New Toy - Brother Scan n Cut 2

Hi, crafters!
Today I received my new Brother Scan n Cut 2.
Happy Dance!
If you have thought about getting one of these babies, do it!
It is so easy to use, and quick to do your bidding.

The first thing I did was stamp a bunch of images from different stamp sets. I was so excited to use my new toy, I forgot to color my images before cutting them out, but ended up being not a big deal at all.

I colored these images with different pens to see what I liked the best.

Bicylce with Crayola Markers
Frog with Stampin' Up markers
Dragon with Spectrum Noir Colorista
Giraffe with Sharpies
Dog with Spectrum Noir and Balloon with Stampin' Up markers

I am a complete newbie. I know nothing about coloring.
Keeping that in mind, I found my top 2 favorite pens to color with are the....
Second choice is Spectrum Noir Colorista markers
Number One choice is Stampin' Up markers.

I'm not saying one is better than the other in quality.
I'm just saying with being a complete newbie, I liked those two the best.

Here is my very first card using my new toy!
