Good Books and Good Friends

Hi Everyone and Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I have some exciting crafty news to share . . . I have a Silhouette on the way!!! I'm SO excited! I LOVE my Cricut and will continue to use my Cricut but I am seeing so many awesome SVG files online as well that can't be cut with the Cricut anymore so I decided to take the plunge and get a Silhouette. I got a huge deal on it and I just can't wait :) I'm already playing with some SVG files online so I'll be all ready to cut when the machine gets here :) Anyway, onto my card for the day.





Isn't this cut adorable? When the Kate's ABCs Cricut Cartridge came out a while back, I just knew I had to have it. There are so many wonderful cuts on this cartridge, I LOVE it! I designed the card in my Gypsy. I cut the image and all the pieces out using SU cardstock. I put everything together, and then did some doodling with my white and black gel pens. Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from Basic Grey (Urban Prairie Collection . . . I just recently found this paper stack at Michael's really cheap on clearance so if you are looking for it, try your local Michael's, the papers are beautiful). I then adhered my image to my card base using dimensionals (I should buy stock in the company that makes these things, I think I use at least ten of them for each card I make :) ). I thought this sentiment was just perfect for this image; it's from an older MFT (My Favorite Things) stamp set. For some finishing touches, I added a bow, tied with my bow easy, pearls, dew drops, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you back here on Monday!
