Pollycraft Challenge...

My 1st card after my hols!!!
I was sooo excited the day before I went on my holiday,as over on Pollycraft they are looking for 2 new DT members & I just LUVVVVVVVVV Paula's stamps,so thought I would give it a bash.That's when my problems began :o( I tried to unzip the papers that were needed & I couldn't get that to work,so Paula kindly sent me them to just print off,(I was packing my case at this point)& thought excellent,I had just put my new ink cartridges in (from ebay) & waited for my blue/green & brown papers to come out.To my absolute horror,the papers came out pink/peach/yellow & orange,I was sooo upset,I even started to cry out of frustration & just gave up.It taught me never to buy ink from ebay!
So today I have followed the sketch but had to use my own papers from my stash & just enter the challenge.I am really gutted,but not to worry.
I have seen on Paula's blog there are to be some new stamps released soon,woohoo!!!! :o)xxx

Hi Diane, another gorgeous card. Glad you had a fab time in Jamaica. Sorry to hear about your ink problems, I had a similar story with ink I bought from eBay, but mine printed the colours ok but it only lasted 5 mins (well a couple of days - but not long). Hope you'll soon be back in the swing of things. Hugs, Denise x
