Engagement

Well got off to a great start to the day got all my stuff ready for my stall at the pancake tea in aid of cancer research in the afternoon, so off I toddled and had a very succesful day they managed to raise a fantastic £863 for cancer which is great, then I toddled home to start amongst my orders again, I lost my rubber mat for embossing with my cuttlebug but my mum very kindly got a new one for me at elgin so I would give it a bash today with my marianne dies and thought it was very stiff so just gave it a tiny wee bit of oomph and oh my did my cuttlebug go out with a bang !!! and now the bloomin thing is completely broken and at my busiest time of the year so to say my stress levels are rocketing is an understatement so sos to my mum to borrow her one so will have a right look at my cuttlebug but its looking like it will be in the wheelie bin I am not impressed and the air is blue blue. Poor Robbie phoned me and he thought something was wrong with me as I was crying Im totally gutted and he said if thats all we'll get a new one there is worse things have happened he said chill- chill i was boiling... So thats my saga for today but boy do I feel better getting that off my chest so I hope I havent bored you, and as they say tomorrow is another day..so here's hoping its a better one for me. But getting back to my card made this engagement card for a friend of my sisters who wanted simple but nice so I hope this will be okay for her. Used my nesties for the hearts embossed with divine swirl and cut the border with my new nesties and embossed the layer with swiss dots, added pearls and gems from stash. Hope tomorrow will be better. Good night. Aud x

I know exactly where you're coming from Aud, I would be gutted if I lost my cuttlebug - although I do have the Grand CAlibur to fall back on, it's just not the same as my trusty bug
such a pretty card

Congrats on a successful day with your stall at the pancake tea, Aud.

Beautiful engagement card, very elegant in black and white.

But what a disaster with your bug. I'd be lost without mine! I use it every day. I have used a Big Shot at my friend's house but I always have to ask what bits to use to cut or emboss!

Hope you get a new bug soon.

Poor you Aud. You could have had my cuttlebug as have been away dancing this weekend.
Lovely card, like this style. Glad you had a good day at the sale, now don't you go and overdo things.
