Got my Silhouette!

Finally, after weeks of waiting, the postman delivered my Silhouette...Yay!!!   I was very excited to pull it out of it's box, and immediately had to find something to do with it LOL!

Lucky enough, I had a chance to play with a new set of vintage Christmas Ephemera from Quirky Twerp at the Digichick shop, that I was able to quickly and easily set up a cut file for in the Silhouette, so I could show off to hubby the neat print and cut features of the machine.
To make the background, I used a digi paper/shape from the  Valentine Retrospect scrapbooking set, also by Quirky Twerp (am I not creative??!  who else would be using Valentine papers for a Christmas card LOL!)

After printing and cutting the base and the puppy, I simply embellished with some ribbon, dew drop, and the punched holly is from a Martha Stewart punch.

Best news--it only took about 15m to put it together!  I love colouring, but sometimes I also love not having to colour :-)

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Creative Cutting Challenge - Christmas card (using digital files)
The Paper Girls Challenge - Christmas or Winter
