I'm back.......................

Wow!!!  I can't believe I haven't posted since April.  Where did the time go?  Well, let me tell you.  In April, we had several birthdays, a wedding and a funeral.  In May, we had several more birthdays, our daughter's wedding, and Mother's Day.  It seemed like we just couldn't get ahead of ourselves.  And to further our schedule we had work.  I mean lots of work.  I'm not complaining cause it sure pays the bills......  But!!!  It sure would be nice to have a weekend off.  Away, enough chatter........

With my birthday being yesterday (May 31) my husband surprised me with a Silhouette Cameo.  Boy, I am so excited to get started with this machine.  However, I need to find counter space in order to use it and then the thought of using it.  There are so many function keys on it.  It looks overwhelming.  Then I still have to find the time to play with it.  Everything comes in time, so I'm not to stressed about it...... ha,ha.

I was able to make a couple of cards during the last couple of months.  My Godmother's Sister Rhonda, age 55, just recently passed away.  So in her honor, I made this beautiful card and sent it off.  I first would like to apologize for the blurry pictures.  When I scanned this card into my computer, I didn't realize that the flowers were as bulky as they were.  So I apologize.........

This definitely isn't your standard A2 card.  The size of this card is 5 1/2 x 7 1/2.  I used both Fancy Frames and Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridges.  I also used Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals and Shapeabilities Foliage.  Finished it with ribbon and pearls.   The sentiment was computer generated.

For the inside, I reduced a 1/4" in size for each the hot pink, green and white.  The sentiment was again computer generated.

If you would like the exact measurements of everything, please feel free to email me.  I will gladly send them to you.  As always, thank for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!!!
