Knowing your card is the pits... (First of many posts tonight)

I couldn't use the George image for my nephews birthday card.. as my printer/ink looks terrible... so had a very late/early hours play with some paper and a stamped image... totally dismal, I have posted it as a reminder to myself that tiredness and frustration are not a good mix... I didn't even get as far as adding any greeting.. still you live and learn...






Soooooooo then the next day I made this one for his 14th birthday... he's really into fast cars and says he is going to put it on a frame on his bedroom wall... so even if it is fairly simple, he is pleased with it and that is what matters... or else he is even more polite than I thought... ;-)

Hi G

Jordans card is great.
adn the other one don't be too hard on yourself there is nothing wrong with it.

G... First of all, the second card is great, and Jordan obviously loved it. Second of all, I second what Tracy said. But here's an idea (which has probably occurred to you by now anyway)...

If a stamped image is poor, or your printer doesn't print something perfectly, take a fine black pen (like a Hi-Tecpoint thingy) and trace around the outlines.

Job done.
