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!
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.
