I am really really loving my new explore! The silhouette only comes out now when its a file that I created there (and until I redo all those files, I'll continue that way! lol)

I had the striped card base so I just created 2 mats out of linen paper and adhered with my ATG gun. The Ribbon is from 3GirlJam and the sentiment and sign stake is both from Jaded Blossom. My adorable big foot is from Cricut's Campin' Critters cartridge. He is up on pop dots for a little dimensional look. 

Up next is Veronica

Click HERE
 to be brought to Connie's blog where you can get all details and link up your project! 

Here's what I made for the challege ~

I used my new explore for everything on this card! I'm still learning how to use it, but am really loving it! I just wish I can convert all my silhouette files to svg and I would be set! 

The bear is from Create a Critter 2, the card base is from Decorate! Celebrate!. The red and white drops are from Connie's eBay shop, and the bear is on a wobble! I also used a black pen to have the explore write on the card =) 

Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you link up!
