Wishing You The Happiest Of Days

Hello dear friends and followers, and a warm welcome to my new followers. Hope you are all well and enjoying some Spring sunshine, which here in the UK we have longed for!
Today I have a card made with a cut down version of the SB Framed Labels Eighteen 3D M-Bossabilities, and using the letterpress technique. For this I used the Brilliance 'Aurora' multi coloured ink pad.
My sentiment is by Anna Griffin, stamped with black memento ink onto a SB Labels Eighteen. For my flower I used several silk flowers and a decorative brad, both from my stash. My leaves are cut from a Marianne die.
My new craft room is almost complete.  I have had the most horrendous customer service from the company who supplied my stationery cupboards. It's taken weeks for them to get my order right.  They sent damaged doors, wrong replacements, missing parts...a complete shambles!! On a brighter note, I ordered a storage system for my ProMarkers from CardCraft-UK, which was the best deal on the internet, and their customer service was second to none...free P&P too!! 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges...

Thank you for stopping by today
With My Love, Sasha xx

Hi Sasha

Valerie said...

Love this technique Sasha and the colours are so pretty. I've got that inkpad too, must have a go at using it like this:) Can't wait to see you ensconced in your new playroom, hope the bad service hasn't put you back too much. I think it's sad these days how we marvel at good service because it's so rare. We were taken aback with the level of help and advice we had from the company we bought our kitchen from. Enjoy the good weather it's supposed to be getting better and better!!

I love this one Sasha, That embossing folder is gorgeous, and so are your colors and embellishments.

I'm sorry about the problems with your cupboards, but I can't wait to see photos of your new craft room. I'm so glad it's almost finished.

How much fun it's going to be when you start putting all your things in there, and organizing it!

Please share photos of your craft room when its ready. It must have been quite frustrating when so much is going wrong with the delivery of your cupboards. I bought racks and boxes at IKEA for my craftroom :)Just picking them up myself and installed within a day! No problems and I am very happy with my storage space. And I bought a small cupboard for my papers:)

On to your card; usding the colors in a wonderful way. This is perfect. Love the design and of course; your signature of elegance is all over this card!XX
