CR84FN 24

Hello my sweet blog friends.  I can't believe it has been since Monday that I posted.  It has been beautiful weather and I have just been outside enjoying it....that was until the rain and cool front came through yesterday.  I had intended on planting my flowers today, but it was too cool even in my jacket.  It is supposed to be 70 and sunny tomorrow.  So cross your fingers for me.

It is time for another CR84FN color challenge.  We have some beautiful pastel blues to work with. 


I see the blurry problem still exists on my cropped photo.  I am now thinking it is Blogger.  Everything looks good on Picasa.  I am clueless.  I need tech support please!  ha ha.


I used more of my My Minds Eye paper along with my horribly neglected PTI set called Embellishments, PTI Banner Border Dies, and Spellbinders Classic Squares LG.  A Martha Stewart Doily, Memrie Mare Etsy seam binding, May Arts twine, and a flower from Reccollections found at Michales craft store.

I have to say that I LOVE this quote.  I am so bad to limit myself becuase I am afraid of failing.   I need to frame this and put it on my wall in the craft room.

I used this great sketch at Mojo Monday


Make sure you stop by the rest of the DT's blogs.

OHHH so sweet! Love that color. I had to laugh when you said that about PTI this month...I thought the same thing and was happy they did not tempt me this month. cherry

It is gorgeous, and I love aqua!! The photo doesn't really look blurry actually, just a little soft (you're right, it might be blogger)... Thank you for sharing as you always do the beautiful card.
hugs from silly girl ;o)

heather, try sharpening this picture in picasa-(save it under a different name) and load it into your test blog to see if it looks better to you. if it is blogger, that might fix it.

beautiful take on the color challenge--these colors are going to be a challenge for me:) hope you get your planting done!

This is gorgeous Heather ... so soft and serene and a lovely take on the challenge ... the problem you have takes nothing away from the beauty of the card ...

Marlies said...

Gorgeous card! love the soft colours. I have the same problem about the blurry look, in picassa it looks fine. I made at leest 20 photos of my last card thinking its me who can't make photos, tried sharpening but in blogger its still blurry.

Gorgeous card Heather...
I'm finding some of my pics look good in picasa but when I upload them to the blog they're not as good :(
I used these colors on one of the Easter cards I made today. I think I'll enter the challenge and use that for my Monday post...

Love the soft blue and ivory color combo, Heather. Just beautiful with the flower and overall vintage look. Frustrating about the photo, I know. It looks good to me, but you know how much more distinct it is IRL. I'll bet it's amazing. My address is...
