{ cuttlebug.... is there anything else? }

I don't think so! I recently went through my scrap drawers and my "card starters" drawer and put just about everything through the cuttlebug!

This card came from leftovers from a batch of 50 cards I made for the Stampin' Up! Regionals in '06. The card stock & ink are ruby red and cameo coral. The ribbon is SU cranberry stitched ribbon. I used the cuttlebug thanks embossing folder and the charms die to get that cute little tag.

I love how the cuttlebug adds dimension and texture to the card stock. I've always loved the look of dry embossing, but couldn't be bothered to fiddle around with a stylus. To me, it felt like running your fingers across a chalk board, plus it is so time consuming and makes my wrist ache.... so the cuttlebug is like a dream come true.

Last week I had ordered a whole selection of cuttlebug embossing folders and dies from an online store... and from looking at their website you'd be under the distinct impression that they had everything in stock that I ordered... they processed my payment and THEN told me that nothing was in stock and they didn't know when it would be. How disappointing! Now to wait for a refund. :-|

Thankfully I found a trusted vendor that I could order them from and her prices are lower, and she doesn't even ask for payment info until the order is ready to be shipped. Plus she's giving me free shipping. What could be better than that? If you need anything from Provocraft or Ellison let me know and I can put you in touch with this vendor.

Do you want to know what I ordered? :-)
