Now are you ready for something fun?  This new die set is called Polished and it's unlike anything you've ever seen:)  Do you have a friend who is obsessed with her nails?  Or in my case, do you have a friend who's recently engaged?  I created this fun engagement card with the sentiment from the Qwick Qwips;)


This die set comes with the dies for the hand, fingernails, and the ring!  I opted to use a rhinestone to bling up the ring, but there is a faceted diamond die with the set.  To get the full sparkly effect, here's one more shot at an angle:)


Now it's time for you to hop on over to the next stop on the hop, the fantastic Jocelyn Olson!   

Mahalo,
jj
