I am so excited!

Good morning! Before I get to my card for the new Inky Impressions challenge I just have to tell you that I am so excited. My hubby and my MIL got me a BigKick and two spellbinders (foliage and ovals). Since losing all of my craft supplies a couple years ago I was without a cutting machine (I use to have a Cricut), so I am over the moon about this! I have not had a go at playing with it yet, as it was late when everyone left last night, but I am definitely playing with it today after my Student Government meeting. I can't wait! If you have a favorite die I would love to hear what it is so I can check it out. I am sure my wish list is going to be long! lol

OK so enough about that and on to my Inky card. Ironically enough the challenge this week is dies or punches. I had to use punches this time. lol

 I used punches for some of the flowers and twigs. I also used a corner rounder punch for the tag.

I used adorable Sassy Lili. I just love her and those little sandals are just so cute! I hope you like it.

I am entering these fabulous challenges. Come play with me!

Loved this as soon as I saw it Tonya - the colours are gorgeous. Woohoo great news about the new machine. For big shapes I love my spellbinders but ive also got a real thing about memory box dies - there's some gorgeous delicate shapes - they're my new crafty obsession! X
