No Lion

Ok, we had a bit of a snafu with a less-than-speedy bank employee and it delayed closing of the sale of our house for...awhile. But we're in our new place now and I'm getting everything organized.   I REALLY missed my craft room!  You guys, I seriously think I was going through withdrawals! Since it took us longer than expected to move, it has taken me longer than expected to get my craft room up and running.  I'm hoping this will be the last of my pre-made posts and I'll be back to creating new projects and joining in challenges soon. 

This was one of my early experiments with shaped cards.  I kind of cheated though- I had made the lion for a door decoration for my office at an old job, and when I left there I brought it home.  I basically measured it, cut two shadows of the same size (in safari green, I thought it was fitting) and just threw it together.  I felt so guilty about how quickly it came together that I used Cotton Candy Stickles on his cheeks and tongue to add another touch.  

Also, after saving up gift cards since Christmas, I finally had enough money to buy my Silhouette Cameo!  I had it shipped to my parents' house so I knew it would be safe until the move was over, and just picked it up a couple of days ago! Time to start learning how to use it!
