I've been away on a trip and missing on my blog. Glad to get home but missing my son and his family like crazy. My trip explains why I haven't been to visit your blogs lately or uploaded since my little snowmen. I will remedy that soon. I may have to miss commenting on what I didn't catch while I was away but go from now.
I cased a card that belonged to Cindy aka frenziedstamper on Splitcoasterstampers. She is the new reigning Queen for the Day. Here is her gorgeous card. I would have loved to have used those same colors but needed to change it up a bit. It's an easy CAS card...just some stamping and sponging.
I did soften my photo a bit. After other tweaking, it was still starker than in real life. Yikes! I didn't like that look so you get the mellow version. It is still so much brighter than in real life. I kind of wish, also, that I had stamped my sentiment in black.
I'm going over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop with my card. Now, that is one fun place to visit. I always leave with a big grin on my face after reading Di's posts. Makes my day! My birdies were made with snippets of white cardstock which I inked in blue. My stamped panel was also from snippets...is that a big snippet? Ha
The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to use a product from their store and name it: My product is Memento 4 Dew Drop Ink Pads-Farmer's Market. I'm using the cantaloupe ink from that set. They are also celebrating STAMPtember with a blog hop.
