Candy, Bride & Ebay

Good Morning to all - and a special good morning to my new follower !!
 As promised, one more piece of candy has been placed into my Blog Candy.....and I WILL take a photo and post it soon.
If you don't know what on earth I am talking about take a look at my 'sticky note' at the top of my blog ;0)
Well - I have a Sizzix Big Shot Express which is exactly the same as a Big Shot but electric, and as all crafters know we need a bigger cutter for the new larger dies - so back in September I treated myself after much deliberation - I even had a telephone debate with my good friend and Queen Ladybug Kerry - a Spellbinders Grand Calibur but I was disappointed as the crank handle was a nightmare after having the electric Big Shot - so when I noticed the new Craftwell Ebosser - I knew my name was on one.....
So I put lots of things inc my Grand Calibur onto eBay and sold everything inc the GC - for only £5 less than I bought it for - I was a very happy bunny !!
So guess what a courier delivered to me on Friday ?? Yes my gorgeous new diecutter - it takes A4 sheets so no cutting down, can run large dies through, large embossing folders, more than one smaller diecut at a time AND it cuts through EVERYTHING like absolute dream.......
Now onto my card - John and I were invited to a wedding on Saturday and it was surely a wedding dreams are made of.
It was set in a Manor and the grounds were just stunning. The bride, Lucy, was gorgeous - very simple dress but so beautiful and Stephen never stopped grinning all day.
I just had to use Bride Nikki from LCI - perfect for the occasion.
The embossing folder came free with my brand spanking new Ebosser !!!

A combination.....
Thank you for stopping by and remember if you aren't already a follower - please do read my sticky note at the top of my blog.
