Words from the Heart - Sugar Nellie


This was one of those cards we have all dealt with... you know, every single little thing that can go wrong does.  The final straw was after colouring and gluing the image down, I discovered it was the scrap piece, not the 'good paper' piece.  And of course I can blame it on my Silhouette... I blame everything on that machine but what happened this time is I accidently used the piece I'd done a test cut on, not the good one, which was considerably smaller and not printed on the cheap Staples cardstock.  I wasn't very happy with how the colours were blending and once it was firmly stuck down, I found out why. So being, perfectly honest, it was more operator error (me!) than the Silhouette.
This kitten is a digi image called Words from the Heart and is available at the Funky Kits shop.
