Paper Pieced Card & Question of the Day Regarding Provo Craft...

These cute little paper pieced jewels can be found at Treasure Book Designs.  It's the I Love U Slowly file.  I couldn't resist adding them to my "Feel Better" card as I knew they could cheer anyone up...sick or not. :)

Know what I've been practicing???  Eyes...yes, I am still trying to get the hang of doing eyes with wispy long eyelashes.  I still have a long way to go, but I am improving. :)
Also...the bunny's nose is pink in person, but the picture makes it look white.

Question of the day - For those that are familiar with Provo Craft and the Gypsy...why do they allow some ebay auctions for the Gypsy with linked cartridges to sell and other auctions are ended???  If selling a Gypsy with linked cartridges is a violation of the EULA...shouldn't all auctions be ended???
  Also...shouldn't they provide a way for us to unlink our cartridges so we may sell it if we so choose???  Especially since they no longer manufacture it???  

Have I mentioned lately that I Love my Silhouette???  They have great customer service, too!

String of Hearts - Valentine Card

My second project using the Silhouette Cameo.  I can't say enough... how much I Love it and Love how it cuts...AMAZING!  Not to mention the endless sources available for Adorable svg files.  So Fun! :) 

This cute little girl is from the Will U be my Valentine collection from Scrapping Bug Designs.  You can visit them HERE.  I must work on the eyes.  I would love to add  long wispy eyelashes, but that does not seem to be my talent at the moment, LOL!  I will keep practicing! :)  

I must admit I was very intimidated at the thought of going to a cutting system that operated without cartridges.  I was afraid I would get it only to find it frustrating, time consuming and hard to use.  I can now say...that's not the case at all.  There is a small bit of learning, but once you have the basics you will see it's not that difficult.  For this card I was able to load the mat ONE time and get all the cuts I needed to create it.  With the exception of the hearts on the ground that I decided to add as an afterthought.  A true time saver in the end.
