Image Transfer For Card Making Made EasyWritten by Flora Tan

3. Place it face up on a flat working surface. 4. Cut out a piece of clear cellophane tape about size of image. 5. Cover image with clear cellophane tape. 6. Use your thumb to rub over clear tape. 7. Soak tape in water for a minute. 8. Remove paper from tape by gently rubbing on it. The soaked paper will come off easily leaving image on tape. 9. Dry tape and attach to your card or paper. If tape is not sticky enough, just add some glue.
If it's a black and white image and you want to add some color, just add glitter glue to image on tape.
Actually, you can use this same technique to make your own stickers for scrapbooking. Beside using photocopied images, you can also use images cut out from magazines.
Do this with children. They will love it.

What is Poison Croquet?Written by Peter Jay
Continued from page 1
Once a player has become poison, other players can still become poison and win game, although it is much more difficult. The other players still just have to finish course and hit stake at end with their ball, but must do it without allowing player who is currently poison to strike their ball with his or hers. If two or more players are poison, player who hits his ball into otherís first, wins (similar to marbles); or at least that player who was hit by a poison ball is out of game. Once all players are eliminated, except one, game is over and final remaining player wins game. Poison croquet is popular among amateur croquet and yard game players because of its casual play and simple rules. One advantage of poison croquet is that it can be played on nearly any type of terrain. Like American or backyard nine-wicket croquet, poison croquet is traditionally played in any grass field, long or tall, thick or thin. However, poison croquet can also be played on other terrains to make it more interesting or to just change things. It can be played on a more rugged terrain or playing field with obstacles rather than being limited to a professional or well-groomed playing field.
