My new toy

So it's been a while since I posted. After the debacle of having my painting rejected at the art exhibition, I took a little break from creative endeavors. Not for long though - since I got a new SILHOUETTE machine for Christmas. It is the ultimate craft toy that does everything from cut paper, vinyl, (and just recently) fabric, heat transfer, glass etching. Yes, it was a big surprise from my frugal and practical husband who generally only buys me things I need (instead of want). This machine has been so much fun. There are SO MANY things you can do with it. I've barely tapped into what it can do. But needless to say, I whipped up these cards fairly fast (now if I can only get out those thank yous in a timely manner, that would be good!)

Look how intricate the snowflake is!




This was for my son's birthday party:
