Courage

I thought this sentiment was just perfect for this month's celebration!  How thought provoking, "Change is what happens when you take small steps of courage."  Don't you love that?  I am also using some great Turkish Lace on this card along with some adorable floral confetti.  The stamp is from Unity stamps.

Question of the day, ???

do you have a die cut machine(s)?  what kind?

I have TOO many to fess up to, but I mostly use my big shot and my cuttlebug.  I don't want to admit to the others lol!!

Pretty card and great sentiment! I have a Big Shot, I like to use the larger metal dies to cut my main image out.

Cuttlebug, and their early digital machine that I never use. Want a larger machine but there's no rush.... :)

Wow, what a gorgeous card and such a beautiful sentiment! I have a Big Shot at home and a Cuttlebug at our place up north. The Gemini Junior has been on my wish list for some time and it arrived on my doorstep yesterday - so excited to play with it!

Candy Meyers said...

Another cute image. I have a vagabond which I use most of the time. I do use my cuttlebug once in a while. I also have a Wizard but rarely use it.

I do have a die cut machine.... I LOVE dies! I have a Spellbinder Platinum6. I also have a Cuttlebug, which I use mostly with my embossing folders!

Jean said...

Super cute card. I have one die cutter. Gave away the baby bug that I never used.

Amy Martin said...

Such a beautiful image and sentiment!! I have the big shot and the cuddle bug.

Rachel Duong said...

I love this card so much. She is so beautiful and paired with the lace, it is perfect. I have always admired this girl, I might need to add her to my wishlist! I have a cuttlebug and a Cricut. I use my cuttlebug all the time and need to use my Cricut more often!

Karenladd said...

What a pretty card, and the floral confetti adds such a fun touch! I have a Big Shot and a Spellbinders Platinum 6. The Big Shot is my main die cutter and I keep the Spellbinders next to it to do embossing so that I don't have to keep switching the platform tabs on my Big Shot. I LOVE my die cut machines!

Suzanne H said...

That is a wonderful sentiment and a lovely card. I have a Cuttlebug but was thinking of replacing it since my plates are so worn out.

Nikki said...

You're card is so delicate looking and i own a big shot only which 8s perfect for my small space

* Shell B.* said...

Beautiful card Holley, awesome Unity stamp! The main die cut machines are Spellbinder Caliber and a Cuttlebug

Frances Freeman said...

Love your card. Congrats again on 10 years. I use the cuttlebug I love it!!!!

SHartl said...

Oh, this card is so beautiful with the gorgeous image and that pretty lace! I don't think I would be able to bring myself to use my lace on a card and send it out, lol! I don't have a die cut machine but I borrow my mom's Big Shot when she comes to visit and she die-cuts shapes for me when I request them. I love using die cut designs so should probably give in and get myself my own Big Shot.

Marjeta said...

I use Big Shot. I love this card with gorgeous sentiment and image.

Vivian Foo said...

No I do not own a die cut machine, Im still considering as dies are pretty expensive.

Phaline Mays said...

Beautiful card! I do have my 20 yr old big shot. She does me right. I love my old girl!

Penny Mann said...

I have a Big Kick, Gemini Jr, Cameo and a Scan n Cut, and no time to play with all of them.

Em Louise Fairley said...

Cute card, Holley. I have a Big Shot which has recently cranked back into use after over a year of inactivity xoxo

Karthikha said...

I love this beautiful stamp and the sentiment!! Perfect! I own a Cuttlebug back in India, and now I have a Gemini Junior after moving to the US :)

papersmiles said...

Beautiful card. The sentiment is exactly where I have been over more than a year. Lots of small steps forward and gradually gaining ground....smiling. Like you I have waaaay too many die machines and embossers. My favorites are the Big Shot and Spellbinder's Platinum. Hugs, Barbara

Linda Simpson said...

Beautiful card, love the sentiment. I have a cut n boss die cutting machine.
Hugs

Sindhu said...

Beautiful card...coloring is awesome...i have big shot ...

Rhonda Miller said...

This is beautiful. I love that sentiment. I have a Big Shot and a Cricut and am planning on a Scan and Cut.

Claudia Martins said...

I bought one now, I still need to buy knives and become familiar with the use.

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

I agree. That sentiment is a good one. I never thought about change that way. I have a Big Shot.

Shelley said...

That's a gorgeous image and card! Love it. I'm thinking I better plead the 5th about those die cut machines [wink].

Such a pretty image! I love how you color hair!

I used to have an old lever sizzix machine, but I sold it. I've had a cuttlebug for a while. I like it, but it kinda wears me out. I use it a good bit, but It's kinda heavy, and I'm not real strong anymore. For my birthday my partner got me a Sizzix Sidekick. I love that tiny little thing! It's small, so it's in my papercraft tool box, and it's pretty light, so easy to move around. The thing only cuts 2.5x3.5 inch dies, but I use small dies quite a lot anyway. I highly recommend them! I have 2 12 inch dies, that I need to get the long plates for the cuttlebug. I expect I should put that on my list.

DJ said...

I love this sentiment. It is very appropriate for today as my youngest daughter and her husband had their gender reveal party at my house today. This may be their only child as they need IVF (2nd attempt) to have this child. It is a Boy! I have a Cuttlebug which I use a lot. Love this card.

Rachel Duong said...

Your card is so beautiful and the sentiment too! Her hair is so pretty and your coloring is awesome. I love the Turkish lace!
I have a cricut explore air but like you I mostly use my cuttlebug.

Larisa said...

What a sweet image! And I adore all the amazing texture you've used!
. I never thought about change that way. I have not a cut machine.
