Life's a Game

Hello Everyone! 
Our son is turning 30 next month (yikes, how did that happen?).  He's always loved video games, and even as an adult, that hasn't changed.  This is the card I came up with for him.  The shape of the controller came from a file at the Silhouette On-Line store.  I manipulated it to form the shaped card base (in white).  The Not Quite Navy (SU) cardstock was stamped with a crinkle background stamp by Rubbernecker.  The 30 is made out of silver glitter paper (SU).  All pieces were cut wth the fabulous Silhouette Cameo.  Did I ever tell you how much I love my machine?  :-)  The sentiment on the inside reads "Even though you're turning 30, life is still fun and games".  Kind of cheesy?  Maybe, but I think he'll love it! 
Thanks for stopping by.

Sneaker with Bling

Hi Everyone!  I love my Silhouette Cameo and making themed cards is so much fun for me right now.  I selected a shoe file from the Silhouette On-Line store to use here. 
This card is for my niece.  She's in those "tween" years, so I thought this would be perfect for her.  I broke the sneaker electronic file down into its various pieces and cut them from a few different papers.  I added eyelets, threaded ribbon and tied a bow.  For a finishing touch, I stamped "cool!" with some alphabet stamps I have had forever.  And, what would a girly sneaker be without some bling?  I had just the right color rhinestones for the job.  The sentiment is from MFT and the tab pull at the bottom of the card is done with a die and stamp set from PTI "Movers and Shakers Sentiments".
