ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE - A LITTLE CHOCOLATE CAN'T HURT

Hello, hope you are having a great Thursday.  I worked the last two days, and I have to tell you, since I only work during tax season now, January thru April 15th, two days a week, it is hard to get up and go.  Then after two days of doing that, it is hard to get my head back into my stamp room.......
I am super excited though, because I bought myself a new Grand Calibur and 8 of the new Grand dies!  It was a bundled deal.  I am so loving it.  I have their original Wizard machine, but have never liked it.  It's like wrestling an alligator to use it.  Then I bought a Big Kick and then a Big Shot, but they just don't cut the thin dies and emboss like they should.  This machine holds an 81/2 by 11 piece of paper to accommodate the large dies, but you can also put a lot of the small dies on at one time!  I got to play with it some today, and I am in love with it!!




So today I cut two of the new Grand dies of the circle to use on my card.  I colored the puppy/heart image by Inky Antics with Copics and chalked the background.  The papers were a gift from a friend.  I thread the ribbon through and added a bow.  The sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael's!

Have a great rest of the day, thanks for stopping by.  Stay warm!  Until later..............

Darling card and new toys to boot...I guess if you are going back to work, you need some fun new toys to take away the sting!
