HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! THANK YOU CARD - Samantha Walker and Silhouette

HI Everyone!!!  Oh my goodness, it's been so long since I've done a post of our blog, I hope I can remember how to do it!!  Life for me has been so busy the past couple of months with work and homework for Jacob who is in the 7th grade.  He is working on things that I didn't have to do until high school or college.

Well, I actually went into my "happy space" the other day after months of neglect.  I came out sneezing from all the dust that was on all my machines and paper.  So after I dusted everything off, I sat down to make some Thank You cards.  Let's just say that it had been so long since being in there, I couldn't find some of the supplies that I "knew I had" and still haven't found them - HA!!!!  But I know they're in there somewhere!!!

I decided to use my Silhouette Cameo to make the Thank You cards for a couple of reasons.

1.  Easy peazy
2.  Been so long since I'd made anything, I couldn't come up with an idea of my own.

I downloaded the Thank You card kit from the Samantha Walker gallery and quickly began cutting out all the different pieces.  I used my Cuttlebug Snowflake Embossing Folder to emboss the top layer of the card and then cut out the snowflake from glitter paper.  I was all sparkly from the glitter paper after making the cards - teehee!

I assembled the cards after all the pieces were cut.  I was able to find a blue brad to attach the snowflakes to the cards.

All in all, I think it turned out pretty cute for my first card after months of non-creativity!!  Thank you for stopping by today, we appreciate your visits and your comments.  I hope you'll come back tomorrow.  I have a birthday card that I made for a "fishing fanatic" to show you.
