Cold and Frosty!

Hello, Hope your enjoying your weekend! We had some snow here yesterday but only a thin covering on the ground which melted away after a hours or two as it turned to rain.

I have been having such a great time with my new Silhouette Portrait! I had the Cricut Expression but i hardly used it. I felt Cricut has really limited what we can do with the machines so i packed it all up and sold it. 
I cannot believe what these machine can do! I reserched it before i bought it but even so, i am still finding new things to do on it. I upgraded to the Designer Edition of the software and have already made a few simple cutting files. I cant believe the difference between this and the Cricut...the Silhouette machines put Cricut to shame. Well in my opinion. I know everyone has their own favourites. 

Anyway here is am with my card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge that started this morning. 
The theme this month is...
Cold and Frosty!
