Monsters for Valentines at Exploring Cricut

Hello Crafty Friends,
The weekend is always an enjoyable time except when you are sick ~ yes, I got that terrible cold that seems to be going around, but I am not going to let it ruin my time off. I have plans and I am going to stick with them. That means making more projects!
Today is my Exploring Cricut Day.
I have a special monster to share. This is not my son, but I am going to send it to him at college. I know he likes to receive mail while living away in the dorms. Who doesn't love to receive fun mail?!?!
I found this monster on the Bump in the Night cartridge. I was on eBay one day and I was bididng on some random cartridges (I really want Love you a Latte) and I actually won this one. I didn't really want it (but I wanted to win something!), so I didn't check on the status until the next day when I read an email. My daughter loves the monsters, so I decided to give it a try. is cute! I can see monsters for any occasion.
Another sentiment that would be perfect for Valentinees...I love you this much! Guess what is on the inside? : )
My son just started wearing bow ties (I think he picked that up from his fraternity brothers), so he should appreciate this one.
