My New Toy

I'm such a lucky girlie, my lovely husband bought me a new toy, a Grande Calibur! 




Thought you might like to see the first card I made using it. A card ordered by a work colleague.Aren't easel cards just a pain to photograph, the photo really doesn't do the card justice, I have to say I was more than a little pleased with my first large die cut card. The stamped images are by Papermania and were coloured using Copics. 





I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

CRAFT155, Easel,
Delightful Challenge, Add ribbon,
Dutch Dare 165, Shaped card,
Sassy Studio 125, 3 of something,
PSC32, Banners.

Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

You will love your GC Julie. I've got a Big Shot pro which is too heavy for me, a BS Express that on it's last legs and resisted the GC for ages, now wonder why, its great.

Super card by the way.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.
