How to Customize a Silhouette Shape Using the Knife and Weld Tools
I couldn’t resist when I saw this week’s Shape Challenge over on the Silhouette blog. Yes, the banners are tempting to work with but those birds are what really caught my eye and I had just the idea for what to do with them. I love birds and this flock immediately made me think of my family. Okay, so I don’t really have ten

Don’t I have the cutest “flock” around?!? I think I will consider this a Mother’s Day present to myself
