My new Grand Calibur

Hi everybody.  Well it's a cool and  overcast day here but at least it is dry.  As you know my Grand Calibur died on me (at 18 months old) but I decided that it was not really worth my while paying to have it shipped somewhere to have it fixed so I bought a new one on the Spellbinders blockbuster that was on Create and Craft recently and when I told my son that I had bought it he said he would go half on it for me for Mother's Day.  So maybe Students aren't so bad after all!!  Anyway I ordered it on a Saturday and it was delivered on Tuesday morning - very quick for once.  Needless to say I had to play around with it and  so I made these cards.

                                       
                                  

                                 
                                 
Thank you for taking the time to look in.

I'm so glad you got a new Grand Calibur Marie-Louise! You gave it a great workout on these beautiful cards. I love all the embossing and pretty edges on the first one, and the second one is especially lovely. I love that die for gate folds, and those poppies inside are so beautiful. I love how delicate they are!
