I Won!!!

I am so excited I just had to post my good fortune.  Last week I entered a giveaway on The Paper Boutique for a Silhouette Portrait.  Today Linda notified me that I won.  Can you believe it?  I have seen many of the bloggers I follow add these cutting machines to their craft rooms but I never thought I could justify the expense.  Now I will get to see what all the fuss is about.

I will have to wait awhile before I actually get a chance to use it.  For those of you just joining me, I am in the sunny (but cool) Gulf coast of Alabama until mid-March.  Once I get home, I will have to get back to my card making to enter some challenges before I tackle learning a new machine.  I am going through craft withdrawal and looking forward to getting back in the swing of things.

I'm still all atwitter about my win.  And I can't forget that I won a stamp set and ink pad last week from Tracy at Owl be Craftin'.  Thank you to both ladies for sponsoring the giveaways.


  1. Have you ever wondered where you can store your personal library.

    You are doing lots of the 'right' things to achieve those big goals
    of yours. Reading a Skill Book will permanently boost that
    skill by 3 skill points (4 with the Comprehension perk).

    1. It's already overwhelming, Kelly, and I haven't even seen it yet, although I have watched their video. Fortunately I catch on to things easily and I'm hoping that's the case with using this machine.
