You know when your just not happy with something...

Good morning everyone did you all have a wonderful day yesterday?...it tiddled down here all day so I took one look out of the window as the heavens were open and it was so grey and thought...nope not going mooching in that and got out my paintbrush instead...oh by the way for all those who asked what a cream tea is, its scones, thick creamy Irish (or wherever your from) butter, clotted cream and home made jam....mmmmmmmmmmmmmm delicious, but everything has to be laid on with a trowel so that it leaves your teeth marks in it and a blotch of cream on your nose when you bite into it...right back to the paintbrush, I wish I hadn't, you know when your just not happy with what you have done, I'm not a happy bunny at my colouring of this stunningly beautiful new Sugar Nellie Digi called Flora, isn't she amazing...I just know I will have to colour her again because there's something I'm not happy with about it and I haven't done her justice...anyway I coloured her with distress inks and used this gorgeous My Minds eye Bohemia At the Beach paper...I love this paper...I finished with some seam binding and a love charm, I used the fab sketch from A La Card Monkey challenge but didn't notice it was supposed to be a birthday card so I'm not sure it will count...I'm also entering this for the 7 Kids College Fund circles challenge too...right I have my camera in my bag ready we are heading back to the beach hopefully today to get some photos, that's if hypothermia or floods don't stop us, I know I have been told a million times not to exaggerate lol...have a wonderful Sunday everyone

Don't be so hard on yourself, Mina! She's beautiful and beautifully painted - as always. Awful weather here in SW Scotland -the heating's on, it's blowing a gale, pouring with rain and absolutely freezing. Stay cosy! Tracey xx

Linda C said...

Oh I know what you mean. There is something wrong with the pic. There is a big streak in the dress. Ooops sorry not a streak, that was a smudge on my glasses. :) Sorry dear, it is indeed perfect and you are just going to have to enjoy the compliments. But do color her again, because she is a beautiful digi that you can do many things with.

bernietom47 said...

I would be over the moon if something I colored came out half as beautiful as this. Love the card.
Blessings Bernie

Rufus said...

I have to say that I agree with what everyone else has said! I can't for the life of me see a thing wrong with her. But if you are so unhappy with her, I'll be glad to take her in! Seriously, she's quite lovely. I'd be thrilled to pieces if I could color her 1/2 as well as you have! If you aren't happy with her, I can't wait to see one where you are happy!
