I love my new Silhouette machine!!!

Well I finally figured everything out, or should I say some things out and got a couple of things made tonight.  I am so excited at the potential this machine has!!! If you are considering getting one I say go for it, they are amazing!! Here are just a couple of things that I played with tonight.
 This is a simple flower that was cut out of white paper, I rubbed a pink chalk pad on the edges and then rolled the petals around a pencil, glued all the flowers together and put a pink button in the middle, so cute!
This is a card, the machine cuts it out, I used orange and then inked a contrast color with bronze and glued it down. So simple, I will have cards at my fingertips now!!!
And I love this. I took one of those cheap inexpensive glass jars from dollar store.  I wrapped it with this paper that I cut out, filled it with black beans, put a candle in and put some orange ribbon on the bottom.  I can change this out for different holidays, so easy!!! So this is what I have created in just an hour of playing with it.  My husband says "will we ever get you back!!!" I'm not so sure.  If you have any great ideas or projects I would love to see them.
