Silhouette Promo and GIVEAWAY

There's a simple one-entry giveaway at the end of this post.  You guys know I'm not a huge fan of giveaways, but I do love giving Silhouettes away because those machines rock.  There's also a promo at the end if you're looking to buy one.
_____________________________________

When you think of the Silhouette, you think of a cutting machine.  However, the Silhouette can draw too.  You just put the sketch pens in place of the blade and draw away.  


Silhouette sent me this pack of sketch pens to play with.


The sketch pens are fun for making cards, place cards, stationary, or printed art.  I made this card with mine.


It's fun to just doodle around with the machine.



I thought it would be fun to really test out the sketch pens, so I googled a sketch of Batman.  Then I imported it and traced it.  I fed a paper bag into the machine to see how it would do.  It wrote on it well and I thought it did a pretty mean Batman sketch.


And here are a few more things I've done with the sketch pens before.  I made these blog cards HERE.


 And little cards are pretty easy to whip out.


So, here's the promo for this month.  If you already have the machine you can buy the sketch pen pack for $12.99.


To get the promo you have to go HERE (not to their regular store) and you can use the code "ROAR."

Now it's time for the GIVEAWAY for a Silhouette PORTRAIT.  Just leave one comment on this post before March 28th.  If you leave two comments accidentally please go back and delete one.  If you want to coax your husband into entering as well, that's fine.  He might like the machine, too.  Just be sure you leave a way for me to contact you if you win.  I'll announce the winner on the 28th.

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED.

Thanks for stopping by.
