Fab Find on a Cold day!

I received this fabulously loaded package today from a friend in sunny Texas.







Today, I found a hefty box on my front step...loaded with goodies galore! Amongst all the certainly celery rhinestones, rickrack, glitter, primas, Rich Regals buttons, ribbons, brads, beads and DP...was a RED Sizzix machine. You can only imagine my absolute suprize and delight! Thank you so much Tracyltripp!! Wow, what a way to cheer up a friend on a cold MI day. All of the items were packaged with stamped toppers in a buggie themed state of bliss! Complete with a set of clear lady bugs and die cut lady bugs! My DD is begging to go out and buy some dies so we can cut stuff out! haha. She is going to enjoy this as much as me. So if anyone knows of sizzix die deals, let me know please!

What a fabulous gift! You and your daughter will have so much fun with those goodies:) Be sure and check the Sizzix website every Tues. for their Tuesday Teasers. They have big savings on some of their merchandise for one day only. Also I find some really good deals on ebay but you just have to remember to see what they are charging for postage before bidding. Have fun!

What an amazing gift! What a totally sweet friend. You will absolutely love the Sizzix.

You can often find GREAT deals on ebay. Try to buy in lots if you can, and keep your eye out for the BAD deals because sometimes they are. Anyway, I've bought a lot of mine off ebay and they are great! (hardest part is waiting for them to get here!)

Congrats on all your goodies!
