Thinking of you................first Imagine card

I love love love my new Imagine.  When they first came out I thought "no way, no how" would I ever get one, it was priced way to high at $599. (thought the same about the Gypsy).  Then when I heard they were going pretty cheap on eBay I had to go check it out.  So I bid and got it for slightly over $150  with free shipping.   It arrived quickly but just a day before we left on vacation so I really didn't have much time to play with it.  Well long story short it was a bad one and had to be replaced, all the while thinking to myself what did I get into, I had already accumulated 7 cartridges by now.  Well PC was wonderful and had me my replacement Imagine in less than a week.   Fired that baby up and everything went very smooth.  Now I have been playing around with it and here is the first card I made.  All the papers were printed using the Imagine.  The flower is old one I made a long time ago but thought it worked well with the papers.
I am not too happy with how the "thinking of you" stamped, but there was nothing I could do about it.

That is very pretty, I wonder how cost effective it is printing the paper and the price of ink. Let me know I'm curious.
Have a wonderful day.

Awesome Donna!!! I got an Expression 2 not to long ago and so want an Imagine! I'm gonna have to check out ebay. I've never bid on there before so will be a new experience for me if I decide to go that route. Around $150 sounds really good to me! And I so love your flowers!! Always have. You make the best that I've ever seen!! :)

So pretty - I mean that flower. And what vibrant shades there. I would never have the guts to use orange with such ease and charm.
