Talk about frustration. I should have left well enough alone. I decided to get a Big Shot even though my Cuttlebug was okay. It did need new plates and the handle was attached with duct tape but it's been good to me. The Big Shot on the other hand has been a pain. One of the plates is so warped it struggles to go through and then the cut marks (or any tape I use to hold the die) leave marks on my cardstock. It also leaves embossing about the edge of the die - not necessarily a bad thing but not what I'm going for.
Frustration number two is with my cutting devices. None of the three cut perfectly straight. Well I guess the Tonic one does but I got the smaller one without knowing any better and it doesn't go 5.5 inches wide so I have to mark it first. That means I am constantly trimming my cards to get them even. And don't even mention the T square ruler. That's warped too.
Okay. Enough rant for today. You came here for a card. Just so you know. This is my third attempt. Hence the rant.
Time Out challenge - Give Thanks With a Grateful Heart. I'm singing it now. ;) I'll also link up to AAA Cards for their thanksgiving/thanks challenge.
Now that my rant is over, I'll go make the bed and finish the laundry. Have a great day!
