Hi everyone... I know I usually post late late Tuesday night but needed to rest last night with so many "clutz" related tiny accidents I had yesterday. My eye is doing better but let me see what a ding dong of a clutz I was yesterday to share with you all. Stubbed my left pinky toe... tripped over kiddie backpack... banged my elbow on a chair arm rest... played too hard with little one and banged up my right side ribs... ok I'll stop there! I think you all can see where this is going and what sort of day I had yesterday. LOL! Nothing bad... I was just cursed with the clutz fairy or something


These are comments for the creations I missed in the last challenge...


LisaW.: awesome layout! Love the half and half with the ribbon tying them up together

cstanzione: beautiful creations as always and you've been so busy again! Love love love your pink and purple butterfly card... gorgeous! The Halloween card is so cute, great details! Very pretty last card as well. All your wall hangings are stunning! Do you ever sleep? It would take me days to make just one of those! Beautiful job, Cindy!

Question though guys, how can I create the who its by at the end of my card? I need to start doing that but unaware of how to do this. One thing you will learn quickly about me is that I'm am so technically challenged that it is ridiculous. I'll ask a 100 times before I can ever truly learn something new! But determined to learn it nevertheless. :)


Are you talking about the watermarks on people's images? I'm not sure about your question, however, if it is... I used Adobe Photoshop to insert those. I don't know about everyone else

Hi Raquel,

Just love those designs and what a great extra credit for us all to try.

That fairy was not very nice to you yesterday, hope today is better for you. Thanks for the blog help, as you can see I managed itBigGrin Blushing .

I just love your card. Great use of the eyelets ( I have read in a few places that they are to be the new big thing) So clean are all the cuts and great colours too.


Dee - What lovely fresh colours you have chosen this week for us.


Sue

Raquel....thanks for the great sketches and the extra credit. I'm sorry to hear about all your "little bumps." I'm so glad that the eye didn't turn out to be something serious. I speak from experience on that!

I didn't get to comment on last weeks cards, but we had some really special ones.

Cindy...I'm always amazed at your ability to produce multiple cards and items. Good luck with selling them.

Raquel....Loved your series of "Smile" cards.

Across the pond....Congratulations on your Blog.

Off to have breakfast now.

Dee

Raquel, thanks for hosting! I really do like the sketches and can't wait to get started on them! Thanks for the extra push on the extra credit! Oh, so sorry to hear about your clutzy day yesterday! Sad Great sketch 1 card! I really love the added white dots to the words too! It really gave it the perfect touch!

Dee, I think I actually have those colors, but the blue in a paper! BigGrin I am so excited that I should be able to use the ad colors this time! Thanks for choosing them! ThumpUp

So far so good! No bruises yet! I just came home from taking my son for his follow up. His elbow is healing nicely and we need to see the doctor in another 3 months just to make sure it is growing properly... no problems in that department so far

Raquel,
Thanks for Hosting this week and for the nice simple sketches you made for us. You are SO creative! OhMyGod Glad you survived yesterday, after all your small Booboos!
#1 - LOVE the eyelets with the ribbons, and the striped BG paper. The sentiment really pops with the addition of the white dots. Love all the colors, too!

DeeScraps,
Thanks for the nice Ad Color Challenge for this week. Will go a-hunting in my stash and see what I find!

There are a few ways... you can attach them as a file or you can use the "insert image" option

Attach as a file:

When you are posting, click on the "Attach files to this post?" check box on the bottom left of your screen. After you hit "Post" it will open up a window to allow you to attach your images

Insert Image:
When you are posting, click on the "insert image" icon above (the box with the mountain and sun on it) and it will open up a window for you to put a URL. I use Photobucket, I'm not sure what you'll be using if you go with this option

I hope this answered your question... if not, let me know

RAQ – thanks hosting and for the wonderful handmade sketches – love them! Poor you and your unfortunate day of “klutz”. Hope yesterday was better! Your sketch #1 “missing you” card is gorgeous! The eyelets with the ribbon is such a nice touch!

Dee great ad colours! Thanks! Hope to use them on one sketch!

Christineramey – I use Paint to add in my watermark of my name.

Sue - Acrossthepond – Congratulations - I will stop by on your blog on the weekend. Mine is quite outdated but hope to fix that in the coming weeks!

Cindy – beautiful creations for last week!

Sandy – beautiful card in the ad colours and it’s always nice that you add your own touch to the design.

Britishgirl – wonderful sketch #2 and cute fall image! Love the leaves!

Suevan – beautiful white snowflake card! It is hard some time to get the colours right when taking a photo. Love the embossed snowflakes and little gems that you added!

Donna – it sure is a busy week for you outside of your craftroom. Hope you enjoyed the wine last night!

Have a great day - hope to get to my craftroom tonight or on the weekend!

Raquel - Afraid no cards ready yet as I have been playing with my blogBlushing Blushing . Thanks to everyone who has stopped by already. Now I have one and had some help with doing stuff on it I will be able to follow easily other on their blogs. I tell you I must have been driving Sandy mad with it over the last few daysBlushing Blushing "thanks chuck" (Wallace speakLOL )

It is my sons birthday next week so I have been out gift shopping this morning but I did get round to make his card this afternoon when I got back. No photo yet, need to wait for DH to take a good one.

Btw Raquel I made Shepherds Pie for tea on Monday, it was lovely and warming just what we needed as it had been cold all day.

NanaDonna - like the sound of the glass of wine on the deck, just up my street. Do you have red in too?

I see some great cards already but I will have to comment tomorrow now as its work tonight and I still need to make their pack-ups for tomorrow. So catch you all then.

Sue

P.S. Hope your car is OK again Raquel?
