A Sassy Sketch

I get to play in Sassy Cheryl's challenge this week - woo hoo - not something I can do as often as I would like!  The challenge is to use the sketch provided and I decided to flip mine for a wee bit of interest. 

I am visiting at my Sassy friend Shirley's house in Mississippi and she has been teaching me about the Silhouette Cameo so I laid out my card with the it even printing and cutting this little girl using the Cameo. - so easy.

This card is a little different for me because it is a lot more clean and simple than what I normally do and I didn't manage the scale as well as I should have but it was fun to do and you have to love this little girl

Shirley is a whiz at this machine and I have learned so much from her this week.  We even did some image designing together - two heads are better than one sometimes. Now there is no excuse when I go home, I better be using my Cameo to do more. 

When we weren't crafting we walked, watched some TV, chatted up a storm, laughed a lot and ate yummy food.  All in all a great time and I am so glad I got to come for a visit - Shirley has been a lovely hostess.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
