A bit of Fun - No need to adjust your screens!

Hi there

Today I have a fun card to share with you using a digi image that Kristen Powers gave Sav (over at Savannahland2) and I to play with. We decided to challenge ourselves to make a card up and thought it would be fun to make this cute little French girl for Valentine's Day.  Sorry about the background paper, it does look funny on my pc, all those little grids make my eyes go wonky lol

Sav got to post her card early because I've been having a nightmare with my computer.  We had a power out yesterday morning and it threw out our wireless connection.  For my Denami blog hop I had to talk my Mum through how to load a picture in Blogger.  Fortunately, I'd already written the post, just not added the piccie.  Phew, thanks for your help Mum.  I couldn't have done it without you!

It's really fun seeing how differently people interpret things.  I thought the girl's hat was the two separate sections, but I see Sav has done the top part as her hat and the rest as her hair.  Sav's is right, it's blatantly obvious to me now, but it just never occurred to me when I was colouring that it was her hair, I thought her hair was under her hat!!  Sorry Kristen for getting it wrong!!!  Now, I would have remade it, but if you knew just how loooooong it takes me to work with digi you would know that just wasn't an option so I hope I'm forgiven!  The little heart has the words 'je t'aime' on it.

The papers are Cosmo Cricket, the sentiment is this free digi one by Arielle, isn't it fun!

Go and see what Sav made, she did a much better job of it than me, but it was fun seeing what we both came up with.  She's just found out she won over at Papercrafts Connection too, so go on over and congratulate her!  Sav and I just 'clicked' when we first started chatting, we've been friends ever since.  Thanks for the challenge sweetie! x

So, I'm off to check up on my poor little princess who got sent home from school today, she's in bed but very restless.  I will be around to comment over the next few days, but with my pc being down and her being poorly I'm very behind.  Thank you for all your wonderful comments on my Denami blog hop card yesterday, I had fun reading them on my Blackberry.  It kept me sane when I couldn't get on line properly!  I've tried to do comments from it but it takes too long to load and times out. 

It's good to be back in the land of the living!

  2. AWE!! Ruby this card is sooooooooooooooo cute! I love that paper-and I love how you did her hat! It looks great! It looks just like you saw it--like her hat is longer or doubled layers! I didn't even notice until you said something!! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! This was a fun challenge! Where did you get that sentiment from?

    You are right--we just clicked! LOVE that you are such a fabulous friend:) LOVE LOVE LOVE you!

    So sorry about the PC problems--love that your mom helped you out! And so sorry that Tinks is sick! POOR thing! Give her lots and lots of hugs from me:) Hope she feels better soon!

  3. YOU made my heart smile with this card!! She is wonderful and I don't think there is anything "wrong" about it! I really love it. Thank you for taking this image and making it so special!!

  4. This is so adorable!! I didn't even notice anything about the hat until you pointed it out. Love how her coat & background have the same pattern. So glad you're getting everything sorted out, Ruby!! xoxo
