Our house is a very, very, very fine house!

Just a quick post from me today - I am trying to get my head around working and fitting everything else in!
My dd Annabel and her b/f are moving tomorrow - to their first little house. They've been in Uni digs and flats before, so you can imagine how excited they are.
Here's a little CAS card I made for them.

I am really pleased with the overall look of this card - it's just a shame about the printed names - as you can see my printer is rubbish. I nearly went over them with my fineliner, but thought that would make it even worse!!

I printed the house onto scraps of DP and layered them up with foam pads.

Gorgeous card & good luck to them !

Not sure if this would maybe help with your printer

maybe you need to clean the heads on your printer mines does this sometimes or maybe jpeg your greeting then print i find it comes out a lot clearer that way
