This card wasn’t put up on the Paper Players site because my files are always too big.  Bet there’s a way to fix that…

Here’s your “B-ism” for today…


Come get inky with me…Be HaPpY!



  1. Billie, regarding your “files always too big.” Here’s what I’ve learned:On your photo that you want to post somewhere, right click on the photo and choose “resize photo”, then tell it either “small” or “medium”, then give it a minute to resize it, then you can post it where you want. Hope that helps.

    • I just knew if I put that out there someone would come to my rescue…thanks, Carole!…B
