I was so excited yesterday I recieved some happy mail so of course I needed to use part of it.
When I went to cut out this cute little tag I got from My Creative Time my Cuttlebug wouldn't work.
I could hear pieces rolling around inside her and the rollers would not engage.
EEEEK! As you know I LOVE to emboss my cards.
How could this be? I can't live without my Cuttlebug and a new one really isn't in the budget.
I've had her for years so I knew she wasn't under warranty any longer so I figured what the heck let's open her up and see if there is anything I can do to fix her.
The poor girl had lost one of her gears. Is that like us loosing our marbles. Just wondering...
|YAY!!!!! I fixed her!!!!|
I've had this card in the planning stages for ages now and finally finished it in the wee hours this morning after my Cuttlebaby was fixed.
When I took my card outside to take pictures of it guess what? I dropped it!
AND you guessed it. It landed face down right in the wet with morning dew grass.
Just like buttered bread....
I had to wait for it to dry so the waterstains wouldn't show up in the picture.
Luckily it dried out okay and the water stains are now gone. Whew. Thought I was going to need to redo it for a while there.
Thanks for looking.
