Ooohh.....more parcels

This was going to be a definite no-craft day...hubby has gone off to climb Lochnagar again..I think he's on a get fit thing and he won't be a happy bunny right now ..set off this morning beautiful blue sky and hot...the sky is now black and it's chucking it down...I bet there are a few swear words going on right this minute. What am I doing today well the house needs a good old gods the spiders are beginning to take over....but when I came back from my doggie walk this morning there are parcels.....

From my Funky Hand mate...Tip Top (Ruth) some gorgeous little Sizzix people...I asked Ruth if she could help me out for a graduation card I need to do next week. Ruth has just puchased an eyelet tool thingy so we agreed to do a bit of a swoperoonie...I've got thousands of those little eyelet blighters and I am pleased they are going to a good home. Thanks mate!
From my Funky Hand mate... Enfys...wooooo....I am so excited....Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder...thanks so much....I have been trying to get one of those for ages but they are sold out as soon as they come in stock. I was feeling a bit left out - everybody else seems to have one . You are too generous gal....apparently she has brought all the girls in the team a little pressie home from the US - can't wait to see what everybody else got.
From QVC - my long awaited Thickers from American Crafts...this is a real saga..pull up a chair.
I ordered these 3 weeks ago from the special American Crafts programme they did and after waiting almost 2 weeks I e-mailed them to find out why it takes so long for a parcel to come to the North East of Scotland...back came the stock reply - your order is still within the 5-7 working days....I am quite aware of that you numptie...I can count...all I am saying is that I could have walked to Liverpool to pick it up and back again in the time you lot take to deliver. Lo and behold it arrived the following Monday and guess isn't what it says on the is 2 Thomas Kinkade address books. After a minor stroke and much bad wordies, I called them and fair doos, the guys was most apologetic and very pleasant but hey he tells me I now have to wait for them to send me a label to return the wrong stuff and once they receive that back, they will send out my thickers...What a rigmarole.....but today whoopeee they have arrived 23 days after I ordered them. No gold stars there QVC.
I love these Thickers 4 - Alphabet sets and 4 sets of Swirls, Brackets, Flourishes and Frames all with a metallic finish ....oooohh....can't wait to play with these beauties.


  1. Hi Kath do great Ac stuff and they are good on delivery too. I used to get everything from QVC but am afraid really disappointed of late. Enjoy your goodies can't wait to see what you create. Have a good weekend.

  2. Kath, you are more than welcome. Now get swiss dotting! x

  3. Ooh, Kath.. what scrumptiousness!! Sorry to hear about your QVC rigmarole. You didn't say bad wordies in FRONT of the Thomas Kinkade address books, did you? (shock, horror) lol ;o)

    My Swiss Dots wonderfulness arrives this week. Can't wait! :o)

    Have fun with your new stuff!
