Lightbulb Duh! Quick and easy sol'n for writing in dark cards

Was I the last one to figure out that plain index cards (the 4 x 6) size, with the short side cut 3/4 inches that it makes a perfect layer for the inside of a dark card so you can write on it? And here I was cutting layers for them! I know I could use gel pens, but they're not my favorite.

Aaah! I hope someone else there needs to learn this too - especially at 50 cents for 100 index cards!

Hadn't thought of that one either, thanks! I usually use a metallic CM pen.

Even cheaper, use some photocopy paper cut down to size.

What would we do without all you gals and all the shortcuts/money savers/sales you come up with? Now this is co-depedancy at it's finest!
