A cute little robot Valentine...

This little robot Valentine image came from the Silhouette Store. It was just so cute that I couldn't resist getting it.

It's a print and cut file (so easy!). I cut it out twice so that I could cut up one of the images to add extra layers to parts of my robot. Her face, balloon, dress and shoes are all double layers that have been popped up on foam tape.

From this angled shot, you can see my layers. The whole image was attached to the card with foam tape and then my extra layers were added, also with foam tape, giving lots of dimension.

Do you see how beautifully the Cameo cut out that skinny balloon string? I was amazed at the accuracy of the cuts and how cleanly they were made. I had no problem taking it off the mat - no tearing, no problems of any kind!

FYI - it says "Be My Valentine" on her balloon. I know it's hard to read in the photos, but it is clearer IRL.

On the inside (which I haven't finished yet), it will say, "I'm nuts {and bolts} about you!"

Here's a close-up of my image. I added Glossy Accents to the balloon, her eyes and her shoes. I also added some Wink of Stella to the little bow on her antenna and the collar of her dress.

The pattern across the bottom is a piece of washi tape from a roll that I bought at a museum store a year ago. Who knew you could purchase washi tape at a museum!!

Last night it was so cold that one of our water pipes froze enough to block the water from getting through. We're thankful it didn't crack the pipe. Our house is old (built in 1927), so the plumbing is not all that great. I think we have mitigated our problem, though, with some extra (temporary) insulation. We'll deal with a more permanent solution next summer.

I hope you are comfortably warm wherever you are. Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.

Heee you're having fun with your Cameo! This little bot is such a cutie! Cold and a touch of snow here, though it's starting to rain so hopefully that's the end of that!
