Good Morning to Ya!

I have created a little card for the Copic Creations Challenge Blog which must include shading around your image. I created this cute little bird celebration card for my nephew who is having a special Bird-day! LOL!

I also created a monchromatic card for the challenge at CMC Copic Challenge Blog and used this darling Elisabeth Bell image Little Rapunzel. Isn't she just darling! I colored her with all the E50s.

Chinese Tilda was created for a group that I am forming at Simply Scrapping Crafts for all of you that love the Magnolia images! In this group I am having a challenge in which you must use velum in your project. I used velum behind each of the panes in Tilda's screen. I am pretty happy with the results. What do you think?

This past week has been a serious of ups and downs! I was way up as my brand new Cricut Imagine arrived. I was so excited but at the same time intimidated. I took my new Imagine out of the box after it had been setting for two days, unpacked it, and carefully watching the video and reading the manual began calibrating all of the settings. Wow! It worked! I was so excited! I picked a simple image to print and cut just to get the feel of this new machine and it printed fabulously!! Then waiting for the cut.....nothing, dang it! I read over the manual again....begin recalibrating..... and still nothing! I checked the message board and sure enough another unlucky lady had the same problem. I contacted Provo Craft and they tell me that the cutting board inside the machine is not working. Dang IT! I now have to send my brand new Imagine back to Provo Craft which they will replace but I am looking at several weeks before I get the new one. Dang It! All the while my beloved Gypsy is also gone as it too needed replaced! I was hoping to play with my new Imagine while my beloved Gypsy was gone but now they will both be gone! Dang It! Oh well... at least they will both be good as new in a few weeks.

I am off to Colorado again soon I hope! I have to wait for my email with my return label to return the Imagine before I head out. Just pray I don't miss the gorgeous fall colors!

Big Hugs!
