C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-I-O-N

Hey everyone! Hope you've had a wonderful day!

Today is my youngest brother's birthday! Frank and I, decided to get him the Wii Fit since he has always wanted one!!! I also made him a birthday card, which he really adored! I was so happy because it was my first "paper piecing" creation *lol* :)

I had been contemplating for a long time in wether I should or not get myself a Cricut. Instead, after much research and thinking I settled for Quickutz Silhouette SD machine!!! Which I am now totally in love with!!!

For this project I did things a little bit out of the norm *lol* I couldn't imagine myself cutting and re-cutting again and again the same shape while using 5 to 6 different colored cardstock and then piecing them up together it just seemed like an endless task for me! Unless, I'm getting it all wrong?! You would tell me right, as I'm still quite new to this... :)

Anyways, instead I went into my Quickutz library and selected the froggy images seen on my card and cut them only once on a sheet of white Prism cardstock. I then colored each piece using my Copic markers! I am quite pleased at the results especially since it almost looks like I colored in stamps instead! I found the whole coloring part a breeze especially for an impatient person like myself who doesn't own many solid colored cardstock *lol*...




I hope you have enjoyed today's card!!! Have a wonderful week everyone! Hugs,

Nini
