New toy

Hi, everyone. Surprise! A post that isn't scheduled.
I won a new toy at the end of March. It took a while to get here but it found it's way home on May 1st. Can you guess what it is?
I am the winner of a new Silhouette Portrait! Thanks to Linda Kaiser of Paper Boutique and the generosity of Silhouette America. I was and still am blown away. I have never won anything like this before.
So I've been playing and learning how to use the free software. As some of you know, computer programs and I don't always play well together. So I haven't upgraded to the Designer software yet.
But I'm working at it. I have to tell you, I LOVE this machine already! The cuts are so precise. Love, love, love it!
I've been experimenting with different cuts and procedures of the program, lots of 3d. (which I love)
So with this cute watering can I am entering my first Silhouette challenges.
3d watering can - Silhouette store
Doily pieces - Samantha Walker file
Peachy Keen face and googly eyes

This fun project works with 3 challenges:
Silhouette Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
2 Creative Chicks - googly eyes
Silhouette Blog - use Samantha Walker doily file
 Not too bad for my first S project, huh? Thanks again to Linda Kaiser and Silhouette America.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
