I got a Silhouette!!

Hey everyone!
So my birthday was the 11th and my boyfriend had kept asking me what I wanted. I just couldn't decide until I was reading a blog post late the night before and they had made a project with their silhouette, it was almost like a light bulb went off in my brain and I practically screamed I WANT A SILHOUETTE!! Then came the realization that I asked for a very expensive present... But being the amazing man he is without a blink said it was mine if that's what I really wanted. It came yesterday. =) Thank goodness Amazon is so close and even free shipping only takes a few days to get to me! I was so antsy and I wanted to make sure that I knew what I was doing when it arrived that besides a fathers day card I didn't craft at all last week. I have been watching videos and am super excited to get to use digi's for the first time. I never have before because me cutting something out by hand would not look very nice and might possibly be missing a head or leg or something. 

Here's a look at a my fathers day card. It's quite simple but I knew my dad would love the shape.

I just cut an inch in on a white card base and folded the little tabs I had made over so they looked like a collar and then cut out a tie from DCWV guy stack paper, added a couple buttons and viola! easy and simple. I knew I had to make it quick since I was so tired from our vacation to the coast. I also have to share this amazing pic from our cottage at sunset.

Hope everyone has a great day!
