Last year I joined in an ICAD swap (think it was last year ?) never being happy with what I make I had made several which were not used, found them the other day, along with a box full of tags, anyhow this topper is one of them, struggled to put it on a card until I suddenly realised I was trying to use it with a square card and it just didn't go! I hardly ever used anything but 6x6 cards but I did have a few 5x7 so tried it on one and yes, made all the difference. The two back layers are out of my mountain of inky papers, stamped the middle one with the same TH stamp as on the topper and mounted all the layers on black card, will maybe add a sentiment later.  Just squeezing it in for

and after my yesterday post about my printer, my DH squirted some magic stuff  from an aerosol into various apertures in the printer and hey presto its working again! I am still looking for a wireless printer but can take my time in finding the right one.


  1. Hello Joan,
    This is a stunning card and you have put it together beautifully.

  2. LOVE this, Joan, it's just beautiful and the colours are gorgeous. It is surprising what a difference the shape of the card can make, isn't it? I sympathise with your printer woes. I've had mine for even longer than yours, I think. It came free with the first laptop I bought, and I'm now on the third, but the printer is still going! On its last legs now, though, and the print quality is no longer as good as it used to be so I have been thinking I need a new one, and like you, wondering what sort to get. Let me know if you come across a good one!

  3. Wow! This is stunningly gorgeous, Joan! I love the colours!
    I bought a canon printer and have been delighted with it. It scans as well and never gets clogged, despite me using cheap replacement cartridges.

  4. Stunning card the inky backgrounds. x

  5. Beautiful card Joan. The inky backgrounds are the perfect setting for the butterflies. Thank you for joining us at Make My Monday.

  6. Joan this card looks stunning! LOVE the colours and layered on black they really pop.

  7. This looks beautiful Joan. I am not a good person to recommend a printer I'm afraid. It seems no matter what brand I buy all I have to do is look at them and they break!! Have a lovely week. Nicola x
