Snowflake Wonder!

Express the joy of winter with these fantastic snowflake dies!
 Mix and match a variety of pieces and put them together with a brad through their centre holes.
We have just got these in at Pink Gem Designs....see them here
Our stocks are limited and I think they may be difficult for us to get hold of as Christmas looms
 so if you like the look of these little beauties....don't delay!

I can't wait to have a play with mine but we have two of our lovely grandchildren Andy & Chloe staying with us at the moment
Soooo I am going to be MIA for a few days
So by for now......I will be back with a new card to post sometime next week!
