Just popping with a quick post this morning to share a card I whipped up yesterday evening. When I came home from work there was a small padded envelope on my desk and the label said it was from Simon Says Stamp. Now, I shop there a fair bit but I knew I wasn’t waiting for an order – how curious!! When I opened it there was a letter and a die set (Partial Cut Flowers) from their new release, Pure Sunshine and a lovely letter telling me to feel free to play with them and share anything I made on my blog!! I know my friend Michelle (the Card Grotto) received a gift too and probably MANY others around the world. I know it’s marketing and its a great way to promote their product BUT – they never promoted they were doing it, they just sent them out and now lots of crafters have had their day lifted and a smile put on their faces because of a gesture by a company that frankly, is successful enough without needing to do that!! I am so impressed! I loved shopping with SSS anyway (despite the sometimes long wait for delivery) but this has shown me what a great company they really are and whoever is behind this marketing stroke of genius needs a pay rise!!!
Anyway, I thought “the children don’t need to be fed RIGHT away – lets see what this little die set does”!!. And here is the (very quick) card I made. Thank you so much Simon Says Stamp peeps – you are AWESOME!
I used my other new set (from Simon Says Stamp as it happens) Sketchy Letters by Mama Elephant (LOVE). Don’t look too closely – the letters aren’t lined up quite as I’d have liked but I was in a rush!!!!).
Right, better get on with what I’m supposed to be doing – just wanted to share a little story about good customer care when all too often we complain about the exact opposite!!!!
ETA: The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is “Die Crazy” – need to link this baby up then don’t I?!
