I get it!

Do you remember when you just had that feeling of Ah Ha but then realized it was a 'well duhh' moment? I had mine today. I've had my Cricut for a little while now but never really played with it. I started to play today on my Furlough. I'm thinking I'm getting it now! I have the SCAL program and have several cool SVG down loads. I used one of the down loads for my exploding box a while back and loved it! Well, today I stamped and colored an image but didn't want to just cut her out like a square. She deserves better then that! ;) I remember seeing on Penny Duncans blog that she thought you how to cut out an image with out messing it up. So I gave it a shot, crossed my fingers and covered my eyes. IT WORKED! YAY!!! I can't tell you how excited I am! So after that hallelujah moment... I used some new paper I got last week which I'm so loving! BasicGrey Hello Luscious. yummy! Then I used another new toy I got from MFTS. My beautiful die-namic for the scallop. The stamp is and Elizabeth Bell from Sugar Nellie.
This card only took me a couple of hours to make! OK well, most of that time I couldn't take my eyes off of the screen to watch Burlesque. This is a MUST see movie. Wish I saw it in theaters.

K... Off to play some more! Have a great weekend!
