Most Cutesy Animal Cricut Cartridge of 2010

This is a tough category - so many cute animal cartridges to choose from!  I'm finding it hard to decide which ones even to narrow it down to, at this point.


Here are the contenders for the category of Best Cutesy Animal Cricut Cartridge of 2010:

1) Give A Hoot: This earth friendly cartridge has some of the cutest woodland animals out there.  Not only that, some "green" word art in a funky font completes the cartridge.


2) Create A Critter:  Loads of all kinds of animals using one of the easiest layering formats Provocraft has ever put out.  Every layer just stacks on top of the previous one - no little bits to contend with!



3) Simply Charmed: This is like a cuter, more updated version of the cartridge Doodlecharms.  Sure, lots of the characters have some goofy faces, but they can also be cut without those faces.  Many, many cute images.



4) Hoot 'n Holler Lite Cartridge: Owls are all the rage and this cartridge has some of the cutest owls out there and lots of owl-icious layered word art to boot!



5) 3 Birds on Parade: This cartridge has loads of these cute birds, all doing different things - going on trips, celebrating the holidays, etc.  Lots of fun word art on this one also!  A must have for someone who loves birds.



Let's hear a drum roll, please.....the winner of the Best Cutesy Animal Cricut Cartridge is the......



These little layered animals are just too stinking cute and there are just so many varieties - that's what makes this cartridge my pick for cutest animal cartridge!  Complementary phrases and accessories complete each animal.  The sheer variety in the animals makes this my hands down winner!

Which is your favorite?  Can't wait to hear!
