WMSC120 & Cameo Spotlight #6


Time for another attempt at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  I was so thrilled last week when my card was chosen for a Top Mouse Award along with Marybeth Lopez and Michelle Bala!  This week I created another Halloween card and brought in my Cameo to assist me with a spider web background.  I can't colour, never could.  They say that to develop creativity in children that you should let them colour outside the lines if they want, no problem for me!  When I was little I wanted my colouring to look like my older sisters, so I would get her to colour it for me!  She was 10 years older so of course her colouring was better.  I am one of 5 children and my family to this day will tell you that I am the creative one.  That may be true, but I still can't colour.  So Cicely may not be perfect but I am sure this is the best fussy cutting I have ever done--all limbs are accounted for.



I am also submitting this card to the Cameo Spotlight Challenge #6 which is to create a project for Halloween using your Cameo.  The spider web I had downloaded a long time ago but never used.  Love the way the Cameo cut the intricate designs.

Tracey...your coloring is just perfect, but I do understand and this is why I do not color at all (unless I am at school and coloring with the preschoolers). Fabulous card...I would have never believed you fussy cut out that sweet girl, now that is perfect!
