What A Star!

 Good afternoon. Today's share is a request I had for a card for someone that has just passed their nursing exams. I knew I had this perfect digi image for the job - Nurse Nora by CC Designs - available here

This used:
DP's - scrap box 
Image Nurse Nora coloured with PM's
Star punch 
Wooden star embellishment - coloured with PM and blinged up with Stamp and Bond and Glamour Dust
Star gems

Challenges I would like to enter:

Bow and Berries - Clean & Simple
Daisy Doodles - Anything with a Digi
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Stamp with Fun - Sketch 
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi
All That Scraps - Anything Goes

I am feeling sad and slightly mad with Create and Craft today as my much loved Grand Calibur that my DH bought me in June has broken :-(

The handle completely snapped off today:

I immediately phoned C&C Customer Services and the outcome is they want me to package it up - including the set of Grand Nesties that it came with - so they can collect it from me on Monday and then send it to their Quality Control to assess if it can be repaired or needs replacing. They confirmed it would be approx. 14 - 21 days before a replacement - if non repairable - would be sent out to me :-(

Lucky I've still got my Bigshot :-)

Thanks for popping by.
Have a fabulous day.

I read on someone else's blog that this had happened to theirs and they were sent a replacement handle directly from Spellbinders, perhaps it would be worth contacting them direct.

Gorgeous card Debs, I love the image, great colour combo and you've snook in another wooden shape - so jealous as haven't managed to use any of my stash yet .... bring me back part time hours LOL! OMG can't believe what has happened to your Grand Calibur - that seems such an excessive amount of time to have to wait for an outcome, I wouldn't be very happy either! Big hugs, Claire x

Hi Debs your card is beautiful, those papers, the design and image look terrific. OMG I can't believe that your Grand Caliber broke, goodness I hope mine doesn't do that I bought it at about the same time, I haven't heard of this happening before, I hope you don't have to wait to long for it to be replaced
