What a Lovely RAK!



Do you recognize these die cuts?
If you are a Tim Holtz fan, then I know you do!
I have been wanting these fabby die cuts
since they burst out on the scene, but have been 
struggling to find them locally.

Suzanne, who is one of our design team members
over in The Cafe 'heard me fussing' one day and asked
if I would like to have her cut a few of them for me and
she would send them my way.  What a kind thing to offer
and of course I said YES!

Here's what arrived....


and this.....


and this....


oh, and this...


and accompanying it all, her lovely handiwork...


Suzanne lives just down the road from me
(well, maybe 75 miles or so)
and I was so surprised when the package arrived.
I can't wait to play with my goodies and of course
Suzz's card will now take it's place on my shelf of
'famous creative people I know'   : )
(yes, I do have several of those shelves)

Thank you for such a lovely kindness, Suzanne.
It really made my day!

Check out Suzz's Stamping Spot and see her
creativity in action...you will LOVE it!

What a lovely friend to send you such wonderful things. The dies are really difficult to get over here in the UK. They are filtering through slowly but being snapped up so quickly. Still they will be worth the wait I'm sure.
Can't wait to see what you do with yours.
