tilda and edwin

I have been looking at printers today. Wow there is so many out there i didnt know where to begin. I am looking for an all in one printer that i can use to print digi images onto watercolour paper and print out digi backgrounds. Also i need one that has cheap ink refills and good quality print outs. If any of you have a good printer or know of one could you let me know the make and model, it would be good to have a few to compare.

On to my card for today.

I have tried something new today. I have stitched around the edge. I don't have a sewing machine so have done this by hand. It took ages but i am glad i did it as it adds to the card. My base card is bazzill`s kraft card, then a layer of green card(i cant remember the name of it). The yellow gems are from a stash i got off ebay.


The flowers are all from wild orchid crafts. The red beads are also from wild orchid crafts and coloured them red to look like berries. I wanted them to look like holly with holly leaves. The punches used to cut out the leaves and branches can be found at crafts u love




The ribbon is also from ebay. I do love ebay. And yes as you can see its another easel card.


The stamp is magnolia sister and brother. Love this stamp so cute. I have coloured the image with distress inks and cut out with spellbinders large deckled nestabilities.


I have added a pocket for a tag with a message.
The tag is the magnolia tag die cutter. The Merry Christmas sentiment is again from ebay.



The DP is a 12x12 paper by BoBunny called snowy serenade winter night. It is a very glittery paper but the picture doesnt show it up that well.
