Ladybug Crafts Ink - sketch

This week at Ladybug Crafts Ink we have a lovely sketch for you from Tams which she got from HERE. Tams is still recovering from her operation but its hard to keep her down!! I loved working with this sketch and used it to make a mother's day card for my son's girlfriend's mum (thats a mouthful isn't it). I was in terrible bad form having spent yesterday trying to get my printer to take refilled ink cartridges. From 10 in the morning till 8 at night, I was totally frustrated and lets say the air was blue and that wasn't just my inky fingers!! I ended up buying a new canon printer just for the cartridges as it was cheaper than buying the cartridges!! Is that daft or what!! Anyway I am back up and printing again:) for another wee while.

Image - Martini Nikki
Papers - We R Memory keepers
Embellishments - pearls, nestie, faux stitching
Medium - promarkers
I you haven't been over to LADYBUG CRAFTS INK recently then pop over. You would not believe the gorgeous new items Kerry has added....so tempting:)

What a fabulous card Pinky, love it!

Oh, refilling ink cartridges brings back lots of memories, ink everywhere and awful printing. Wonder why the cartridges can cost so much...Glad that your problems are solved for a while.
