Good morning friends! Happy weekend! I know it isn't usual that I get a post up on the weekend, but I guess my time is not "usual" right now!;) I was asked to make some cards for the PTA at the elementary school. I am happy to make cards for people that make my kids days happy!!
I was super excited to pull my silhouette out off the shelf for this card! I love that machine, and I haven't used it since we moved, and I miss the fun that comes with it! I didn't have quite the right "congrats" in my stamp supply...I had a certain idea of what I wanted to do and didn't have quite the right look in stamps. So, I pulled out my trusty Silhouette and went to town!
I ended up making quite a few changes to one of the sentiment I had in my library...I'm getting better at that software and it is exciting to make things do what you want!! So, this congrats is altered a bit from the image in the online store...and I LOVE how it turned out! I used some silhouette double adhesive paper to cut my sentiment, then used some gold glitter to add some sparkle!
My paper is from Crate Paper, Maggie Holmes...and I LOVE the patterns in that pad! My flowers are mini blooms from PTI.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend...we are currently enjoying the RAIN! I know many of my friends on the east coast are enjoying (lol) crazy winter storms, we are having a pounding of rain as of late! There are two bridges that lead to my little town, and one of them has been under water....oh the delight!;) I am listening to the rain pattering on the roof and thankful to be inside and dry!!
Take care friends and I'll see you Monday! Thanks for stopping by!

Hope the flooding has gone away!

This is what you've done with your silhouette! The gold is amazing!
