New toy and cards going to Beate

So did anyone visit Flossie's blog a few weeks ago and she totally was an enabler LOL. She had posted a pictures of this and HSN was selling is earlier than in stores and was cheaper. Well I bought it hehe and it came in the mail yesterday. Its the new Crop-a-dile called the Big Bite. I have only played with it once so far, but it does some pretty impressive stuff.
The next two cards are going to Beate she has the blog Fresh and Fun (we all know who she is lol) Her husband is deployed right now and she wants to fill a box with blank Valentine's Day Cards so the guys and gals can send a Valentine home. My husband is at a training command right now, but in the past when he was deployed the men appreciated stuff like this, so I am more than willing to send a few cards to her.



Materials used: Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White & Pink cardstock by SU, Smitten Paisly Glitter paper by K & Company, Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon & Purely Pomegranate ribbon by SU, textile embossing folder, spellbinder oval scallop nestability, pink gromets, Images from My Punny Valentine & Sweet Love by Papertreyink, Chocolate Chip, Purely Pomegranate & Certainly Celery ink by SU

Yep! I blame Flossie for my purchase too. I'm thinking I'll get it today or by Monday at the latest. It's good to have someone to blame for making me spend money!! Your cards are gorgeous, and what a wonderful, worthwhile cause!

OMGoodness. You got the big bit. Do tell! Is it a must have. Should I make space for it's beastliness. Wish it was PINK, but if it's a gem of a tool, I'm in. Love the card designs. I have those sets and now you have inspired me to crank them out. TFS. Lisa - SBS 10

Wow! You have the Big Bite already. It looks great to me. I guess it takes a little while before we can get it here in the Netherlands.

Gorgeous cards!! Your cards - also the ones in previous posts - are very inspiring.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. :-)

Hi Latisha! I am soooo jealous of your big bite! I wanted to buy it of the HSN when I read it on her blog too - but I just got a Cricut so I'm saving my $$. I will have to keep watching to see all the great stuff you make with it!
Love your blog sistah - your cards are fabulous!
