I am lucky enough to own one and in all honesty I don't use it enough.
Not long ago, my daughter passed on masses of craft items to me and this included a lot of Sizzix dies ; I am now well equipped in that department!!

You have until Tuesday 18th and I'll announce the winner on Weds 19th.
Here's the prize:
