I’m dreaming of a White Christmas….. Okay, not really. It is way too early to start thinking about snow, but I am thinking about Christmas cards. I know if I don’t get started now, I’ll never have enough done by December.
I had this cute image from Whimsy and Stars Studio in my files and realized I never used him. So to set things right, I had to make a Christmas card using him.
I ended up doing some paper piecing because I was having issues with coloring. Although I am using the same printer, ink cartridge, paper and markers that I always use, suddenly I am having issues with the ink from the image smearing. I even tried heat setting the image and am still having issues. Has this ever happened to anyone else? How did you fix it? Its driving me nuts!
I’m going to keep this short today. Have a great week! Thank you for stopping by!
