After much deliberation I bit the bullet and ordered a Vagabond, Susan the owner of http://www.countryviewcrafts.co.uk/ (the only place i buy my die cutting stash!) has had one for a little while, and I had always said that if my express died I think I would get one too, but once the express had died I felt sad and a little let down. Sizzix told me that is was 2 years old so in thier opinion had lasted well and that was that!! So I was a little wary, but Susan loves hers and takes it to crops and things so I decided late Thursday to go for it!!
It was ordered Friday, and arrived Monday (thank you Susan), but my car breaking down on Monday kinda took the shine out of its arrival!! http://www.countryviewcrafts.co.uk/ have mega fast and free delivery, what more could you ask for?? I hate waiting for stuff, there is one online shop out there that take over a week for delivery, I am sorry but a girl should not have to wait that long!!!
It was tuesday before Mr Vagabond had been shown his new home and introduced to his big brother Mr Big Shot Pro
So late last night i have a little play, I really like it, it is miles apart from the big shot express and sooo quiet!!
The only thing that frustrates me is that it will not take the MP platform, which is a shame as its such a great little thing! :: ETA: the mp platform does work.... I was being too gentle, if you slot it into the runners rather then trying to drop it onto the platform it does fit!!
I got up early this morning to tackle my scraps drawers, they are over flowing so I am cutting out some mats with my fave nesties (again the whole range of nesties plus free postage at http://www.countryviewcrafts.co.uk/ )
I will use the mats for some quick cards to fill up my cards box as it is looking a bit empty!
And the tiny scraps that i may have been tempted to keep in the past are winging their way to the bin!! I am going to be a tidy, non-hoarding Craft Fairy!!
