Love My Cameo! Your a Rock Star!

Hello beautiful people! It has been quite awhile since I have posted or blog hop to visit with you and I missed you.  Where have I been? Well, that is not an easy question for I haven't gone anywhere. I have been here in my own little world doing a whole bunch of nothing. You know sometimes I wonder just how much I should reveal or share on my blog for anyone or everyone else to read. Should I put my political or religious views? Should I talk opening about problems, health, families, friends or me?   Does it really matter or does anyone bother to read what we write. I know my friends do but what about the ones who just blog hop? . Do you forget about the persons blog you just visited or did they write something that caught your attention? I don't know the answers. I am a pretty open person and I do share things for if it helps just one person then it is worth it to me.    Have you ever seen the commercial where they say "depression hurts"  it is so true and it takes everything you have to climb back up out of a dark hole that has a hold on you. The past few days I have been able to see the light again and oh gosh it feels good. Abbie, my granddaughter and I  had manicures, pedicures and our hair cut today. We were pampered and we loved every minute!    This afternoon, I grab a cup of coffee,  sat out in the sunshine with the grandkids and dogs running all around - heaven!

This is a card I made for  my grandson, Travis who turned 11 this year. Guess what? Everything on this card was cut out with my Cameo, Silhouette including the digi! Look how good it cut him out right up to the line and you can learn how to do this in the current issue of  Through The Craft Room Door! The stars and Rock star were also cut with the Cameo...I love this machine.  I even took an rubber stamp, stamp, scanned and cut it out with my Cameo to perfection!  Anyhow Travis will always be a rock star in my eyes! He is one character who has you laughing all the time!

Fabulous card Colleen. I love the Kenny K image and your beautiful coloring. So happy to see a little more of the Cameo's work. I still can't justify getting one just yet.

Oh, gosh, Colleen, this card is just fabulous! I love the bright colors and papers. You did a great job coloring the image and it rocks that your Cameo cut it out so beautifully! Love the sparkle finish on this!
Hey, I am glad to see you blogging again! Sometimes we all get into a funk or two. I do understand, believe me! I blog about everyday stuff and try to inject a bit of humor into it. I do stay away from religion and politics, though. Never know when your thoughts can alienate another person. My daughter and I have such opposing views on both subjects that we just don't mention them! LOL! Stop by sometime! :^)
Hugs,
Penny

Good to see you found some light with your gdaughter and pets - sometimes we all have some 'off' times.......
Lovely card and I know just how you feel about the Cameo - they are such fun to use!! The only downside is that I now have so many projects on my 'To Do' list :)
