House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge-Something NEW!

We're back!  House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge is back for 2012! Although we all enjoyed a wonderful holiday break, it is always nice to get back to the ink!

For this challenge, we are asking you to use the theme NEW! That can be a new stamp, new papers...pretty wide open! In my case-I have a brand spankin' new baby nephew born December 23rd, so this card is for little Nicholas. Welcome sweet baby!

Now, I know if you have followed the last several posts, you know I have a new Silhouette machine(an electronic cutting machine) so you had to know this was coming LOL! I have had so much fun playing with my new toy. I really love the software it comes with too! It is sooooooo easy to use! I struggled with Cricut/SCAL as I am not too techie, but this software was so easy. Of course, I have the benefit of knowing SCAL so I am sure that made my learning curve much easier.

I used several files from the Silhouette Online Store and a sweet Stampin' Up! sentiment!

Feed Meeeee!!!!!!

I hope you can join us for our first challenge of 2012!

Our sponsors this week are Simon Says Stamps and Pizzazz A Plenty.

Sue sue sue.....awesome and congratulations on that brand spankin' new nephew. I so love my silhouette too. Obviously you are doing just fine getting around and don't seem to need any help. The other beauty of it is that there is even more to it but you can jump right in an use it just doing the basics.
