you wont like me when Im green...


Good morning everyone I hope your all well and having a great start to your week...it was brilliant to see I'm not alone in having done nothing for Christmas yet...and that some of you feel guilty about it like me too lol...the tree is still giving me guilty looks and is sitting in the corner sulking...well I headed for my craft room yesterday and decided to have a mass printing and colouring session but I couldn't get my printer to work at all...does anyone else have problems with their Epson printer?, I have never had this happen before and am stumped...in fact a couple of times it almost made it into the garden via the window lol...I will have another go today, now my temper has evened out a bit, keep your fingers crossed it works or listen out for a smashing window and a hulk type yell lol...right now onto my card for today...this is one of the brand new Return to Winter Wonderland release from Sugar Nellie...she is the beautiful Hey Little Birdie, I coloured her with my distress inks and glittered her up with loads of Stickles Glitter Glue - Star Dust...the fantastic papers are from the Echo Park - Reflections Christmas 6x6 Paper Pad, I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished with a punched snowflake, a rub on sentiment and a lush organza bow, would you believe I found this beautiful ribbon in my scraps box...I know shocker eh? and a charm from the Marianne D Winter Charms JU0871 pack, I like using charms as embellishments and the circle is using cut off with just scissors to do this...the fab sketch is from the Sketch N Stash Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Ribbon Girl Challenge and the Crafting When We Can Challenge too...I'm heading out with my Dad for a little while this afternoon, then our beautiful Daughter is calling in this evening...I will let you know if the printer is planted or not lol...whatever your up to today I hope its a peaceful calm one for you

Wonderful card Mina and such a sweet image.
I've got an Epson printer and if it plays up I usually reinstall the software or if it's dodgy printouts then it's always a case of running the printhead cleaner a few times and touchwood seems to work okay then
As for christmas - well I revert to the olden times when christmas started on christmas eve, then if I've forgotten something it just has to wait another year !! xx

Love the soft colors and your flawless coloring!
I'm pretty much done with my Christmas cards, but this last one is giving me a massive headache, that I just might consider buying someone else's card for this person and give it a rest. :)
Great card, Mina!

Adorable card, Mina! Love the soft colors. My Epson won't print if one of my colors is in need of replacing. The whole thing just shuts down. Could that be your problem?
