Exciting stuff and 4th of July card

Today, I am trying to work ahead and get my 4th of July cards done or at last a bunch of them done. I have a bunch of business travel coming up the month of July so I am trying to get ahead of things. 

But first, I have a few exciting things to shout out. 

First, I was selected as a FCCB - top 5 for the Don't Bug Me challenge. Yeah!!
I was also honored to be selected as a DT top 3 for the My Craft Spot What's Your Age challenge. Wow- what an exciting week of good news.

Now for what I think is the most exciting news of all today.....I just purchased a Silhouette Cameo.. it is out of the box, software installed and I am starting to play with it to see what it can all do. 

So, here was my very first project with this new machine-- I know it is very basic, but I had to do something with it right away before I get to more complicated stuff. This image and sentiment were purchased in the Silhouette online store. 


Card base is on kraft paper. Twine from Twinery and the paper was just leftover scraps from my stash--super simple. This cameo is gonna be fun!!!
