MTME Pretty Patterns #78

** Scroll down for the Delightful Challenges post **

Hi everyone!  Thanks for coming back.  Today starts my Christmas vacation and guess what happened last night.  The unspeakable... it's a catastrophe... I almost cried.... MY PRINTER DIED!!  OK, in perspective to having happy, healthy kids - a job, a roof over my head... it's not that bad.  But ugh!  So what do I do?  I go looking for another, inexpensive printer.  Found one, loved the reviews and specs so I ordered it.  For $39 - it's a steal.... and not in stock.  Double ugh!  So then I found another and this one is less money - $29. The ink cartridges cost more!  So, hopefully, I'll be able to pick up a new printer later today.

Good thing I had this digi printed already to get my card created to share with you.  This two week challenge for MTME Pretty Patterns, we're still reviewing Tangii's great sketches.  I picked this one to work with...

And here's what I did with it.  *gasp!*  Not a Christmas card!

I am featuring my all time favorite set.  This is Bee Loved and Bee Loved Sentiments.  I also tried the ribbon/button treatment that was recently featured on Stamp TV.  I'm pretty sure I've attempted this before but Gina K made it so much easier.

Please come join us at My Time Made Easy.

3 Encouraging Thoughts:

Nooooooo....that was that sad noise I heard last night, then, your wail of dismay as the printer bit it. I don't think I could name anyone who uses digis as often as you do - you need that new one STAT! Ink is more costly per mL than anything else - including gas, alcohol, you name it. Funny, printer ink is the only one that's THAT expensive...

I feel your pain! Literally... our printer is in the shop and we probably won't get it until after the new year!
I love your card!! So pretty and spring-y!!
