September birthday and Big Shot woes
Hi friends! Happy Friday to you. I am starting with my card for this post. I know you will all totally understand my Big Shot woes in the next photo. I have lots of friends with Sept. birthdays (me included) so I decided to make a few CAS cards. I was totally inspired by Maile's card here.
The StampNation Dream Team was spoiled recently by IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko. They sent us a huge box of goodies to play with. I absolutely LOVE the Kaleidacolor ink pads. These are the most amazing ink pads ever. The great thing about these ink pads is you can use them separately or push them altogether. I used the Tomato Vine for my leaf and "September". Pretty cool right?! Have you tried any of these ink pads? I highly recommend them.
Now onto my Big shot woes....:(
If you follow me on Instagram you saw that I posted a picture similar to this there. This is the sad state of my Big Shot. About 2 weeks ago it started getting really hard to turn the handle. I had to use all my strength to get something cut. Not good. I decided to take it apart to see what was going on and to see if I could fix it. I have some parts on order that will hopefully keep it working for a bit longer. I have had it for about 5 years. If the parts don't work I will have to buy a new one.
How much do you use your Big Shot? I didn't realize just how much I use mine until I couldn't use it. This is one reason I made the card above, no need for my Big Shot.
Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!
