My new Doo Hickey

Evening all

I hope you are all well and enjoying the bit of sunshine we've been having. I got myself a new Doo Hickey this week. I wondered what on earth it was when I first saw the name. I swithered about buying it for ages because I wasn't quite sure what to do with it and then I bit the bullet and ordered it from the Glitter Pot. I could just go mad in that shop, but I have to say I was very disciplined. A Doo Hickey I was looking for and a Doo Hickey I ordered. It's a die cutting thingy by Magnolia and you can use it in your Cuttlebug (or Wizard or whatever), just in case you didn't already know. It end effect is like a punch isn't it, but I like it because it's much easier to use. I've got rheumatoid arthritis in my hands and I find punches quite hard to use sometimes so this little thingie was ideal. I just ran it through the Bug and Bob's your uncle as they say. Anyway, here's the result. The design is supposed to match some of Tilda's dresses so that's an added bonus.

I've given you a few views of the card so you can see what I've been up to.
