Get Well~Hope!!~My New Toy!!!!

Happy Wed.!

Hi~ya All!

How is everyone on this early Wednesday morning? It is 1:30 a.m. here and I'm trying to post on my blog. I need to be sleeping but I wanted to share this card I created for my good friend Carole Beathe. She is one of my design team sisters, and also a member of the Cricut MB. She asked if we could create a card for one of her friends who is very ill. I told her "sure Carole, not a problem." Well this is what I came up with. My friend Julie was the first to cut out this awesome beauty, and when I saw it I knew I had to have it. Julie also helped me while I was in digital design school last week. Thank you Julie! Oh yeah, I was trying to learn inkscape, and actually my daughter got me into an awesome professor's class. He even skip the prerequistes for me. Last week I went thru 23 basic lessons, and I'm just beginning to learn some of the other things. Wasn't that too cool? I used my SCAL to cut out this gorgeous rose, which was a free down-load from Lily-Boo's boutique. If you haven't check out her digital design stamps, you're in for a real treat. Back to the card, if you would be interested in how it was created, be sure to check out my new blog, "Um Buggin's Cricut Cuts & Stamps!. I should hopefully have the information posted there later on today. I will be using UBCC&S, for our group workshops, Stampin'Up!, and SCAL which will be starting soon. Be sure to check back!
