  9. Rachelle What a cool card! I have been a member of LS for a while and am now a follower here. My favorite craft tool would be...a toss up between my exacto knife and my plotter. I used my exacto for so many years...but have replaced most of that hand cutting with the plotter now. But I did miss my exacto when it was lost in a box for 2 very long years after one of my moves...I do love it! :) And so happy it is with me again!
