Birthday treat

Good afternoon all.
Seeing as today is my special day (21 and a bit- the bit just gets bigger!) and my family was off to work I decided I should have a little treat so off I went to visit The Craft Barn. I had a brilliant time chatting to the lovely staff and the owner Sandy. (Such a lovely bunch of people, thanks for making my visit so special) Well, to say I was spoilt for choice is an understatement as loads of stuff was being unpacked from the trade show........ In the end, with some birthday blessings and a voucher or two I trundled home with these little goodies to play with!
The New Tim Holtz ATC die and those amazingly wonderful butterflies, peeking out in the back is this new sizzix  3D flower die. I can tell you now that if you like flowers that is a must have (And I have not even begun to play properly with it yet!) Then some truly gorgeous wood birds and flowers that are the perfect size for the ATC!
Then it was a tough call with regards to the stamps; sholud I be loyal to Tim and get one of his sets that I am drooling over...... As you can see, the answer to that was no (But only because I know I am getting one of his sets over the weekend.) I got this set from Katzelkraft that I have been looking at for ages now. I first used these stamps at a class over at The Barn and they are really really great.
I feel really blessed to be able to have got all of this and look forward to some SERIOUS play time!
See you all later........
