Silhouette Cameo

My new Silhouette Cameo came in on Thursday and I immediately put it to good use making crafty stuff for the house.  The first thing I made was a vinyl "welcome" sign for my front door.  So, my front door that used to look like this:

Now looks like this today:

I'm so pleased with the way the machine works and the way the sign came out.  If only I could learn how to attach things in a straight line, sigh.  Aldo was very quick to point out how crooked the lettering was, but it really doesn't bother me all that much, yet. :)  I have a feeling I'll be using this machine a whole lot more than my Cricut.  While my Cricut sat unused on a shelf, this new Cameo is sitting right on my desk within easy reach and readily attached to my computer.

I painted the front door last Saturday using some left over paint from another project.  I was expecting it to be a more burgundy red, but was pleasantly surprised by the pretty, deep orange it reflects in the sun.  I think it works with the brick.  Now the only think left to do is paint the wood trim white and add some Thanksgiving decor to our tiny entryway.

I have a couple of cards that I made this week, I'll try to take pictures and post them later on in the week.

Have a great weekend!!

Miss You A Latte

Happy Tuesday everyone!!  I have a card to share with ya'll today :)  I made it this weekend for MFT's weekly sketch.

I finally broke down and ordered MFT's Miss You A Latte stamp set.  It's been on my wish list since it came out, but I wasn't sure I'd use it much.  I broke out my new My Mind's Eye paper pads, some silk ribbon that's been on my desk for a while and dusted off my sadly neglected copics.

I'd meant to post this on Saturday but there was a pet emergency in our house.  Let's just say that I didn't know that such a tiny cut on a dog's ear could bleed so much!!  Every time we thought it was slowing down, Snicks would shake his head and splatter blood EVERYWHERE!!  It was such a mess!  We finally got his ear bandaged up and we have now determined what our next home improvement project will be: repainting the bathroom.  Poor puppy, luckily, he's doing much better now. :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
