No embossing or die cutting for me

 My Big Shot has died a very squeaky death and I don't know how
I am ever going to manage without it.
The dilemma is do I just replace it or do I buy a bigger one.
And there goes all my Christmas craft money.
So while I decide I am back to colouring images
and making cards that require no embossing or die cutting.
Hence the very simple card I have for you today.

That really is the most beautiful paper that needs no embellishment.
The camera is telling fibs again because the green ribbon is not a bad match.

Am entering this in:
Challenges 4 everybody - Anything goes
Hobby Cutz challenges - Anything goes
Hiding in my Craft room - Anything but holiday
Make it Monday - Anything goes

  1. Oh, you poor thing! I tried to imagine "life" without my Big Shot and I had such a panic attack that I bought a second one (Jo Ann had them on sale for 49.95 and a free shipping coupon.) I have yet to open it, but it's a good feeling just knowing that it is there. I could live without my Cricut or Cameo or Epic but definitely not my Big Shot or my Big Shot Pro.

    If you decide to replace your Big Shot, try, they usually have them at a good price!

    Love your card! Sometimes paper is all you need! Very nicely done! Thanks for dropping this off by our house here at 613 Avenue Create!
