Ok, seeing how this looks and a Color Challenge!

Wellll, I still do not have everything set on the puter like I need YET. I had grandbaby last week and just could not do it with him here. BUT I did get some cards made, some for a swap that I cant show just yet and this card. I only could edit this photo in the program that came with my camera. It will let me crop and adjust color if needed..I dont like how you put text on it and I have to adjust size on my camera...so seeing how this looks here on the ole blog for the first time, lol! I also made this for the Color Throw Down Challenge found HERE. We were to use Pink Piroutte, Chocolate Chip, and Riding Hood Red.
Ok here it is:



I know blogger resizes them too, but like when you click on this picture of the card, it will probably be HUGE! LOL! Anyways...I did a bit of watercoloring on this card, using the SU! ink pads. The image was stamped then embossed with clear embossing powder to help me stay in the lines, lol. All the other you can tell what I did I imagine! I also did up the inside really pretty because even though I am late mailing this out, I am still going to send!

Ok, off to work on more cards. I have bought me a sewing machine, lol! And the last time I touched a sewing machine was when I took home economics that my Mom forced me to take in 9th grade in high school...about 32 years ago, haha! Should be interesting, no? rofl!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. And thanks to everybody that stuck around through my down time (I guess you would call it, lol) And now crossing fingers this card doesnt look fugly....

EDITED TO ADD:
HAHA! NOT huge...its TINY...
Ok, so I resized with my camera a bit much I do believe!! LOL! I will try a different setting next time!

Cat - glad to see you are back up and running. When I clicked on the photo I got just the same sized image. I kind of like to be able to click and have it be bigger so you can see all the great details. I was just sitting here thinking about you this a.m. I have the Dream medallion you made me hanging on my lamp right in front of me every day! Thanks! ~chris
