New Card

Good Afternoon everyone!!

Well as you may have noticed I didn't have a card to show you for our challenge this week at Charisma Cardz :( I completely ran out of time and hate to rush things as I am never happy with the results so I am going to make out next challenge card this week so that I have plenty of time to get it made.

So anyways I do have a card for you today yay :) I have had a sizzix eclips machine for about 2 years now and I think I gave used it once as a test for a wedding card sample I was making and it has sat on my shelf feeling sorry for itself ever since so I was browsing on Pintrest recently (my addiction) and I seen some lovely cards and boxes made using the eclips machine and I was also looking at qvc and seen that they had some of the cartridges on sale for under £10 each what a bargain so I bought them last week and they arrived today :) I can't believe it has taken me this long to use my machine the cartridges are fab and I also purchaed ecal to go with the machine which means I can connect the eclips to my computer and print and cut whatever I like it's fab!!! and I feel so stupid for leaving it this long to use it :( 

Ok so here is my card and I have used a lovely sentiment from the eclips all occasion cartridge along with the fab arrow shape aswell :) I would love to know if any of you have an eclips machine and what you create with it :) I got these fab papers with the papemania goody bag and then I seen the lotv diecut poking out of a box and said to myself how fab would it be to put them together as if he is mailing a present to someone so I think it came out quite well :)
