Silhouettes

Good morning to you! I am so glad today is Friday. I don't know why some weeks seem to drag by at a snail's pace, but this was definitely one of them. I need a bit of R and R! I have a card to share with you that I made a while back and completely forgot to post it. I had been on a silhouette kick and was creating lots of cards using them. I used my Cricut and the Child's Year cart to cut this little gal. I wanted to fill her wheelbarrow with something, and found some old Melissa Frances chipboard hearts in my stash. So I glittered them up a bit and stacked them inside the wheelbarrow. I added a bit of seambinding and a little tag I had cut using the Sentimental's cartridge.  She needed a bit of "grounding" behind her so I used Spellbinder's Label's Fourteen.  I inked the edges a bit to distress it.

We have a busy weekend ahead, cheerleading, and a little get together for Kyle's birthday.  My "little" guy is turning 15 next week! I am hoping for a bit of relaxation though on Sunday. 
Have a wonderful weekend! : )

Lovely card! I just love the sillouettes on a card. I just saw your 'Vintage' card in the new Cricut Families magazine. It is beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for the inspiration.
