Silhouette Card

Well, I tell you what LOL,,,,,,,it was a longgggggggggg 24 hours waiting for Silhouette to get their server up and running LOL but I have to give props to them,,,,,,,,their Customer Service is fantastic!

They tried to help me, but they were still having SOME problems,,,,,,,,,and of course, they just happened to affect me,,,,,,,,,,,BUT they called me back (shock!!) when the problems were fixed and walked me through how to get all my images,,,,,,,,

then I had cutting problems ROFL.  A bad blade was partly to blame, so a trip to Michaels brought me a new blade,,,,,,,,

I do NOT like the Silhouette cutting mats,,,,,,,not not NOT,,,,,,,so a cut down Cricut mat works amazingly well,,,,,,,,

and VOILA,,,,,,,perfect, amazingly beautiful, highly detailed cuts!!!!!!!!

I'm in 7th heaven now that I've found my Silhouette's "sweet spot" (blade depth 3, speed 2 or 3 depending on intricacy, thickness 30),,,,,,,,

and I had the best time making this sweet little spring card today!!!

Hope you like it!

Card Recipe:

Paper: Coordinations smooth card stock, GA Pacific white cardstock
Stamps: NONE NONE NONE!!!!!!!
Diecuts: Silhouette Online Store except the bunny is a trace of a digi stamp
Flowers: REcollections

I am really loving my Silhouette today,,,,,I've cut some amazingly gorgeous die cuts I can't wait to use on my cards!

Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a lovely weekend!
