I got a new toy today!!

One of my co-workers won this Silhouette Cameo last year.  She has yet to take it out of the box.  I asked her if she would be interested in selling it to me.  She knows my financial situation, but I was going to be reimbursed at work for several cards and would have the money soon to pay her...something...LOL  Not as much as it is valued at, but something!  She said she would go home and think about it over the weekend.  Yesterday she came into work and said "how about $75?"  Uhmmm...pardon my language, but Hellz ya!
So she brought it in to me today (I still owe her most of the $$) and I came home from work and got it all hooked up!  I'm so excited!  I made her a Thank You card!  This is my first make!  I added some lace, ribbon and gems, but other than that (not counting the base cardstock), this was all cut using my new toy!!  :D

Thanks for looking!
