G is for...

Hey all, it's another week and another new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenge.  This week, the challenge is G is for Guys or Girls.  I decided to use one of may fave gals, Stella from Bugaboo for my card.  She never fails to crack me up. 
I'm having problems with my printer though, whenever I print on good paper the ink just sits on top and then flakes off.  (Stella's legs are a bit hairy looking due to the flaky ink!)  Not sure how to fix this, other than a new printer.  If anyone has any tips, please pass them along!


Challenges:
Sketch - Merry Monday
Anything Goes with Kraft - Papertake Weekly
Joke or Silly sentiment - 365 Cards
Humour - Crafty Cardmakers
April Fools Day - Created With Love

Super cute image. Love Stella. I think her having hairy legs would be about right. Sorry don't have any advice on the printer. Thanks for joining our April Fools Day challenge at Created With Love Challenges

Stella always makes me smile. Can I have Santa's naughty boy list too please?

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers for our humour challenge. Thanks also for bearing with us with the link moderating thing. Sadly it became necessary because of the large number of people who appeared to not have bothered to read our challenge requirements. Good luck!

Sweet card love Stella, thanks for playing along with us this week at Created With Love Challenges. As for the printer try different paper some that you may have laying around even patterned paper turned over and see if it is that if not then try printing on fast draft and use your heat tool on it before you start to color. I do that on all mine to dry the ink completely! Hope this helps.

In this case, hairy legs is perfect, Emma! And I love how you fit her into the Merry Monday sketch!

Sometimes printing on a different setting helps. You might try a premium photo paper setting and heat set when finished. The heat setting seems to help set the ink. Hope it helps.
