Happy Patrick's Day

  Here is my St. Patrick's Day card with my Silhouette.
St patty

After visiting my local Archivers store I met Susanna Boyd from Paper Craft Planet.  I was talking with her and telling her that I was concerning the Silhouette DS  because I had no luck on my original and currently it was a big paper weight.  With her encouragement I decided to dust by Original Silhouette.

Honestly I never tried it out because I had old software and my computer has Vista on it.  I was just not sure it would installed.  Well I decided to load the new software and try it out.  Low and behold I had a Silhouette  download card because I got my machine from QVC and they had a great package. I found some paper as well.

All of that and I had not used it.  Shame on me.  Well I loaded the software and I got my images and it WORKED. 

This is what I made.

I am going to use this flower on a card.
