Spring Time

Good after noon every one and I hope that you are all having a lovely weekend so far. Its turned a bit chilly down here in London so i may have to get my coat back out!.  I have spent a wasted afternoon running around looking for Game shops that are still open. My son received quite a few gift cards for this shop and has been saving then up. We heard recently that they would be going into receivership so thought we best spend then quick. We were quite surprised when we found an open shop to be told that although Game was still trading and may be bought out by an American company they had been told not to honour any of their pre-sold gift cards!!! My son was quite upset I can tell you. I have told him that I will give him the money that was on the cards. After this experience I will never again give gift cards, its just too risky in today's climate. I feel so sorry for the staff of this shop having to pass out the news to disgruntled customers. Enough moaning and on to my card.


Now I haven't used a Hanglar for quite some time but this image had been stamped up and was in my tin of uncoloured images so I spent the evening going through the images and colouring some up.
I cant remember what she is called but i am sure that someone out there in blog land will be able to tell me.
I have coloured her up using copic markers 
E55,E53,E51,E50,E13,E11,E21,E00,YG25,YG23,YG21,BV02,BV01,BV00
The papers are Tilda and bought from Hobby Craft. The buttons, ribbons and lace are from CraftsuLove. For the paper lace I used a Magnolia Doohicky and the ovals are spellbinders nesties.

It's flippin' cold here, too!
Love this card....the papers are so very pretty, and I like the overall shape....all comes together so nicely.
My sister had the same problem with gift cards from Peacocks....had saved them from Christmas, and was told they couldn't be honoured. She wrote and emailed, and finally got her money back....might be worth a try,....frustratin' to say the least!

Hi Jayne, this is fabby, I love the image and you have coloured her perfectly and the papers are super.
Can't believe they would not honour the gift cards, and it doesn't do them any favours, I wouldn't want to give them any custom in the future. Have a great weekend.

Wowzers Jayne! Your coloring is always amazing. :-) Glad you had some play time, but so sorry to hear about your troubles with the gift cards for your son. Honestly that doesn't sound legal. :-(

Ohhhh, so adorable. The DP's are awesome too.

Shelby said...

So these companies just keep the monies given them for gift cards and then break their contract with the customer? Wow. You're a much better woman than me not to have lost your mind. Anyhoo...wonderful shading and highlighting with your coloring and I adore the unique shape you've used for the base. Gorgeous work as always Jayne.
