Cottage Cutz Dies - by MLSB

I was supposed to be out window shopping at our LSS this morning, 
( & presumably I WOULD NOT have brought back the new Authentique or even EP's Victoria Garden, teehee ) and was all prepared to have a long , leisurely lunch with a friend. Alas ,it was all not to be as I had injured my left ankle 
from a fall at home the previous day ! 
Instead , I was home when the postman brought happy mail ! 
My DT pack of Cottage Cutz arrived in the early afternoon and 
along with it were the new My Little Shoebox metal die designs to  coordinate with their latest collections ! 

I tried cutting out from the following designs - 
I haven't had soo much die cutting  fun in an afternoon , I tell yer ! 
Tools are such a game changer in crafting for me ! 
Here's a card sample , using Melissa Frances' papers, 
to show the versatility of the die/ designs . 

I had pre-made this card in anticipation of receiving the dies, 
with crinkled seam binding all attached too.
I was pretty sure I could easy add a dressform in coordinating paper , 
the sentiment uses MLSB tiny alphas. ;)

Gorgeous Pearl - so feminine! Thanks for the AC heads up (you actually put AD by mistake so I was beffuddled!) - I don't think I'll do that one - a bit out of my league at this stage & I am trying to pace myself with all the DTs - I do love them & aspire to that one day but right now at the end of a month their timing couldn't possibly be worse!
