Good evening, all! Just wanted to pop in to share my entry for this week's colour challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks. I've been wanting to paper piece this Unity flower image for a while and since I need more birthday cards I paired it with this birthday sentiment. I also added some Stickles to the flowers for a touch of sparkle and some Glossy accents to the "Happy" for some shine.
Oh, and remember the shopping ban? So much for that... When a shopping ban ends for me, it ends with a bang! Being forced to order more white embossing powder seems to have opened the ordering floodgates. I am currently awaiting goodies from:
Simon Says Stamp
Market Street Stamps
I also tried to put an order in with Skipping Stones Designs but was having problems with checking out. My messages to them asking for assistance have gone unanswered which I'm unimpressed with. After experiencing such fantastic customer service from other companies (Unity, Woodware USA, Purple Onion Designs) maybe I now have high expectations. However, given the economic tough times we're going through, what company would ignore messages saying, "Please help me give you my money"?? Their loss and I'm sure there are plenty of other companies who would be happy to help me out.
