First SCAL card

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well with you :o)


Well, what a start to my day! I got up at 6am to get myself in the shower as I had a ten past eight appointment for my NHS check. Ten minutes before setting off the 'phone rang and it was the surgery saying that my appointment was postponed until February because the nurse was sick grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr  I could have had another hour in bed!
Anyway, I digress. I have spent 3 days playing with my new SCAL software, updating my old Cricut to suit it and here is the fruit of my labours!
Frame and large flutterby cut with SCAL, said flutterby being a free svg from Penny Duncan. The other flutterbies are from Martha Stewart punches and all are cut/punched from MME card. Flower stamp is from Funstamps and they are coloured with copics, HOTP paper and ribbon from stash, the paper being embossed with C/bug embossing folder.
I am now going to celebrate by going to George's Tradition for a fish salad :o)

Lovely card Jackie. Don't play enough with my Cricut, maybe if it wasn't hiding amongst so much clutter I would find it more user friendly! Enjoy your salad, sounds tastier than my Cup a Soup! Carolx

Lovely card Jackie - such pretty colours and love the frame :o) I've got SCAL too, just figuring it all out, but think I'll probably use a combination of SCAL and cartridges... not sure if it would stop me buying cartridges altogether. Lisa x
