My New Flower Dies

 Over on the Cuddly Buddly Forum today we were discussing the new Marianne flower dies that are available to buy from the shop. I bought 2 of the die sets so said i would make a card to let the girls on the forum see what they were like and here we go.

I have also used one of my Nellies Choice Multiframe which I just love and they are fabulous value for money too. With pennies being tight value for money and quality is something I'm always on the look out for. When I saw the flower dies I thought I NEED them lol and glad I did.... I love them I think you will agrree that when made up the flowers look scrummy. Nellies Choice also do a fabulous range of punches that cut then you emboss the flowers and can be found HERE I will list the products at the end of this post for you. Here ia a close up of the flowers for you.
