a rant and a moan-Sweet Stampin challenge+CES challenge+Stamp Something challenge

Good morning everyone...right cover your ears AAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHH and a little bit of swearing $*^%$&^* , I gave the Internet fairy a real good talking too but it didn't work yet...I will ring BT today and see what on earth is going on...I can get on sites ok but commenting is taking ages and ages to go through and I have loads and loads to catch up with and I miss my blog hopping to you all, so I'm so sorry but you will have to bear with me a little while longer...my card for today is using this stunning little winter image Peek a boo Snowbaby from Belles and Whistles I got this from the fabulous Summer for making the card for the Advent but if your needing it in the UK you can get it at Bunny Zoe's Crafts here and part of the money goes to Breast Cancer charity did you know, sorry about the bad piccies but I forgot to photograph it until the sun was setting and my camera doesn't like that light, I will take another in the light of day...I don't know whats up lately but my crafting confidence is rock bottom for various reasons, don't get me wrong I don't think there's anything wrong with my cards just I'm not happy with them, I see them in my head and make them but they never turn out how I want, I need to give myself a good shake I think...I love this stamp and I love the papers but I'm really not happy with the card and I haven't a clue why...I coloured this gorgeous little thing with Distress inks and teamed it up with more of these lush My Minds Eye Fine & Dandy Tickled Pink paper pad, love those colours...I used some fantastic Prima Lace and a lush satin ribbon and bow, I finished with a few gems and a rub on...the sketch is from Sweet Stampin challenge and I'm also entering it for the Stamp Something Winter Something challenge and the CES Bold and Bright challenge too...well I have had a hissy fit and a moan so will leave you in peace to enjoy the rest of your day...have a brilliant one

There is really nothing wrong with your card. I like it a lot. Sweet stamp, fun paper , great bow and the cutest lace.
Happy to read that you also have the problem to make the card exactly as it is in your head.
Hope your internet will be normal soon.
Have a great day.
Hugs Sinikka

Hi Mina,
This is different for you but I love it. Bright colours and papers, fantastic ribbons and a fabulous image.
Hope you get the internet sorted out. I'm having laptop problems - keep losing Explorer. Trying to convince William my machine is past it.

Hi Mina, Im sorry to hear about your problems with your internet, do you have Firefox, its a lot easier to bloghop with that, give it a try if you dont its free.
Now I dont know why you are worried about your card its stunning, the design is tops and your papers and colouring are gorgeous, maybe its just that things have caught up with you, you started the year with your aunts funeral, perhaps you are not quite over that. Take care with love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

Justine said...

awwwwwww, I think it is this time of year because I am feeling the same way about my designs. I think I am happy with them until I photograph and cannot get them to look the way they do in real life and then I compare my projects to the talent around blog land and feel like mine are ugly. BUT lady you are one of those gals that I admire and look up to. We all want to be like MINA!! So chin up everything you share is amazing, yes this is beautiful
