with lots of blue butterflies!
Do you ever wish you hadn't started a project? This could have been one of those times..but thankfully it turned out better than I had hoped.
I had been planning on making an easel card as a sample for one of my card class lessons. I thought I would save one of the papers (not this one) so I could make another card for my Occasion box....wrong move. When I tried to print it my printer wouldn't print blue. I spent ages cleaning the heads, replacing cartridges because the ink then ran out etc etc...after about an hour I gave up. When Terry came home he also tried, cleaning the nozzles etc. He finally got the blue working after replacing more cartridges and then couldn't get the magenta to work!!!
After more head cleaning he suddenly realized he hadn't removed the little piece of tape over the breather hole!!
I did get to make this calendar though.
I have been making a lot of Black and White cards as well as gold and cream cards lately. It has been a joy to play with one of my favourite colours again.
