HAND DELIVERED FOR ST. PATTY'S DAY and I FINALLY LEARNED HOW TO PRINT CUSTOM SENTIMENTS INSIDE A CARD!

Card 1

Hello, Stampers!
     I don't know about where you are, but here in Indiana, we have high winds - in fact, our mailbox post snapped!  It was getting loose and most likely the in-ground part was pretty rotten.  But still - yikes!
     Anyway, I just wanted to make one or two St. Patrick's Day cards - as you have probably figured out, DH is Irish.  I don't have any Patty's Day sets, so I settled on the Stampin' Up! host set, Hand Delivered (p.229).  Also, I no longer have any Patty's Day sentiment stamps except my 15-year-old Teeny Tiny Wishes set, so what do I add on the inside?
     I grabbed a big mug of tea and set to work.  I use MS Word so I looked online starting with that, and what I saw involved text boxes and paper sizes, etc., and my printer is pretty old, so I have to use standard sizes.  Me thought to meself, there must be an easier way.  After quite a bit of trial and error, I have three documents saved all set up, just using different margins.  Ta dah!
   It's much faster, of course, to stamp something, but if you don't have what you want or need, there are lots of free sentiments online, so long as you are mindful of copyrights, etc.
   Here is the second, easier card I made - same set, but I didn't go so overboard on the balloons.  Find the instructions for these cards on my blog.  Just click any of the photos and "read more" on the blog.
