Hello Friends and Happy Monday! I have been out of sorts with my PC. I believe my network adaptor has kaput and I had no internet yesterday. You never realize how much you depend on something until you lose it. So I am operating from my laptop. Thank heavens for backups.
Our Challenge at Craft Your Passion is up and we have a sketch for all you lovely crafters. This is one of my main creative inspiration tools and I almost always start with a sketch. Otherwise, it’s a picture of the card or project in my head.
Our sponsor this week is Robyn’s Fetish and I'm using a cute image called “A Little Birdie Told Me.” I didn't stray much from the design of the sketch as you can see.
I got to play with a new crafting tool this week. I received a Silhouette Cameo for Mother’s Day. There are so many awesome cutting files for this baby. So I used my gift card that came with it to purchase an adorable border which I fashioned as a frame for my image. I also picked up some cute photo corners.
Boy, is this cutter going to come in handy. I have some ideas for creating my own designs. And there are so many choices in the online store and I love the flexibility of making the files just the size I need. I have a Cricut and Design Studio but I’m limited to the shapes on the cartridges that I own and I can get a design for $.99 cents in the Silhouette online store without wasting a bunch of money to purchase a cartridge and only ever using a few shapes.
I created my own sentiment, “You’re Tweet” on my PC. You don’t need internet for that, ARGH!
These are the Copics I used to color my image.
