Ready to Soar...

Hello and Happy Monday Morning Everyone! Sorry I was MIA these past 2 weeks....
It's been crazy, and  I've spent a lot more time than even I would like to at my store!
I believe I should be back to "somewhat" normal again very soon....
My Sale was busy and a HUGE hit! I Love it when that happens! :o)
So we are following up with a couple more sales throughout July....
We have Pioneer Days towards the end of July, which will be
crazy busy yet again, so I think once I get past that I should
be back to some kind of crafting/blogging schedule! :o)
So if you could just bare with me until I get through it :o)

I have a project for you today that I created for my
son's friend who graduated H.S. in early June....
My son went down to Vegas to visit him and attend
his Graduation party and of course I couldn't let
him go without one of my cards to give his friend! :o)

I used  Lori Whitlock's - Scalloped Center Step Card 
3D Hot Air Balloon
All from the Silhouette Store

I used the Print and Cut Feature for the Designer Papers
Carta Bella - Well Traveled (Jessica Sprague Site)
(Ready to Soar....) Computer Generated

I reconfigured the shape to make an inside
layer for my Sentiment.... This took a little
time, but well worth the results!

The Weekly Silhouette Blog Challenge is challenging
everyone with a Silhouette Machine to make something
with a 3D Shape! I thought this card fit the bill to a T!

Over at Jo's Scrap Shack the Challenge is Anything Goes!

Over at Through the Craft room Door the Challenge is Anything Goes!

Over at 2 Creative Chicks the Challenge is 3D!

Well... that's all I have for today! Thanks so much for
stopping by! I really appreciate it!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
