Good News! Good News!

Hi all my crafty peeps - so good to be back.  Feeling so much better.  Thank you all for your wonderful comments and get well wishes.

Now, I hope your not too disappointed with my news - but for me its fabulous!

So, last Saturday, 5th Jan, was my birthday and as some of you regulars know, Andy is off to Winnipeg.  In fact he goes tomorrow:-(

My wonderful husband, that he is, let me order -  are you ready for this.................

Isn't it just perfect.  It came a couple of days ago and I finally was able to take it out of the box!  And look how wonderful it looks on my desk :-)

I had a quick play in the Studio program and did the control panel, with one of the freebie files that it came with.

Oh my goodness - this machine is fabulous - it cuts so quickly and cleanly!  I have to let you know, that I also used my Cricut mat in the machine and it works fabulous (I have quite a stock - so its good that I will be able to use them).

The Studio program seems to be quite intuitive, although I have only done basic things at the moment.

I have also made a card - but I will show you that tomorrow - I'm putting it in Andy's suitcase - so he will see it when he gets to Winnipeg:-)

So that's my news.  Lots of packing to get done today - he has to fit a lot in two suitcases, also doing some last minute laundry for him LOL!

I hope you are all well and have a fabulous week - gosh this month is already going by so quickly.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
