There She Goes (Again!)

Friday, February 15, 2013

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentines Day! The Man surprised my little girl and I with flowers, a card and a small present. He had already left for work when we came down stairs for breakfast, so they were lying on the table, waiting for us. You should have seen my little girl's face light up! It was precious! Then, when I heated up the pancakes I had made earlier in the week, I cut heart shapes into them...she just beamed ear to ear at that! lol 

It's the final day of our There She Goes (Again!) week and I have a brand new card to share with you all using one of the sets we've been featuring all week long.

Bloom was one of the very first sets I owned from TSG. In fact, Jess sent me it as part of my guest designer stint with TSG wayyyyyy back in 2009! It was my favorite flower set back then, and it still is today! I just love it! 

I wanted to keep this card simple since the flower was so big and bold. I used some scrap MME and October Afternoon paper and my go-to neutral - kraft cardstock. The image was watercolored with SU's Rich Razzleberry, Cranberry Crisp, Soft Suede and Old Olive. The background was lightly watercolored with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I sewed each panel to some of my favorite colored Bazzil Basics cardstock - Bitter Chocolate and layered everything with the help of dimensionals.

Here's a close up of my watercoloring.

You might have noticed that my photos are a little clearer now. I couldn't stand how blurry my images had become lately. It wasn't my camera, but Blogger that was doing it. So, after a bit of Googling, I found out that if I uploaded them to an external, online source (like Photobucket or Flickr), that would eliminate the blur. It worked! I'm so happy now! I hope you're enjoying it too!

Please check out what the rest of the Trendsetters have whipped up for you today over at the There She Goes blog! You won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much for stopping by this week! I'll see you all next week with some sneak peeks! :D Have a good one!

Gorgeous card Sandra! I used to do the Flickr thing... but you run out of room and then they want you to pay $24 a year to be able to keep adding. I just started resizing my photos to the exact blog column size and then they stay sharp and not compromised. Love your cards!

Can I simply say what a comfort to find a person
that truly understands what they're discussing on the web. You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of your story. I can't believe you
are not more popular because you surely have the gift.
