At Last....

... I managed to get a bit of crafty time in over the weekend and used one of my new Tildas..who arrived on Saturday in the post from CraftsuLove..I'm not happy with them at the moment as I pre-ordered another 3 of the new Tildas back in March and they told me on sat that I didn't place my order early enough for me to receive them in the first batch they got on Friday..I asked how earlier could I have been when I placed my order at 5.30am on the day they posted them on their website..the person I spoke to didn't even apologise or offer a refund so I immediately asked for one and promptly bought them from The Glitter Pot who has them in stock..I'm afraid to say that Craftsulove have lost my business for good..mainly for poor customer service as this isn't the first time they have let me down!!!..anyway rant's my card...

I used BG lovely Kioshi DP..going to have to get more of lush..!! this is 'Elf Tilda' I is so sweet with her wings..I added lots of sparkle with the sparkly ribbon and stickles and I used a sweet little dragonfly charm and some lovely gems...and distressed inked the edges and flowers...oh and my new EK success border punch..this is going to be a definite favourite.. I am going to enter this for the following challenges....
Secret Crafter - Distressing
Stamp Something - Charmed
Just Magnolia - Any thing Goes...
Well I hope you all had a fab weekend..and just a little bit of news..I'm taking over the running of Stampin' for the Weekend Challenge with my fellow teamie Sandie..Kimmi who did a fantastic job of making it such a fab challenge blog..(so I've got big shoes to I hope we'll do it justice) sadly leaving to send more time with her family...we wish her well...but she will still be around giving us a hand while I find my feet!!...
I'll be back later with another card to share...

  3. why do crafting companies never learn?? Don't they know crafting people talk to eachother and if they hear of bad service it will spread.

    Good of you to demand a refund! =)

  4. Good luck with the new challenge blog. Sounds fun. It's good to have a rant. They will learn their lesson once word gets around for bad service!
    Your card is gorgeous and I love the new Tildas. You've coloured her perfectly.

  5. Hi Jan

    Customer service is it seems rare these days, probably why I stick with what I know.

    I do wish you luck with SFTW. It was one of the first challenges I took part in and have always enjoyed it. Kimmi will be missed, but I know you will do the challenge proud.

    Almost forgot, a lovely card with one of those new stamps.
