Talked into.....

Just got back from a mini shopping spree....my mum needed a bra and my son wanted to check out some cameras so whilst my mum and I were lingerie shopping the boys including my grandson went camera shopping, when we met up for a coffee later my son said we needed a new printer......the ink had run out the night before because I had printed quite a few papers for some DT work for Cuddly Buddly.......when I say quite a few ......is was about 50+, now just because we had run out of ink I couldn't see the need for a new printer all we needed was a new cartridge or so I thought........but my son is very good at talking us round, like if you have a higher resolution the papers will look even better, its nearly as cheap  to buy a new printer as it is to buy new ink, this printer has seperate cartridges so it'll be cheaper in the long run..........etc. you get the idea don't you.....so guess what we buy a new printer that I'm assured will produce better quality papers, can scan my pictures in, etc. etc.Not sure if I'm an easy pushover................by the way my mum did get her bra but after finding the right size she asks how much it was, so I tell her £12.....oh I could get 4 she says, managed to talk her into getting just 2 and a pair of trousers....so shes happy and so is my son.

After all that the card I've made is a DT card using a Cuddly Buddly stamp called Ballerina Bear coloured in with distress inks and h2o's, the papers are called Patchwork in Plum again from Cuddly Buddly and the flowers are from Prima, my grandson helped me punch out the leaves....he loves my craft room but he's like a mini tornado when he's in there....ahhh!!!

Hi Daniele,
I think I will be doing the same as you and buying a printer with separate colour cartridges once my current ink runs out. I hope you are getting on with your new printer.
Your card is gorgeous and your colouring is superb.
Thank you for joining us at Sir Stampalot this month.
