My paper trimmer broke!

OMG, how horrible is that? Well, REALLY bad when I canNOT cut a straight line with a pair of scissors, lol. I had a card to finish up today and the trimmer broke this am so it didnt get finished, lol. I'm going to run into town tomorrow to get another one. Just hope I can find a good one. This one was the Making Memories one, I got it with a 40% off coupon at Michael's only about 4 months ago. The ruler part of it broke on one end. Wonder if they have a guarantee? Hmmmm...need to check that out.

Soooo, for today I though I would show my very first card. This is before I even had a camera to take a picture, so its a scan of it and it was for my DH on valentine's day. I have no clue where all the stuff is from, probably Michaels or Hobby Lobby one. And actually, I still like this card...simple, plain, and to the point, lol.

Thanks for stopping by and so sorry for not having a NEW card to show you. But will for sure on Thursday! That's my first day as Melanie's Guest Designer. Already have that card made! LOL!

This is such a sweet card! Very well done for your first one.
That completely stinks that your trimmer broke. I would be lost without mine. I had to by the industrial one from Staples. Best of luck finding a new one on sale!!

Lovely card. Sorry about your paper trimmer. I am sure if you take it back to where you got it and if you have a receipt or paid with a cc, they will give you at least a replacement.

Wow, that is an impressive first card.

I am bummed about your paper trimmer. I have been thinking about trying that one out. Good luck getting it exchanged or replaced.

Oh heck!! sorry 'bout your trimmer--I can't cut a straight line either, even when traced first, so I feel your pain! This card, however, is a pure delight! I have that little polkadotted heart, but never have made it look this cute! Great card and very resourceful of you to not have to trim much! :) tfs!
