Trying to post my 1st SVG file

So I'm finally trying to post one of the svg file I've made. It is a Gameboy Classic. I needed it for a Christmas page from a few years ago. I hope someone else can enjoy it. Click here to access it.

Christmas vinyl

Last December DCWV & Hobby Lobby came out with Holiday vinyl in a tube. It was rather expensive from $19.99 to 29.99 I think. Anyway in January I got a "Peaceful silent night on clearance for 3 or 4 dollars. The picture made it look pretty big and the regular price had been $24.99 I threw it in a Christmas tote and pretty much forgot about it. Since then I've discover how easy vinyl is to work with and found a great supplier in Expression Vinyl. When I pulled out decoration, I was stunned to see how dinky purchased vinyl saying was. So I added my own gold star using the start my Mamaw's Legacy Shepherd's card and the manger silhouette from Scrapping Table's Christmas set. I think it really looks good and have downloaded some great looking svgs this week I'm itching to try with vinyl. I got a few empty wall space that needs a little holiday dressing.

Playing Catch UP

Been playing catch up this week now that my daughter is home. It's been a crazy week. Slept in every day and I'm still so tired. Nice thing about having her home from school is that I haven't been running and I'm finally getting Christmas Cards done and a few projects. I really like the way my sister in law Valerie's present turned out, but hate that way my other sister in law Sandy's is coming out. :( I'll try and get some pictures of Val's up. We had a wedding pow wow tonight. Trying to get the wedding invites down to a number that will fit the reception in church's fellowship hall. Also been working some Christmas decorations. Pictures soon. Meanwhile still waiting for the liver numbers to return normal. Still no school yet! Riding to town for the Dr. appointment was really rough on her.

My girl is in the hospital

Update - November 16th

My dear husband got a wonderful birthday present. Our daughter came home last night. It was a very long 5 1/2 days. We feel so glad that she is such a fighter and still here with us. She still has a long road ahead of her, but at least we are home. Hopefully I can get some stuff in the Art room tomorrow since I can't go to Hollie's for the day. I'm so behind on Christmas presents, cards and everything.
My 17 year old daughter is being admitted into the hospital tonight for Mono and hepatitis. I'll be off the air for a few days at lest. Please keep her in your prayers.

Finallt Got Some Stuff Done

The 2 style of cards I made for the shut ins and military for church.

The Birthday Card I made for my friend Sandy. I used the cosmos 3-D flower from SVG Cuts. The words all came from the Wild Card. I used Silver Tinsel (outside) & Black Diamond (inside) embossing powder on them.

The gals & I went on a little adventure to a little store in Canton, IL. Scrapbooker's Dream where I had this wonderful stamp made. They also make custom scrapbook paper, laser cut files, leather, glass & wood engraving. We had a good day of fun.

I've been.....

Sorry I haven't posted anything for a while. I had the lovely H1N1 flu last week. It's so much not fun. Now I think I've gotten a sinus infection as an after effect to it. Yeah Me! So I haven't actually done much of anything for a while. I did do this fun picture for my nephew for Christmas and have several things ready to cut. I'm going to Hollie's today so hopefully I'll so Christmas cards made.
