So, my papertrey ink order finally came in on Wednesday. I was very frustrated waiting 2 weeks for my order. I posted a comment about the long wait on a papertrey ink forum and was surprised at how 12 people commented on my post raving about what a great company it is and why it's okay to wait 2 weeks for their product. I agree, I love everything I got, but I still don't think that is a good excuse for poor logistics. I felt like all those papertrey ink people drank the kool aid. My opinion is this. There are some great stamping companies out there. I've loved everything I got from stampin up, flourishes, amuse and my local store. Papertrey ink isn't the only game in town. I respect that they are growing, but they need to get their act together or the casual shopper like me will go elsewhere. I am probably set with stuff from them for a couple months. Hopefully when I order again in the summer/fall I will be happy with both their products and their logistics!!!
So on to the card! I was playing last night with my new stuff and this one just came together. The image is actually from amuse. I colored it with oranges and reds and tried to get the faded look by having the seat faded lighter than the back cause that's what happens to a well worn chair in real life. I just got a glitter pen so I put a little bling on the flowers on the chair and lamp. The sentiment is from pti - chair-ished. The doggie is also from that set. The background is from my new Argyle set. The colors are dusty durango and chocolate chip. I think I'll have some fun with my new goodies. Now off to bed to get better!
