My first Silhouette project


I have not been posting that much lately.  I have been preoccupied.

I received a wonderful new crafting machine for Christmas.  A Silhouette Cameo cutting machine!!!!!

I can’t tell you how ecstatic I was. And still am.

I have been trying to win one FOREVER! I entered every giveaway I could find, but to no avail.

I have spent all my free time watching Youtube tutorials on how to use the machine.  Looking up materials to use.  Practicing with the software and fumbling around.


I knew there was two things I wanted to make first.  A thank you gift for some friends of ours who let us stay with them when we went to visit our old town.  And a card to go with it.

So here is my very first card made with my Silhouette!

Thanks A Latte card by Mama Sonshine

You can’t really see it because of the pen ink used, but the green tag says “Thanks A Latte”

My husband and I drink a lot of coffee.  That doesn’t change when we go on vay-kay and we consumed a lot while staying at our friends house.  Since he also drinks a lot of coffee, I thought this was fitting.

Those are little coffee beans spilled at the bottom of the card.  I would not have been able to cut them out, if not for my new machine!

Graphics for this card were from Traci Reed‘s Like you a latte kit.

Wait till you see the mug I made him, that post will be coming soon.

Happy Crafting
