SISC #27…Not!

If you are looking for the Smeared & Smudged Blog Hop, please click HERE. Thanks!

Yes, yes…it’s StampInsnaity Challenge day…but alas…my computer or printer or Photoshop is wonky this week. Not really sure what it is…but all of my images are suddenly printing blurry. Like, real blurry and pixilated . And I had such a fab card I was gonna make for this week too!!! The challenge is to make a one layer card. That’s right ONE layer! Which is awesome with me because that’s all I used to do! But, that meant I needed to print out my card from scratch… which, given the wonkiness of my technology…couldn’t happen.

Luckily, I had a card made for an occasion such as this one! No, it doesn’t fit the challenge, but you’ll forgive me right??? And if someone can someway figure out how in the heck to fix my “issues,” then I will certainly make the card that I had intended to make! But for now…please enjoy this one!

Extra-Card-1

This is of course from the Katie with a Cure set. I love coloring Katie and her ribbon in. It’s intended for Breast Cancer, but think of all the possibilities! Did you know that if you purchased this set, all the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen fund? Don’t you think it’s time you grabbed this set for yourself?

Extra-Card-2

Here’s a close up of Katie. I love how joyful she looks! She has been colored with my colored pencils. Please click on any of the images to see it bigger!

Extra-Card-3

And how can you go wrong with this sentiment??? I added a little bit of color using some of the same pencils I used on Katie and her ribbon, just to give it some pop. I also inked the torn edges, and the peachy cardstock on the bottom.

Now please visit the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! Then you can see what this week’s challenge is supposed to look like! Thanks for bearing with me!

Cute card! Such a great set to have on hand these days (unfortunately).
Don't know if you've fixed your printer yet...have you tried reinstalling it? Or just realigning the print heads and printing a test page? Just some ideas...
