New stuff

Yes I actually made a little extra card this week. (Shock)
No time normally but this one came together so quickly.
Just as well as I have been working hard at the day job ever since. Although I did manage a quick visit to Peacocks. The boys are finally growing (yay!) but that does mean they need new clothes. I go to Peacocks cos they do clothes for small skinny teenage boys and student discounts (10%) as well. I am still weaning Emrys off wearing shorts all winter. I figure now he is 13 he is old enough for long trousers!

Anyway here is the card
I used some new presents - my NEW cuttlebug machine which embosses like a dream and is so neat and my NEW wooden scroll courtesy of my Daring Cards Secret Santa - it is just yummy.
and some new not presents - NEW papers and card and ribbon as I finally received the December Self Addressed kit and a NEW cuttlebug square scallop die.
Since then I have also got a NEW ATG gun. It is like an enormous herma applicator. Ever since I discovered this way of applying glue I am hooked as it is so easy. Apparently using one of these is great value for money though the initial outlay for the gun is quite a lot. I bought mine from Directa. I'll have to take a photo of me and me new toy so you can really see the scale of it. At least twice the size of my hand!

No time to play until tomorrow though when I have to make time for my DCM Friday dare. It is a great one this week so I am really looking forward to playing!

Beautiful card, Lythan. The Cuttlebug's great isn't it - I don't have a clue what I did without mine!
