Good Morning! Yep, it's me...I'm alive and well. Sorry it has been sooooo long since my last posting. I just don't have the countless hours like I used to, to spend on the Internet. Many of you know that I recently got a Silhouette Cameo. Not being a newbie to the world of cutting machines, when the machine wouldn't cut a straight line without tearing the paper, I knew there was a problem so I called Silhouette. They sent me a new blade and mat and I was back in business. I was ready to cut my losses and set the machine along side of my Cricut and Gazelle to collect dust when I had gone through 2 blades and only made 3 cards.That was when my blogger friend Sandi came along. She turned me on to the Silhouette forum where I learned of a blade alternative. A little confused as to which blade to order, I emailed Mark with Elkin Creek Vinyls, he responded within minutes advising me which blades and blade holder would work best in my Silhouette Cameo. I had my new blades and holder within 2 days and couldn't be happier. If you are a Silhouette owner, you know how pricey the blades are..The blades from Elkin Creek are precision blades and the holders fit perfectly in the Silhouette. Don't let your Silhouette sit to collect dust, contact Mark...he will fix your right up...you won't find better blades or customer service ANYWHERE! My blogger friend Kim from New Jersey gave me a tip on resticking the Silhouette mats (which are also pricey)...diluted Aleene's Tack It Over and Over...works great! With the combination of blades and mats, I'm good to go and LOVE my Silhouette!
Here are a few of the cards I've made since my last posting...not my best work, but they'll have to do. I'm going to have to post and run...if you need more information, don't hesitate to email me---
These next 3 are for our granddaughters in Tennessee. Since we don't get to see them as much as we would like, we send them a little cash from time to time. Yeah, Hello Kitty with a mustache is on the corny side. Our middle granddaughter Chloe loves Hello Kitty but recently is into mustaches...go figure--
