I Have A New Toy

This is my newest toy. It's from Making Memories and it's called a Slice. You put these little design cards in the back of the machine and it cuts a lot of different images from 1 in to 4 inches. This little machine is so much fun to play with. And I almost forgot, it's cordless. You just plug it in and let it charge for 1 hour....... Here are some cuts I did while experimenting. Most of these are cut at 2 inches.

And for those looking for today's card, here it is. I did this one the other day using Wildlife Reserve and Warmest Regards stamp sets from SU. Card Stock colors are Always Artichoke and Chocolate Chip. The DSP is Juntos. I thought this would make a nice manly Birthday Card. Thanks for looking!

Time is Running Out

Well, the Holidays are almost over. Christmas has come and gone once again and now we think about another new year. As we get older it seems like the years come and go a little too fast. Anyway, I had a nice Christmas with family. We had dinner and gift exchange with my daughter, son-in-law and granddaughters Christmas Eve. Went to candle light service at church in the pouring rain, no white Christmas here, and enjoyed a quiet Christmas Day at home.

This week I decided it was time to clean out a few cupboards and get some things done around here. My next BIG project will be my craft room. My stamp sets need to be organized better so I know what I have. I was looking for a set the other day and found several that I forgot I even had, I mean I've had them several months and have never used them. How sad is that?

I did get a new toy while I was AWOL. It's called a Slice and it makes awesome die cuts. I'll show you a picture of it tomorrow.

OK, if you've stayed with me this far and are still wanting to see a card or something you're in luck. I found one that missed getting posted before Christmas. I made this one for my husband's brother and sister-in-law. She collects penguins and loves anything with penguins on it.
So, this is what I came up with for their Christmas Card. Sorry the photos aren't very good but you get the idea.

Thanks for looking......Rita
