Masculine Card

I made this card for Father's Day, but it could easily serve as a masculine birthday card. I used my new Silhouette Cameo to design this card and it made things go so much quicker!! I love my Cameo!!

I designed the little tie in my Silhouette software and then cut it out on different papers. For the sentiment, I used Silhouette's "print and cut" feature - amazing! I absolutely love that feature!! It took care of the problem I always have of getting my sentiment in the perfect place and having a perfectly cut square or rectangle.

Get Paid for Shopping Online!!

Last week, I got a check in the mail for $10.17 because I had purchased an item online! By going through a site called Ebates, I am able to get coupons and cash back by shopping online! While most sites offer 4% cash back, I've seen as much as 16% cash back at certain sites! Now, that's the way to shop! It is so very worth it!!

There are many online stores that have coupons and cash back rebates via Ebates... Adorama, Calumet, Ritz Photography, JoAnn, Barnes & Noble, JCPenny, Kohl's... the list is quite extensive! They even have cash back on gift cards!!

There is no secret "catch" to it and this isn't a scam of some sorts. It's very legitimate and I've been doing it for over a year now. You won't get rich off of it, because it's not a money-making venture - remember you're shopping. Think of it like coupons or rebates because you actually get cash back.
Really, you have to check out Ebates, set up a free account, and start saving! Rig…

Little Bluebird

For as long as I can remember, my parents have had bird feeders and bird houses of some sort. They currently have a homemade bluebird house which has been occupied for the past few summers. This past week, I was able to catch a shot of one of their bluebirds! I just love the beautiful colors!
