Charmed i'm Sure!

Evening people, Hope your all well. Well i've had a right to do with my camera Mick bought me one for mothers day and i've only just got it sorted out, so put the memory card in and off i went to take a pic of my new card, and low and behold the bloody thing was awful! the picture quality was terrible, i was gobsmacked, i'm not gonna name the maker just in case lol but it wasn't a cheap one! Mick's furious and i'm gutted so we played and altered the settings but no luck. I then took one with my faithful mobile and despite that bieng blurred it was nothing like the camera. So my wonderful DH has just been on that well known shopping site and bought me a new Hitachi HDC-886e it's got a whopping 8mp so should do the job. I'm no David Bailey nor do i aspire to be but i want to be able to see the flippin glitter on my cards for god sake.

Anyhoo enough moaning lol This is a card i made last night, haven't had chance to do one today since having loads of housework (thanks to visiting grandkids!) and then the camera saga. I'm putting this in for two challenges firstly the stamping for the weekend challenge, we had a choice of 2 sketches this week and i went along with Donna's it looked great and i have to say well done for that one it was a wicked design.

The second challenge is Just Magnolia who wanted Charms so i've added a wee one here fingers crossed it shows up ok.

The papers are Digi once again, i love this image with a passion a friend sent me a few stamped as i don't have this stamp.....................yet! But i'm nearly out so must buy one lol, it's been watercoloured as i'm still building my copics and pro markers hee hee, Used my nestie's to sit her on, my Martha punch, some pink satin ribbon,pink satin bows, gems, a sentiment stamp, some lovely prima and other mixed flowers with some cute lil leaves and of course the charm. I'm really pleased with this i know the pic is crappy but IRL it's lovely, and when you look at it imagine it the foccus bieng 3 times worse, i dunno who woulda Kodak'ed it....oops i meant imagined lol.

  9. Hiya Tasha

    oh gosh what a saga with your camera, I hope you enjoy your new one, but considering this photo has been taken with your mobile, it's pretty darn good hey. We bought a new camera some months back and it is brill, but you need a masters degree to understand all the jargon that comes with it. So I just keep it on auto and press the makro setting, works ok for me so!! Your card is beautiful Tasha, it's got a fab dimension to it, such an adorable Tilda which you have also coloured beautifully too, lovely choice of colours and papers, loving the punched border and all of those pretty flowers, the charm adds to the finishing touch. Thank you for playing along with this weeks challenge, you've done a great job using Donna's sketch, good luck xx vicki xx
