It's my birthday and I'll buy if I want to!

Hi all,
It's a wet and dull day today, but, as the title suggests, it's my birthday. The girls are at nursery and school, so I have a lovely day of housework ahead of me! I am hoping to get online to buy a die cutting machine with my birthday money, but I'm not quite sure which to get. I did have a big shot ages ago but managed to break it, so I need a heavy duty one really and I do love the grand nesties so I'll do some research. I am managing to craft without one, but there are so many fab dies around, that I think I do NEED one! I am at a rehearsal this evening, so hubby and I will be going out to celebrate both our birthdays in December when my parents are up and can babysit.
It is time for another challenge at Creative Craft. This week, we are sponsored by Crafty ribbons, Stampin Dragon and Paper makeup. We are going Clean and simple this fortnight. Now, I find this difficult as I do love lots of embellies and DP's. I have used a snowman digi by stampin Dragon. I printed directly onto the base card and then cut out some of the background to show the snowflake paper (by Digital Delights) behind. I did a bit of colouring, added some glitter and that's it.
I would like to enter this into:
Bows and Berries - Clean and Simple
A gem of a challenge - cold and frosty



Have a fabulous day and love the snowman on your card
