I Like MOSTMOM1's (Shelli) WOO HOO cards!! Template Suggestion?!
Wednesday, May 08, 2013      7 comments

mostmom1 recently had a videoblog about her woohoo game... and of course, i haven't asked her yet (shelli, are you reading this??) whether she made up a whole bunch of woohoo cards all at once, or if she cuts each one out at the time she decides she has a woohoo to write out and put into captain woohoo jar. but...i thought, hmmm maybe i could make a woohoo card template out of my prehistoric word program and then get some nice sparkpeople colored papers (you know, red, orange, green, blue), to print out some pages of this template, cut them out, and then when i have a woohoo i want to save, i will already have some slips of paper ready to write and woohoo on! of course, my template will have to be black and white, because i'm still a luddite and only have a black and white laser printer. thus, my idea of using the "colored paper" as a cheat. i suppose it could be done in such a way that people could print it in colored ink, but that's between you and your printer. and your pocketbook. for that matter, i haven't looked at the price of colored papers lately. hmmm well they do go on sale every so often... let's see if i can bring up my word document as a link... and maybe i should do it as .pdf as well?? ohhh well, hmmm maybe not. the uploader says it "must be an image." hmmm what to do? okay, so i've taken a screen print of my word document template, as an end run. now you can see this as a miniature of my suggestion. it really needs professional help, and the official sparkpeople gurus can maybe doctor it up and work their magic and include it as one of the community tools. hopefully that, and not a cease-and-desist order from their corporate lawyer, offering to meet me at the court. ehhh... so, i saved it as a .jpg image. here goes:
