Hey y'all............I'm back!!!!

If you wondered what happened to me, I've been busy for the past couple of weeks with company.  My youngest son, his wife and my two grandsons came from Alabama for the Labor Day weekend and it was such a short visit but we had a really good time!!!  The day after Labor Day I had a follow-up appointment with my gastroenterologist, who had done an endoscopic and colonoscopy procedure on me on August 19th and I got really good news................he said that if all of his patients were like me he would be "out of business" and he will see me again in ten years!!!  Then a couple of days later my oldest son came to visit for about five days and we a very nice visit...but for right now, I am "companied out"...LOL!

So enough about all of that and back to crafting.  Yesterday morning I got an email from You Tube directing me to a new Silhouette video "How to Create Layered Cardstock Stickers" and I decided to play with it and this is what I came up with!

I used a file from Miss Kate Cuttables.  It was the free file from August 25, 2013 called "Pretty Bird on a Branch" and I thought it would make an adorable layered sticker and it did!  Also, I did not use sticker paper...I just used some "white smooth" Bazzill.  I did make a separate eye and I used Inkssentials "Glossy Accents" on it.  I also used Stamp-n-Stuff "Star Dust Transparent" embossing powder on some of the flowers and heat set it.  The little flower on her cheek is actually "nail art" and I finished the flowers off with gold half pearls in the centers.  Oh, I see so many possibilities with this. You can watch the Silhouette video here, so go have some fun!!!!  See you again soon!

Papers:  Bazzill "Smooth White"
Ink:  VersaMark "Watermark" and Stamp-n-Stuff "Star Dust Transparent" embossing powder
Tools:  Silhouette "Cameo", Ranger "Heat It"

Hi Hon

So great to hear your news, you must be relieved and happy!!!

Loving your creation such a happy card, thanks for the video link.

I purchased a Silhouette machine in February this year as a back up to my Pazzle. We don't have a UK distributor at the moment so decided to get a back up machine just in case!

Not used it yet as still plodding along with my Pazzle. There are now so many beautiful files for the Silhouette, looking forward to seeing more from you.

Hugs from across the pond :-) xxx
