The birthday surprise was a surprise for both of us….Far Guy had no idea what thoughtful gift he was going to come up with…he was starting to panic. I have to admit I might have enjoyed his panic just a tad. He was so busy last week my birthday was the last thing on his mind.
Our daughter Jen showed up with a new machine that she had purchased…Far Guy then offered to purchase it from her… for me!
It is a fancy smancy die cutter.
No more hand cranking a die machine…this one has a motor and grabs the sandwitched die and the paper comes out perfect.
For our Christmas Cards this year I wanted a fancy die cut piece of paper to surround a stamped image.
The machine does a marvelous job…this is a very intricate cutout…many tiny pieces of paper fall out all over! If they don’t fall out then they are poked out.
It is a wonderful Birthday surprise! Far Guy was off the hook…I was happy…and Jen can borrow it when ever she wants. It was a win win win situation.
