A Little Birdie Told Me....

Hi Everyone and Happy Memorial Day!! I hope everyone had a fun filled weekend. We went to a great BBQ yesterday and today my kids both walked in the Parade we have in the center of town. Both with their schools. I just love a parade. Especially Memorial Day. I always well up when those wonderful Veterans walk by. Applauding just does not seem to do justice for what these courageous men and women have done for our country. KWIM??

Anywhoo....I did get in a good amount of crafting this weekend and I rediscovered the beauty of my MM Slice Machine. I have 4 different cartridges and they all make such wonderful shapes and letters. Like the curvy shape that is on my card today. Bet you were thinking there were new nesties out that you have not seen!! NOPE, my Slice!! Whoo Hoo! This was a quick little card I made just to play with the cartridges I had. My stamp and sentiment are both from Inkadinkadoo and they are stamped onto PTI cardstock with Ruby Red ink. My dp is from the Wild Raspberry pack from K & Co. and my cardstock is from SU. Brads, flowers and buttons were from stash. Quick and easy.

So thanks for stopping by for a visit. I will have more to show you in the next few days and of course Wednesday if Flutterby day and for this week (I will give you a head start) you need to use brads or eyelets along with your butterfly or fairy. Cant wait to see what you come up with. Have fun and have a great night.

This is great. Do you like the slice? Is it easy to use? Do you have a Cricut? I have neither so I'm full of questions.

Hugs,
