The last cuttlebug card. *snif* *snif*

My Cuttlebug has died.  Yes it is a very dark day in my craft room.  I was using my best little friend tonight and I guess I tried to put to much through.  Everything was going just fine,  turning the handle and all was flowing smoothly.  All of a sudden I hit a tough spot and put a little pressure into the handle and KKKKAAAABOOM!  The side of my cuttlebug popped, blew right off.  Flew across the room.  OMG!  NOOOOOO.  I grabbed it and snapped it back on.  Everything look fine.  whew.. I was scared.  So back to cutting.. no it's not working.. the moment I put anything through it pops open.  There is no saving it.  I am soooo  sad.  I must lay it to rest.  RIP my little green cuttlebug.  Now the big delima is a new cuttlebug or do I move on to and replace completely with a BigShot.  I don't know.  The hurt is too fresh .. I must sleep on it. 

Here is the last card from my best little green friend.

Hi Mary

I always thought cuttlebugs were immortal, so little to go wrong, a very sad day indeed.

But you still managed a great card, thank for for joining in my Spring theme at Rosie D's.
