About Me

Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 55 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, tatting, X stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Masculine Birthday

This week on Mod Squad Challenge Blog http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/ we were asked to make a card using the theme LOVE IS IN THE AIR.
For my card I used a Tiddly Ink image colored with Spectrum Noir pens. When I color an image I always start with the hair & face.  Those are the two areas I struggle the most with.  Last night I did a really pretty face but horrible hair so today I colored a second image.  I did the hair first and was pleased with the result and then the face.  I have a new Epson printer and the ink ran on her face.  Needless to say I was not happy but finished the image anyway. Heat drying probably helps but it also curls the paper.   Does anyone have a suggestion for removing printer ink that runs?
