Message from Monique...

On a personal note, I would like to request a moment of silence for our messagboard friend and fearless Bug Guide leader, Admin Becky.  She was let go by PC yesterday due to "workforce reduction".  She is the last person they should have cut, as she made an enormous difference on the messageboard, which is a huge profit machine, and was always there to answer everyone's questions and take care of issues.  An amazingly valuable asset to PC, and not replaceable.  Admin Becky, you will be greatly missed, and the world of Cricut will not be the same without you!!!

Becca, great card!

Monique, congrats on going big time with your new shopping cart application!

Can't understand why pc has to cut anyone. They are making a killing and always bringing new stuff out for us to buy, which we always do!

Supposedly this recession is over HA. So say the folks with fat Wall Street wallets and CEO's. So sorry to hear another valuable person has been "reduced". What a shame.

The card is beautiful and will bring a smile to the recipient for sure!

Jana said...

I LOVE coffee and this card would definitely made me better. I am sure it will work the same way for Becca's sister.

Just A Pac Rat said...

I love your card! Sometimes a cup of coffee or tea is not just a drink but a few minutes to relax and ponder whether it be about friends, life, work or a task to be completed. It's also a great socialism tradition. TFS

Loving the "Love You a Latte Card", the cup & the sentiment go together so wonderfully. I'm sorry to hear about Becky. These are very tough times! My son was laid off last month, as his company had folded.

Sweet card! And I own and LOVE this cartridge. I drove 40 mins during my lunch hour to buy it the day it was out. Have been using it ever since!
Sorry to hear about Admin Becky! Layoffs stink! Espeically when its a good employee. I have been having the most difficult time getting some help w/my Gypsy. I think I got a lemon :(

crickyc said...

This card is wonderful and I love the paper that was used! Also I hope your sister's surgery went well today.
I'm sorry to hear about Admin Becky...I wish her the best.

Really nice card Becca. The more creations I see done with Kate's Abc cart the more I want that cartridge.
Becky will be missed she's an amazind asset PC let go. There loss. TFS

maryvernau said...

I am so very saddened to hear about Admin. Becky. This is what happens when companies grow too fast and forget that their most valuable assets are their loyal and taletd employees. PC already has enough customer service issues. I have noticed-lack of common sense in many of their decisions.

NanetteMT said...

What a sweet card! I'm sure your sister will love it.
