Anyone for Coffee?

Good morning and here we are mid-week already! Don't know where the time flies to.  Well I have broken my poor little Cuttlebug sob sob! I really love it and miss it dreadfully but I would keep cranking too many layers through I blame the extra shims I have in those intricate patterns.  It went ping and the side fell off.  My DH is going to look at it but I think it has gone to Cuttlebug heaven.  I have my Big Shot Pro but he is such a big fella that I use my Cuttlebug mostly just for all the smaller stuff and I think it is a lot easier for embossing. I can't get the hang of embossing with my SB on the Pro it doesn't look as good as with my little bug.  I think I will have to get another this week.

Here is the card I have made for today, another fab Mayzy Art image:

She's called Shawna with Latte and she looks like she needs that to warm her up lol! She's such a stylish girl I had to have her wearing some Louboutins don't know if you can quite catch the red soles!! I have coloured her with Copics and Prismas and then cut her out.  She has been placed on a SB oval embossed with dots and also a SB Floral oval.  The papers are Echo Park called Sweet Day.  The border die is MFT Dienamics and the coffee cup is a C.C. Designs die, I put the band through a crimper to make it look like the bands you get. The ticket is also by C.C. Designs and the corner die is a Whimsy.  Pearls are from my stash and they have been coloured with Copics.  I have followed the sketch over on Sketch Saturday for the layout.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Mayzy Art - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - New (Image, coffee cup die and papers)
Flourishes -New (Image, coffee cup die and papers)

Well I am off to the gym and then taking my Aunt out for lunch - she will be 91 next month! Catch you all later, thanks so much for looking! Take care xx

Lovely card Susan, such pretty die cuts and papers.
I know what you mean about the Cuttlebug, I love mine - they are just so handy. You should be able to pick one up quite reasonably now that there are so many different machines on the market.

Unknown said...

Oh, so sorry to hear about your cuttlebug Susan... but look on it from the bright side, now you can buy something new ;-) Your card is fab, such a pretty little lady! Big hugs, Ira xox

Amanda said...

What a seriously Gorgeous card!! I love how you colored "Shawna" in! I don't know much about shoes, but the Louboutins sound amazing! :) I do, however, know about pinging and a great machine falling apart, and I feel very sorry about your scrapping loss :( On the other hand, you have one amazing card from it!! :)

Thank you for playing along with us in Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!
