    Oh my goodness, Dawn–LOVE this card! I would never have used the green & aqua together–I always learn from watching you! Not sure what I will be able to come up with–just want to copy what you did–but I’m going to try! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    I would like to make a request. That your design team stops showing examples with the inks that you have had out of stock for over 6 months now.

    I find that type of customer service so outrageously irresponsible. You push new product on us monthly yet you can’t even maintain a key element to your product catalog with having ink available.

    Seriously, how hard is it to possibly manage your ink vendor to not be able to provide you product. I have worked for top retailers in the USA and no way in HELL would you ever accept that they run out of milk for six months and expect to keep coming back.

    Get it together! Make some phone calls. Change vendors!
