You may remember back in October, I won the challenge for the Hero Arts blog. It was for the end of the month. . .October2010B. I was so excited and quickly placed my order for the free stamps! I know from a previous win that it can take about a month to receive the prize, so when the end of November came, I watched for the package to arrive.
Thanksgiving came and went with no stamps. Then in December, life got busier than usual and I actually hadn't thought about it for a week or so. I received an email in the beginning of December from Hero Arts, telling me that the Magical Background stamp was out of stock and they asked me to choose something else. I was disappointed but replaced it with some paper, inks and gems.
Then I waited. . . .and waited. . . .and waited some more. I finally decided that something went wrong and sent an email to Hero Arts telling them I still had not received my prize. They got back to me that day, apologized and sent the order the next day. Well, the stamps finally came today!!! And the best part is that they now had the Magical Background in stock! Yippee! I've been trying to get my hands on that stamp since I saw it at Scrapfest!
Sorry the story got so long, but I'm very happy to finally have these fun stamps now! I also chose the Plaid Background, the Fabulous Flourish and the little cling called Let it Snow. Here is the only card I had time to make so far, but believe me, I'll be playing more very soon! :)
Well, it's really late and I need to get to bed. Can't wait to crawl under the covers and get warm! It's been so cold here! We woke up to -7 (that's BELOW ZERO) this morning! I keep telling myself, "Spring is coming, spring is coming, spring is coming." Maybe if I say it enough times, it'll happen! Yea, right!
Thanks so much for coming by! Your visits and comments mean so much to me! Night. . .
