Happy Saturday everyone! It is Saturday isn't it? It feels like we have had a succession of weekends and my poor furry brain is a bit confused. It didn't help with Holby City being on BBC1 last night, which made Friday feel like Tuesday!!
Anyhoo, I've been playing with my new toy - the Grand Calibur - and I have to say, I love it to bits! I can finally emboss the edges of my dies (I could never get a rubber mat through my Cuttlebug) so I have been cutting and embossing like a mad woman over the past thirty six hours.
TOTALLY GORJUSS challenge this week have the theme of NEW and the challenge over at CRAFT is Not A Card and at WINTER WONDERLAND it is New Beginnings so what I made late yesterday fits these well .......
As you can see, I only have the Grand circle dies for the moment, lol!

Sorry about the shine on the photo - I forgot to take the picture before I laminated the page.
I did think about taking this to work to hang on my office wall but Toad says that I'm not too as he likes it too much never to see it again - so it is now hanging in our dining room, bless him.
And what wonderful news from the New Year's Honours List for British sportsmen and women - but the one I am most thrilled about is SIR Bradley Wiggins!
Let's hope 2013 is as good for British cycling as 2012 has been - and maybe even a second Tour de France win.....? The 100th Tour de France starts on 29th June with the island of Corsica hosting the Grand Depart. I'm off to mark it on the calendar and book some holiday!
