My New Toy.........................

I promised a couple of weeks ago that I was going to share my new toy, but the fall down the stairs and a stinking cold and a few other problems along the way I way unable to sort out the photos.
Well I have had to give into feeling poorly and am off work, cos I can't talk!!! SO I thought I would take advantage of no children and the peace and quiet to take some photos and share my new baby with everyone!!!!! It is something I have been drooling over since I first saw Sizzix and Ellison over 6-7 years ago.
I always wanted the Prestige Pro, but unfortunately they didn't sell them domestically, so image my surprise and excitement when the Bigshot Pro came out. I looked into buying one last year, but really could justify the amount of money.
Well recently I had a good clear out, sold some gold and was very surprised by how much I got, so I treated myself to this beauty and a few dies!!!!!!!
Doesn't it look gorgeous, I spent the first couple of days stroking it, cos I had a lot of work to do, but did manage to squeeze in a bit of card and made up one of the dies!!!!
I have wanted the Bigz Match box die from SU, but this one is better, its cheaper and bigger and I love it. I cut the match box out of Early Expresso cardstock, and then worked out the mats, which i cut out of Crumb Cake, stamped and inked.
I used the Vintage Vogue Stamp Set from SU, and added a little bit of hardware and some ribbon.
It makes the best little box, which actually is a lovely size about 9cm by 13.5cm by 3cm, ideal for any little gift.
I love it!!!!! I have created so many bits and pieces which I will share with you another time.
I hope you like
Right I'm off to have a lie down.
Take care, have a good day.
