miss you

the last retreat I went to in Branson, which was earlier this month, we saw this cool little plate that can be used in the Big Shot that has a beveled middle so you can die cut without cutting that area, it made some really cute pop-ups for cards. I got home & didn't have a single butterfly die!  what?!  today I finally made it to the store but Hobby Lobby had NOTHING *gasp* Off to Joann's where I find they've had all their dies on sale, needless to say they were extremely picked over, I chose on from Fiskars and was assured by one of the ladies working there that it does work in the Big Shot.  I bought it home & was pretty much ready to take the thing back but finally had success with it, although I'm not thrilled with it.
