I finally Caved!!

I finally gave in and got a Cuttlebug. I received so many comments from people saying that their favorite technique was using their Cuttlebug that when I got my 50% coupon in the paper, I just had to give in! So far I'm finding it very fun to use, the kids love it too. I've just made 2 cards so far, and added a few embossed embellishments to one of my scrapbook pages. I got it for embossing primarily, but am happy to learn that my Sizzix dies work in it as well.

Here are the 2 cards I made so far, both pretty simple cards. Both cards use the same color scheme with 2 of the new In-Colors: Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky.

This one I made for this weeks sketch challenge on Splitcoast (SC131).
Stamps: Warm Words, Zoofari
Paper: Real Red, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi, Black, Confetti White
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Cuttlebug D'Vine Swirls Embossing Folder, Red Gingham, Close to Cocoa Watercolor crayon, blender pen

This one can be a cute birthday card for just about anyone.
