Leah and I bought this eyelet lace embossing border punch made by Fiskars at JoAnn's. It didn't emboss--just cut. So we brought it back and exchanged it for another one. Same problem. I spent a long time trying to find where to send, then trying to send (can't have more than one picture, I guess), and finally finding a "live" person to have an IM conversation with--hehe! Got it straightened out how to send a picture and where. Now I just have to wait to hear from them.
The top row is just punched normally. The bottom row was punched as hard as I could standing--and you can barely see where the embossed line and dots are supposed to show surrounding those eyelet holes.
It's a lovely border punch, so I hope we can get a replacement that actually works. Never had any problems buying from Fiskars before?? Now we'll see how their customer service is. I was impressed with the "live" person to answer questions. So far, so good, eh?
It has warmed up during the day--but it is so chilly in the mornings. No sprawling for Karma as she waits for the sun. Right now it is 38 degrees! The sun is out, but it is too cold to leave the porch door open. They're thinking 72 today--we'll see.
Probably a good thing Leah isn't coming over for a while. I have been pretty useless lately. Not having very productive days. On a fibro flare--again. Headaches, more pain, weakness, pain dreams--the usual. It will pass. They come and go. Can last days or weeks, but they do let up--eventually--hehe! :):)

Hope everybody has been having a better weekend than mine--ROFL!!

Miss Karma says hi.

She's always excellent company. :):)

Sorry to hear your fibro is flaring up, Rita....I hope passes sooner than later.

Bad luck on the embossing tool...hopefully, they won't take forever sending a replacement for you.

Hi Serena,
Me, too!! I never know. It has taught me patience. No wonder I am so grateful for Netflix, eh?

I asked Fiskars if they would PLEASE take the punch out of the package and check it before they mail us another one--hehe! I sure hope they do. It is a beautiful, delicate punch when it is working. :)
