Giddy up

Evening all be fore I start just bare with me a moment AAAAAaaaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhh........................................................ right now I have that off my chest no I am not going crazy I just get really enoyed with the way my pictures look on here I so need a new camera its really doing my head in I mean how can I expect anyone to concider me to work on their design team with these pictures oh I am so fed up.
well I shall tell you how I made this card even though you can't see it all that well.
The image is from Elizabeth Bells blog she is a digi and she is soooo adorable I just love ms Bells work she is truely one incredibly talented lady I am sure you will agree.I coloured her with promarkers,lots of glitter is on the card but it is quite hard to see where or if it there at all but I promise it definately is lol.The sketch is from Sketch saturday,papers are papermania,MS border punch,paper roses from my stash and some s/a pearls to finish plus I distress the edges of my topper with a subtle pink inkpad versamagic one I think.I hope you can just about see the main image as this is the main focal point I will try my hardest to sort my camera problem out soo but they can be quite expensive so I can't be sure when so please bare with me on that one.
These are the challenges I am entering:
Crafts and me-distressing
Quirky-girly girl
Your next stamp-border punch

Thankyou very much for popping over and putting up with me while I had a bit of a paddy lol

Love the glittery detail - nicely visible if you click on pic. My husband bought me a camera about 18 months ago & it's taken me a year to learn how to operate it but I'm so so thankful - we were just out & popped into a shop & he did it there & then, picking an Olympus & insisting that I be able to take photos of what I was doing then with ATCs. I'm so grateful now as I can really appreciate what he bought me when I'm using it - if you want details I can send them to you - have just checked price & it is what I would consider a bit pricey but worth every penny. Olympus mju 1060.

Hi Lorraine,
Your card is gorgeous! I love the adorable image. It is such a shame when our cameras don't capture the full beauty of our cards. Have you got a camera on your phone? That's what I used for ages and got pretty good results.
Thank you so much for joining us at Sir Stampalot this month.

Love this card Lorraine, and I know you had a horrible experience re photo quality earlier this year, but stop trashin' yourself. A beautiful card is a beautiful card regardless of photo quality!!!
Love as always Gina x x x

Hi Lorraine

What a lovely sweet image and you have coloured her beautifully.

Afraid I have too many of those camera moments as well, I try to blame the camera but I think it really is me and my shake.

Thanks for joining us at Stampalot Challenge and good luck.

Elaine said...

I sympathise Lorraine. I don't own a camera so I have to use the one on my phone, though I have to say it's not a bad little camera.
Anyway, your card is gorgeous,love the colours, sweet image and the flowers are fab.
Don't stress over your photos!
Love Elaine xx
