Grand Calibur and Tuesday Trigger!

Hey Ya'll!! Boy, I didnt mean to be so long without a post...time flies when its warm Spring time outside! LOL! Ive been stamping and making a few cards, mostly for a pub call or two, so cant show those just yet...if the past is any indication...ill be showing them soon on my blog, haha!

BUT, I have been wanting to share with ya'll a wonderful gift we on the DT for Gina K Designs received awhile back from the awesome Spellbinders Company(Did you know that Gina K Designs is a Preferred Company with Spellbinders too!?!!)...The Grand Calibur have you used this yet?


Ohhhh my! Let me tell ya...when I first saw it...I'm thinking I didnt need this because I dont do scrapbook pages at all....I was wrong!! I havent purchased any of the Grand Nestabilities YET, but this is what I love about this machine....you can do MANY cuts and embossing at the same time...wooohoo!!



And another thing....I usually use the Cuttlebug, but just look at the deep embossing you get using the GC! It is such a deep wonderful impression, you do NOT get that with the Cuttlebug! LOVe it!!



Needless to say, I am so thrilled to have received this wonderful machine. I cannot wait to get some of the Grand Calibur Nestabilites too for making some wonderful shaped cards! Thank you sooo much Spellbinders! YOU ROCK!

And here is the completed card:



A little Shabby Chic for ya which was inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger over on The Moxie Fab World:



That's all for today! Thanks so much for being patient with me and my bad blogging self, lol! I am determined to do better though...that's REALLY bad going 2 weeks, lol! I blame the wonderful spring weather we have been having! :D

Great perk!!!! I keep vacilating about this machine - I love my Big Shot but ... there is a distinct appeal to making lots of elements at the same time. I love your card - just gorgeous!!! ~chris
