Gauge keys and more

Hi folks.
Yay, the sun has decided to make a brief appearance here which cheers me up no end! I'm sure many of you knew about the Where is your Vagabond promotion that Sizzix had a while ago; and I'm sure many of you entered as I did. Well my keys and stickers arrived a couple of days ago.... what I didn't tell you, however, was that shortly after the promotion started I got an email from the lovely Tammy Tuttrow telling me that she'd randomly chosen me among others to receive a prize! (Blow me down with a feather; thought that only happened to other people!)
Well my prize duly arrived the other day too and I had a chance yesterday to try them out.
 So, what did Tammy send me? Only the new washer and inside out dies; whoohoo; both of these were high on my want list so I feel very blessed. I have not had time to do more that cut the washer die out; isn't it cool?
 The inside out die is fab; fiddly but fab! I've worked out though that for me one of the best ways of gluing it down was to paint the card with some matt multi-medium and lay the letters down into it as it sticks well and when dry you don't really see the exposed bits.
It was the perfect way to finish off this tag that I'd done ages ago but not finished off. And as a bonus you get a spare sentiment for another project too.
Right, I'd better get back into the studio as I've a thousand things to do and it's almost time for work.
Catch you later.
