Howdy Doody

The saga of the printers goes on - first one completely kaput - binned. The second one John got from work says they were getting rid of it - obvious why when I tried to use it - sounded like an exocet and printed with many various smudges - binned. Got the old printer out of the loft - just needed new inks - bought them - its that old had to be recleaned which used ALL the pink and blue ink- at least it does print black but as soon as that goes I am buying a new printer - which is what I should have done last week - as I have spent over £50 on inks this week thinking thats what the problem was - on a happy note I have just won £40 on last weeks lottery so I am only £15 out of pocket. aaaaaaaaaarggghhhhhhhh

Anyway, I have been using stamps as in proper wooden ones rather than my lovely digis. Here is a card I have just finished - I have finally opened up my Lily of the Valley paper pad - but it hurt!!!
