The eagle has landed

Morning everyone another miserable day in paradise here!  However I'm not in the slightest bothered as I have had a very special delivery and I'm over the moon.  The eagle has landed and how, here's a little out of focus hint:


Mmmm looks more like a grumpy parrot than an eagle I hear you say.  Well this eagerly awaited addition to my craft household arrived yesterday and I can tell you I was soooo excited.  Here's another hint:


Yes that's right its a Pro (no not that kind!!) and my lovely DH bought it for me, I had been saving for it for a while (well actually trying to win it with my winnings from scratch cards but I think it would have taken me another 10 years!):



I can tell you he's a big boy, look at him next to poor junior:


So today I will be having a good old play and acquainting myself with the latest addition to the household teehee!  If you pop over to Julia's blog you can have a look around some other worktops all over the world its great fun and you meet a great bunch of crafters!  Take care xx

Oh! Wow! This looks like a giant next to your Cuttle Bug! Bet you need to extend your Craft Room to accommodate it lol.
Happy Crafting!

It's the width that's important, and that is definitely wide. I'm really rather jealous! Thank you for stopping by and I'm glad you like my cat painting!

Enjoy your big new toy! That poor little Cuttlebug looks positively intimidated beside it! I could never understand why Provocraft didn't make the Cuttlebug twice the size when they brought out their recent updated version of it - esp. as Spellbinders was bringing out the Grand Calibur. I'm stuck with my CB for the moment, and it does most of what I want. Happy belated WOYWW. Shoshi #97

Kezzy said...

Oh wow that is huge, I have the bigshot and grand calibur. Hope you have a fab play. Loving your cards (phantom, indian type card and the pink card) they are all gorgeous. Hope dentist went ok, I am the same, I go to a dentist whose specialality is nervous patients!!! Lol. Kezzy x

That does look enormous, but I am sure you will have great fun with it. My machine of choice is the Silhouette and I am dropping lots of hints that the new Silhouette Cameo would be the best pressie ever.
