This is my second post today.  If you're looking for the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog post go here.

Hello all!  I have some new toys to show you today.  I went to the Great Lakes Mega Meet and focused on getting dies this year.  Here are three of them.  

The first is called Majestic Medallion from Our Daily Bread.  This is the background die.  The next is an oval that is the center of an ornate frame called Fancy Frame with Bow and is from Gina Marie Designs.  The text is also from Gina Marie but I couldn't find it on the web page the package has.  Her dies are very inexpensive.  When I went to the site I found other companies at really great prices also.  You can check them all out here.  The leaves I have had for a while and are from Darice.

I have no need for the card at this time but it's always good to have on hand.

Thanks for your visit!  Have a blessed day!

Always difficult ones to make Robin, but I think you have created a very stylish card with your new dies.
