I'm starting to get a feel for this steampunk thing now, at least I think I am, thought I'd use the same image as yesterday but go a bit darker and grungier, what do you think?
Image: Journey, designed by Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie, coloured with promarkers
I have used "tobacco" card from The Papeterie and Very Vanilla card from Stampin' Up
I stamped Hero Arts CG222 Music Background stamp with versamark and clear embossed onto the largest panel. I embossed the other 2 panels with Clockworks and Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folders, then used the versamark inkpad over the whole panels and clear embossed.
The greeting is Tim Holtz - Odds & Ends stamp set

Passion for Promarkers - for a teenager
Have been gallivanting again! off yesterday for a quick cuppy at Kath's to pick up some things for the crafty workshop day on the 28th May - sneaky peeks to follow :) or you can see some over on Kath's blog.
Then this morning I was over to see the lovely Charlotte and Rachel at The Papeterie for a yap and to stock up on foam tape and bling.
Oh and I just have to have a moan.... I ordered some bits and pieces from this company, free delivery if you ordered over a certain amount, which I did. They processed and despatched the order in a timely manner on the 3rd May and I got an email telling me it would be delivered on or before the 9th May. They advised it was being sent via HDNL (big groan) and gave me the tracking number. So I duly tracked the parcel, it arrived at the Aberdeen Depot at 8.39am on the 4th - so I thought great, I would either get it later that day or on Thursday the 5th - well that was certainly wishful thinking. So I phoned the helpline number and spoke to a very unhelpful female there who told me it wasn't due for delivery until the 9th so they would hold it at the depot until then, NO I could NOT go and collect it as they will only allow that to be arranged after they have attempted at least 1 delivery, NO she could NOT telephone the Aberdeen depot and ask them to deliver it on Friday the 6th as they had no telephone number for the regional depots (seriously??), but after quite a bit of persuasion she agreed to email them and request a delivery on Friday. But, no delivery on Friday - and of course a weekend delivery was totally out of the question.
On Monday morning I got a text from the supplier to tell me my parcel would be delivered between 12.58 and 15.58 - so I was quite confident yesterday that I would get my parcel haha
I phoned the helpline at 6pm and spoke to a lovely lassie called Abbie who told me that my parcel was indeed on the van and that they were running a little late, but it would most definitely be delivered today.
I then phoned the helpline at 9pm and spoke to Abbie again, she checked the system and just a minute before I called, the driver had logged onto the system and said that he had tried to deliver but no-one was there to receive the parcel.
Quite clearly, with 3 kids in bed and a man offshore I wasn't away out gallivanting just a minute previous to my call so it would appear the driver was lying.
So she apologised most profusely and emailed the manager at the local depot to request that the driver be spoken to as this was not acceptable and she promised that she would ensure my parcel would be delivered Tuesday (today)
An wonder of wonders... it arrived at 11.30 today - while I was out picking Faith up at nursery. And despite the fact that they absolutely must get a signature when they deliver the parcel from this supplier, they just left it in the shed lol
But at least I have it now :) and I fired off a stiff complaint about the courier to the supplier this morning.
Right, better get on - despite getting to the bottom of the linen bin yesterday, it's overflowing again. How does that happen? are there little laundry pixies running amok while I sleep?
