Happy Sizzix day

Oh it is a lovely post day today, I tried a new supplier of sizzix dies.
I looked on ebay because I wanted the sizzix snowflake die that  Laura used in her Mollie Makes Christmas special for placemats and also for the kids to make card decorations for the tree. The Die wasn't for sale on Sizzix UK anymore.

I emailed what fun is this and she could send me 5 dies for a 18$ postage :O) and look what arrived today.
Please go and check out her ebay shop  What fun is this

 She packaged it up and it looked so lovely, included a free embossing folder as a gift, I love a good freebie and it always encourages me to buy again, especially with wrapping too...

So for 62$, 39£ or 48E I got :-
656524 Pinwheel die (for the kids to make cute pinwheels to play with)
657055 Snowflake as seen on Laura's Mollie Makes (great size for applique and the kids will cut them out for the tree)
656355 Turtle, have you seen how cute that one is, think it may make an appearance somewhere, it's smaller than the owl one 
656204 Cupcake, ohh this is going to come in useful with Amelia 
and finally, 
the one that's getting an outing this afternoon 657057 Tag, I'm making card tags for the pressies :O) Gift tags are really expensive over here and tbh quite rubbish so I'm making my own and for 7E the die cost, I can buy like 20 tags maximum, whereas I can make tags for the next 10 years probably lol...

I so love my sizzix, definitely the best investment for quilting and household I've made in the last few years.

They've got a quilting blog hop this week, go check out Sizzix because there are some giveaways and some fantastic bloggers
