I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries.

If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

A Few Cards Since My Last Posting and Information on Silhouette Blades

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 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 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--
We're off to watch the twins today...See you next time! Enjoy your day and have a great rest of the week!

Wow...I am impressed with your silhouette creativeness.....I am going to have to save all the info for when ever I can get "mine" your cards and think you did a fantastic job!! Had to laugh at the Hello Kitty darn cute!! I have been pinning tons of Sil. info on Pinterest for later, but this is the best so far!! But until then, I am still using my Cricut...enjoy the twins, we had a big winter storm here...

Hi Kelly

It is amazing how a little blade can throw is in the dark funk, I am so glad you got the Elkins and that they are working for you, that Silhouette shines under your hands, these cards are stunning, hugs

Love the red "Love you to the moon & back card. It's a step away from your norm and you pulled it off perfectly.
Hello Kitty is precious, she'll love it. Who would've thought Kitty would be sporting a mustache?
I like the way you cut the apple card - shaping it into a card instead of just attaching it to a rectangular card.
Tweety-bird . . . Really? Who likes Tweety????
and last but not least, gotta love those cute heart-shaped buttons. So many details, so many ideas!

I'd say these cards are pretty terrific for "not being your best work." Love the cards for your grandkids. I think I like Miss Kitty better with a mustache!

You already know I love, love, love all your inspire me every single time you share a blog post!

But now you've given me an outlet for blades and I will be eternally grateful for that. I'm going through blades a LOT, so this will save me big money...more to spend on something else!
