It is here!! Card too!

I received my new Vagabond electric cutting machine.  There aren't enough words to tell you how much I love it.  It is fast, heavy duty and just awesome. 

I used it to cut out the following pieces on Jon' birthday card yesterday.  It did it with no effort whatsoever.  I  had to turn the Lotus die 4 times and run it through twice as I turn it when I used my Cuttlebug (my Cuttlebug was not in good shape), so running it through the VB one time was wonderful.

If any of you want to special order the machine, please e-mail me.  You can watch Tim Holtz's video here and you can read
my earlier post here

Jon's birthday is tomorrow and we had a family celebration last night.  A grand time was had by everyone.

I felt his card needed to be simple (nothing fussy) so I used Graphic 45 paper and some beautiful gold foil that I had in my stash.  He loved it!

How exciting! The VB is on my Christmas wish list, my cuttlebug has seen it's better days as well, but it has been had to part with it, if you know what I mean ;) Enjoy and play, play, play!

WOW !! What a cool Christmas Present for you. I wish I could justify one, but I have a 'Big Shot', 'Wizard', and 'Cuttlebug'.
They are all good. I am sooooo
jealous. It's also pretty cool that YOU get a present for Jon's birthday. Happy day to you all.
