Christmas Card, Happy Times and Buyers Beware!

So I'm gonna start with my rambling just to get it out of the way.  I bought 12 X 12 cricut mats the other day and opened the pack today.  I was using my spatula to get a cut off the mat and my spatula came up off the mat and sliced my finger (I'd show a picture but it just looks yucky).  Not a pleasant morning but managed to finally get the bleeding to stop to have only a bandage around my finger.

 I wanted to share my experience with everyone with something that happened to me this morning.  Do not order from Scrapbook Needs.   They are an online shopping site but they will never send you the items you ordered.  They do not respond to emails and the phone number they provide is now saying memory full and I can no longer leave a message.  After not receiving my items after trying to get a hold of them for awhile now, I thought I'd check some reviews just in case.  I wish I would have checked reviews first (you never really think to check), they have been reported on numerous occasions to the BBB and people have had to dispute the charges on their credit cards for not getting their items.  I called my bank this morning and credited back my money but I wanted to share with everyone not to order stuff from this company, they will be quick to take your money but you will never see the order.

On a happy note...I was sooooo happy to see my ups box which contained my YourStory Photo (YAY!!!!).  I'm so excited to try this out and as soon as I have it up and running with projects in tow, I will share with everyone.

On to what I've done today which has actually been nothing since the cut on my finger is right where I bend it.  I did make another Christmas card and I'm submitting to Paula's Wacky Wednesday Christmas Theme.  She has a great blog, check her out at More Than Favors.  I'm kinda in the middle on how this turned out, but the more I stare at it from across my desk...I kinda like and I hope you do too.  Enjoy!!

Materials Used:
Sentimentals Cricut cartridge
Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossed folder
Tattered Angels Jack Frost glimmer mist
Silver glitter glue
Stamp came from The Paper Company Snowflake set
Tree boarder was cut from my Sure Cuts A Lot

I will probably be back on later since I got a late start on crafting today.
