4th of July Firecracker

Good morning all.  Yesterday, I told you how much I love my Cricut Explore.  Today, I have to tell you how much I love my Silhouette.  I'm very lucky to have them both.  The card I'm sharing with you today was done using the Silhouette. I love all the different cards and images you can get from their store, especially the shaped cards.

From the pics above, you can see that the Silhouette also cuts beautifully.  I have had several people ask me what I think of both machines and which one I recommend.  That is very difficult for me because I love them both.  I find that the cricut is able to make more intricate cuts, it's quieter and user friendly.  The silhouette has a more sophisticated design program and allows you to do a lot more, but for me, not being very computer savvy in the first place, it is a little more difficult to use.  In the end I find that these two machines compliment each other, rather than compete against each other. Like I said, I love them both!

Supplies used for this card:

Silhouette Design # 60934
Red Cardstock - GinaK. - Cherry Red
White & Blue Cardstock ~ Paper Studio
Gold card stock - from scraps stash
Sentiment stamp ~ Cardz TV - Happy Days stamp set

I will be back tomorrow with a new challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room.
