I broke my cuttlebug today... So sad.... I think I pushed its limits trying to get a clean cut today and on another fancy doily die last week.. I tried one more shim.... The side of my cuttlebug exploded... A tab broke and I tried to put in back together, but it just won't stay... I have an old back up Big Kick machine, so that will have to do until I get another CB..
A quick Masculine Birthday card to add my stash... I sponged ink on each of my panels and then flicked water over them... I ended up cutting my color block piece in half, So I made two of them.. Quick and easy...
Thanks for looking

I did the same thing about a month ago and I still miss my CB!!! I bought a Big Kick and it's ok, but I think I'm gonna have to get a new CB!!! Anyway, Irene, I love the simplicity of your cards; they turned out so pretty!
What if you woke up today
and only had what you
thanked God for yesterday?

First...great cas cards. Next...You have my sympathy about your CB, Mine came apart about a month ago, but it went back together, and I'm babying it now. I had to smile when you mentioned you have two craft rooms.:) You are one serious stamper. Thanks for playing along today.

Irene, so sad about your bug. It's the only machine I have and I can't imagine being w/o it! And, 2 craft rooms? Oh my! On to your pretty cards.
I love the way you created your color blocks for these CAS cards. They look just perfect.
Two really great simple and clean cards with just the right touch of color.

I don't own a CB so I can't sympathize with you. But it sounds like I shouldn't get one since lots of others have had problems with them breaking down. Bummer! So far my Big Shot has been good to me. I love these cas cards, Irene! Your color combo is so warm and wonderful! Enjoy your Big Kick in you "other" craft room. My crafts are in the computer room, but since it's very small, I pull everything out and work on my kitchen counter when making a card~How's that for being creative?

My cuttlebug is such a big part of my creating life, I will grieve with you. I have two of them. One that looks like its on its last leg but still keeps cranking. I use it for my diecutting. My newer one I only use for embossing. Glad you have a back up but I certainly feel your pain.
Love these cards.
