Seaside Wedding

I had the seaside stamp from Magnolia since last year and thought it would work with the new Wedding couple but I'm not sure on the Kaiser papers. There's a stitching challenge on Papertake Weekly so I got out a brown pen and faux stitched, I thought I was being a bit cheeky to do this so I can enter the challenge but I'm glad I did because it takes the plainess away from the background.
I spent a good couple of hours yesterday getting my new printer set up and making sure that it does talk to my PC. Then finally I brought a couple of digi images and printed them out on thin card I use from staples. Oh yes its brilliant not a smudge in sight.
Do I think this will stop me from buying stamps of course not. I'm a lazy crafter having to resize and print it out by that time I've already stamped the images I wanted but it does mean if an image catches my eye or if my hands get worse I know now I can print them out.

Morning Debbie

Your card is great, love how you have offset the images outside the frame.

Sorry it's been a while since I visited, but only just feeling well enough again.

Beautiful card Debby. I think the Kaiser paper is perfect as it is the right colours but it doesn't take anything away from the beautiful colours of the seaside stamp or wedding couple. :-) xx

Fab combination of stamps, Debby! Love the punched border at the bottom, they're kind of wave like!

Glad to hear that the new printer is working too :-)
