Two simple cards

This is my housemouse which for some reason now I have uploaded it looks wonky, it isn't in real life I promise you. I have tried to keep it quite crisp as the image is large.


challenges

spoonful of sugar - blue and green

house mouse - embossing

papertake weekly - ribbons and pearls

I was happy with this until I have seen other people's colouring of the image and may just start all over again. The image is of course one of the new adorables from sugar nellie, papers are BG.

Challenges

Allsorts- Teal, blue and brown
Charisma - good luck
Wild Orchard Crafts - sentiment

Hello Vicky, Love the cards ( I get the occasional wonky pic as well, too much hurry In my case). thanks for picking me out of the hat over on magical monday challenges, sent you an email on the 15th when my internet was fixed but have not heard anything yet!, perhaps my internet is not as fixed as I thought it was, can you let me know if you got it or not. Love and hugs Heidi, ps, just love the challenges and the theme of 'magical' xxx

Love your Sugar Nellie card ... I bought the digi last week of the full body (is there just a headshot, or did you crop it?) ... I think you should be very pleased with what you created here - it looks wonderful!

Rica said...

Hi Vicky, tee-hee - all my cards look wonky when I upload them I swear I have one eye higher in my head than the other so they don't see straight!!
Two gorgeous cards, I love the clean, elegant, monochrome look of the House Mouse one and the papers on the Joy one are stunning - I must say I love Joy with red hair - fantastic!!

So glad you could join us at House Mouse & Friends,
hugs Heather xx
