  1. I meant to ask what the sizzix postcard die has with it? I have not seen it around but thought maybe I need it for my handmade postcards.

  2. Love the books -especially the postcard one. Added you to my RSS feed because I was saving too many e-mails from your blog. Took me a while to come up with that! hugs May
